The stage is set for the third edition of the Sokoke MTV cycling challenge to take place in Watamu, Kilifi County this weekend.
The fun 80 km race blends adventure and competitive cycling, according to the event coordinator Noni Mbuggus Noni said the cyclists will on Saturday ride from Watamu and head towards Sabaki river with a loop in Malindi for a stop before heading towards the coastline on return to the finish podium at Turtlebay Resort.
“The winner of the past editions, Kenyan cycling ace David Kinjah is expected to lead the pack in the competitive race next Monday,” said Noni.
She said the event has been organised by A Rocha Kenya and supported by Turtlebay and Oceansports resorts to aid the conservation of Arabuko- Sokoke forest.
She added that the event will also raise funds for A Rocha Kenya’s Eco- Scholarship Scheme that ensures 100 high school students living around the forest don’t miss out on education and become champions of enviromental protection
Arabuko- Sokoke forest is the largest remaining dry coastal forest in Eastern and Southern Africa and it’s conservation is vital.
