The Precision Center Community hosted a Bike-a-thon and Walk on Monday 20thMay 2013, traditionally known as Whit Monday in Antigua and Barbuda. With the insertion of the 'walk', it was indeed a welcomed twist to the fun-filled and greatly anticipated social event, which had previously been characterized simply as 'bike-riding.'
The route commenced at Precision Center's location in the Paynter's Industrial Park and ended at the Valley Church Beach, in the Parish of St. Mary's with a beach picnic. In an effort to ensure there were no significant delays in arrival time of both the walkers and the bikers, those walking were given the opportunity to begin an hour earlier, at 5 am. Without much delay, the bikers began their journey shortly after 6 am.
A significant amount of rain fell that morning; however the day's proceedings were in no way hampered. The showers kept temperatures at a minimum, which was ideal for an event of such nature.
