Following last year's successful 40th Anniversary ride, Cayman Water Company (CWC), which provides potable water services for the Seven Mile Beach and West Bay areas, will be hosting their 2nd Annual Pete Ribbins memorial ride on August 17th 2014 in honor of former General Manger Peter 'Pete' Ribbins.

Like last year, this leisurely ride will start at their Abel Castillo Water Works Plant at Peninsula Way, Governor's Harbour on August 17th at 6:30am for those doing the full 40km and at 7:30am for those choosing to do the 10km. The event will be a social ride at no more than 18 mph, so no one should be put off by speed.

Last year approximately seventy cyclists, including the Honorable Premier Alden McLaughlin, took part. It was fantastic celebration for all the cyclists. Prizes were drawn at the end of the event while participants enjoyed a light breakfast. The friendly atmosphere and casual pace ensured that everyone, including the many youngsters, mostly stayed together throughout the ride.

Once again, all proceeds from the ride will go to benefit Cayman Hospice Care, in honor of Pete who was an active member of Cayman's sporting community.

As it has now become an annual event, Cayman Water Company would like see the ride grow and are encouraging everyone to come out and support.

So pump up your tires, dust off your helmets and bicycles and bring the whole family out for a Sunday ride and support of a worthy cause.

Prizes will be drawn at the end of the ride and a light breakfast will be served to all participants. All participants will also receive a 'goody bag'.

Further information and registration for the ride is available on www.caymanactive.com
