Cycle & Make A Difference Charity Series


On Sunday, November 23rd 2014, MSP CAT and the Myanmar Cycling Federation together with the Ministry of Sport kicked off the “Cycle and Make A Difference Charity Series”. More than 80 local and foreign cyclists participated in two races: one road race at Ou Yin Wa Village of Hlegu Township and one mountain race at Nga Su Taung village.

At the same time, 20 volunteers from MSP CAT along with a throng of excited villagers were standing on the sidelines and cheering the racers on. After registration and insurance had been done for each cyclist, the road race commenced at 8: 30 am with a starting pistol fired by U KhinMaung Win. There were three age categories, under 19, 19 to 25 and over 25 in order to achieve fairness and to generate talented young cyclists. The race course, a 46-kilometre long trail, is famous for very steep -- gradient 11-hills as well as attractive mountainous scenery.

The road race finished around 10:30 am and a few tireless cyclists moved on to Nga Su Taung to participate in the mountain bike race. This was the same distance, 46-kilometre, trail for over-19s, and a 23-kilometre trail for under-19s. It began at 1pm. Since the roads were in plantation areas, there were many bypass roads that led some riders astray despite our efforts to place MSP volunteers as ushers at doubtful junctions along the way.
