Sharjah Girl Guides Cycling to Compete in Spinneys Dubai 92 Cycle Challenge
10 guides and 5 senior guides trained in ‘Escapade Cycling Team’ for three consecutive months in preparation
Sharjah, 20 December 2018: It’s fast, it’s fun, it’s gives a sense of freedom and independence – such are the wonders of cycling. Sharjah Girl Guides trained the guides and senior guides (aged 12 to 18) for the past three months so that they could enhance their physical abilities and join the Spinneys Dubai 92 cycle challenge.
The program titled, “Escapade Cycling Team,” began in October and experts guided the girls on bike riding, from beginner until expert level. They were taught the do’s and don’ts of commuting by bikes. They also got to experience free biking around specially allocated areas in the UAE.
They learned how to participate in national bike races online and how many kilos should be accomplished before their participation. In the span of three months, the girls were enrolled in variety of cycling training courses that propelled them to continually push their boundaries and become better versions of themselves.
Shaikha Abdelaziz Al Shamsi, Manager of SGG, remarked: “Riding a bike not only improves physical fitness, but it also benefits learning development and mental health. By taking part in community activities, it increases happiness and give girls more opportunities to make social connections. The escapade cycling team has been a great success and we look forward to seeing the girls cycling with other participants at Spinneys Dubai 92 cycle challenge.”
