Early morning motorists are advised that the Bermuda Bicycle Association will be holding a race tomorrow morning, Sunday, October 29th, from 7:30am to 10am on various roads in Pembroke, Hamilton, Smith’s and St George’s parishes.
A Ministry of Public Works spokeswoman said: “There will be no road closures. However, motorists and pedestrians are advised to use caution and to give priority and consideration to the race participants during this time. Motorists are also advised to follow directions given by the Police and Race Officials.”
The race route is as follows:
- Start/Finish at the bus stop on the east bound lane close to the Pembroke Community Club on North Shore, continue heading east until reaching the roundabout at the junction of Kindley Field and St David’s Road
- Cyclists navigate the roundabout heading west back along North Shore turning left on St John’s Road, then make the right turn onto Pitts Bay Road back to the Start/Finish. Participants will make a maximum of one lap
It was also noted that Bermuda’s traditional, or lawful speed limit “will be raised to 75km/hr to accommodate the speeds of the cyclists on the race route only between the hours of 7:30am and 10am on Sunday morning.
The Ministry also thanked Bermuda’s motoring public in advance, for their cooperation while the races are underway.
