At 6pm on Friday, His Worship the Mayor John Gonçalvez will officially set off the riders in Main Street outside the House of Parliament. This will be start of what is going to be a very challenging event bearing in mind that the cyclists will only be allowed to stop for a maximum of 5 mins after every hour of cycling. They will use time to recover their energy either by eating foods which high in protein and carbohydrates or to change from day to night clothing.
