The ride will commence at the “Dollar Sign” monument at the entrance to Punta Gorda town at 6 pm and make its way to Belmopan, finishing around noon on Saturday, March 15.
Organizers say that food will be available for purchase at the end of the bike ride on Saturday in front of Caribbean Tire in the nation’s capital.

The Challenge Gobie Foundation, which is registered as a charity organization, was created 6 years ago by Alan Gobie with the expressed goal of assisting Belizeans in need of financial assistance for medical reasons.
