EFRU Cycling Tour 2016

March 7, 2016 in General

With one big achievement behind their backs, the EFRU members can now start focusing on their next feat: the annual Sicily Cycling Tour, upcoming in May, 2016. And indeed the wheels are turning! The organising party is finalising the route while preparations are being made for supplies, back-up teams, and all the rest of the homework that needs to be finalised prior to the tour’s kick-off date. As per previous years, the tour is aimed at cycling enthusiasts who wish to enjoy a good cycling spree with friends and not miss out on Sicily’s good views, food and sun. Safety vehicles will support and cover foremost and rearmost cyclists at all times and a roamer vehicle will ensure that everyone has adequate supplies of water and sugar, throughout. Lodging, overnight, will be provided in the package, details on which will be published soon on www.efru.org.

So go ahead and pencil those dates in! 6th May 2016; The cyclists and the EFRU back-up teams will leave Malta by ferry to Pozzallo and return the following night (7th May) in the same way. In between, the cycling tour will unfold on circa 300KM of Sicilian undulating terrain, which is admittedly challenging but is sure to offer great landscape and seascape views. For those who are still mulling over it: it’s a great 2-day experience with the right balance between adventure, fun and challenging physical activity and while safety is ensured at all times, it is not something that is left to the individual cyclist to worry over. The EFRU first-aid team is there to help.
