The Cayman Islands Cycling Association (CICA) has once again partnered with Feed Our Future (FOF) to host the 3rd annual Feed Our Future Century Ride, which will commence at Ristorante Pappagallo on Sunday, April 9th, 2017 at 5am. All registration and sponsorship proceeds will benefit Feed Our Future’s school meals programme, which continues to make a positive impact on the lives of children across the Cayman Islands.

Registered cyclists are invited to check in between 4:00am and 4:50am at Pappagallo in West Bay to cycle 100 miles around the island. A ride briefing will take place prior to race time at 4:50am. Teams of 5 riders are invited to compete to complete the Century route of 20-miles and teams of 2 will battle for the 50-mile mark. Prizes will be awarded thanks to sponsors.

Registration fee of CI $75 includes FOF 2017 Commemorative Cycling Jersey, pasta salad lunch courtesy of Pappagallo and refreshments throughout the event. For CI $25 individuals may enjoy lunch, refreshments and participate in the Century Ride less the cycling jersey.

“Our partnership with CICA has fed over 1500 students in need in past years. Our progress in positively impacting and feeding Cayman’s youth is only possible through the generosity of our community partners, sponsors and supporters, whom are all are integral to the ongoing success of this event,” said Stacey VanDevelde, Feed Our Future Chairwoman.
