GCF organises cycling challenge

Ghana Cycling Federa­tion (GCF) in partnership with Radio Gold have organised a New Year 90.5Km cycling challenge to encourage bicycle riding in the country.

The one-day event, which took place at Mamprobi in Accra, was under the theme “Tourism and Pollution Free/Fighting drug abuse”.

Over 25 cyclists from age five to 55 participated in this New Year’s special riding edition.

In an interview with the GNA Sport, Mr Riyahd Mohammed, Vice President of GCF, said he was impressed with the turn out because the day was a holiday and most people were down from the All-Night Church Service, yet some cyclists were present, saying it was an indication that Ghana­ians love cycling.

He said riding bicycle regularly was a form of exercise and was one of the best ways to reduce health problems.

National Junior champion, Joseph Nii Quaye, said he felt ex­cited as a youth champion because anytime he rode the bike, he was always proud of himself.

He called on Ghanaians to support him in prayers as he was preparing towards the African Championship. -GNA
