Just over a dozen participants took part in the ride against hunger yesterday.
Staged by Joao Gabriel Amado in conjunction with the Barbados Cycling Union (BCU) and Business Network International, the event started off at the Wildey Gymnasium just after 6:15 a.m.
Amado, who is from Portugal and is on his third Caribbean stop following similar enterprises in The Bahamas and Jamaica, was among the group of 11 riders who started on the signal from BCU president Keith Yearwood.
A handful of late comers joined the two-hour ride which travelled through St Philip and St George before wending their way back to the Gym.
While Yearwood was a bit disappointed with the turnout which might have been influenced by the weather forecast, morning activities or Crop Over activities, he expressed gratitude to the faithful riders whom he described as committed to the cause. (KB)
