CYCLING enthusiasts rolled into Caves Village Shopping Centre for the BOB Family Fun Ride on Saturday. The non-competitive Family Fun Ride, held in conjunction with the 9th Annual Tour of the Bahamas, invited cycling enthusiasts to participate in a 10-mile ride beginning at Caves Point, heading east to Saunders Beach and back. Amateur cycling enthusiasts rode along with pros, including the Coco's Racing Team from Florida. "BOB, Bank of the Bahamas, is proud to sponsor events that promote healthy lifestyles for Bahamian families," said Michael Basden, BOB marketing manager. "The Family Fun Ride provided a rare and exciting opportunity for local cycling enthusiasts to ride side-by-side with professional cyclists." BOB executives and cycling enthusiasts who rode the circuit included Paul McWeeney, managing director, Vaughn Delaney, deputy managing director, Ian Thompson, retail sales manager and Jeffrey Burnside, messenger. Bahamian Olympic hopeful, 17-year-old Jay Major, who finished 3rd in Category 3 of the 42-mile Tour of the Bahamas circuit road race, also participated. All the cyclists completed the 10-mile circuit in less than 90 minutes. More than 100 riders participated in the competitive Tour of The Bahamas that attracted more spectators than ever before to the official time trials and races with starts at the Clifton Heritage Park Saturday and Sunday.
