Third Mainland Bridge Bike Ride

I am now organizing the biannual Third Mainland Bridge bike rides for the Nigerian Field Society. We had about 35 riders signed up to ride the ~30km bike ride during environmental day this morning but I had to cancel the event on Friday afternoon. Envoronmental day is a day when people are to be cleaning and therefore are not to be on the road from 7AM to 10AM. This is the only time it is safe to bike the Third Mainland Bridge. On this day, environmental day was canceled (no movement restrictions) due to national examinations that were scheduled in the morning. Bummer! Link to news article.

Bob and I have done this ride on a number of occasions in the past and have some great pics. The bike rides usually occur in November and February. Check out these posts.
