Exercise Bike Challenge
After the completion of the stub. We are allowed to participate at the Exercise Bike Challenge. Since the indoor bike units are limited – ( 20 participants per batch) The Exercise Bike Challenge was divided into 3 group.
The first batch started their exercise challenge for a total of 20 minutes at around past 2:15 pm , Our batch started the exercise challenge around past 2:40 pm ( second batch) and the last batch started around past 3:20 pm. This is some sort of warm-up for those who are first timers.
The actual competition started with a short warm-up exercise and audio-video presentation. It took about 10 to 15 minutes before the actual competition took place. ( 20 minutes ) the one who had the most pedaled distance in 20 minutes are declared the winners. ( There were 3 batches ). When the winners were finally announced, There are from first , second and third batch who won the first , second and third place.
It was a wonderful experience for all of us who participated at the challenge. I have not participated at the actual competition since i am not a competitive biker and it was observed by some participants and visitors that organizers should not have lumped -up those participants who are not biker by re-classifying the competition into ( amateur and professional ). Some of the participants have experiences in mountain and in outdoor biking.

Note: The organizers of the indoor bike challenge must be conscious with time management since our batch was initially booked for the 1:50 pm but was moved to the second batch since only 20 bikers can be accommodated per batch. I also wrote at the comment and suggestion slip at the venue area.
