And our big charity day has come ! We cycled for 270+ km as a group in order to raise funds for WORLD BIKE RELIEF, an Ngo that provides bicycles to communities in Africa in need of easy and affordable transportation. Furthermore, it was an activity that promoted health and exercise for our students, one of the pillars of Wellbeing here at CDL. What a well-rounded day. What a joy to participate. Thanks to our wonderful Mr. Tom for making this happen.
If you are reading this, you can still contribute ! Our boys cycled very hard today. https://join.worldbicyclerelief.org/Olympuscycles/challenge
Arsenii rose the earliest for his turn, and beat the student record of 30 minutes on the bike: 17.8 kilometers ! He is quite proud of his achievement.
Our house tutor Mr Rodrigo was next, quickly getting into the top 4. Quite an accomplishment for 8.30 in the morning !!!
Later this morning, Ilya M. rode the bike to a technical inconvenience — the chain fell off! We fixed it immediately , but Ilya had lost some steam. Never took his mask off; a genuinely responsible young adult.
Fran rode to some excellent results, and on the day of his very birthday ! We are very proud of Fran.
Ryunosuke rides as Said watches on. He did quite well, slipping into the top 5. Well done, Ryunosuke.
Toma tries his own thirty minutes… apparently in a coat! It looks like he has recovered from being unwell and is ready for some serious exercise.
Albion rides solo! Eyes on the prize: getting into the top 10.
And who is this impromptu boarder ! Mr Usher showed support for our charity project by riding a few minutes. Cycling is not his strength, but he was a great sport.
Akihiro did well… being assisted by Mr Usher and Mr Xavier! It was great to see so many of our boys participate, even if cycling is not their cup of tea. It was for a good cause, after all.
Here she is: the ride report for the sum total of participants today. Excellent work, boys. Expect this again next year — better and revamped ! Thanks again to Mr Tom, Mr Xavier & Mr Rodrigo for overseeing today’s activity. We are still waiting to see Mr Tom’s results !!
