There was excitement in Masindi district last Friday as residents enjoyed the Bunyoro Kitara kingdom  bicycle cycle racing competition.

Hundreds of people gathered on various roads to watch the bicycle cyclists who were participating in the last competition ahead of the finals that will bring all the past winners together at a soon to be communicated date and venue.

The Prime Minister of Bunyoro Kitara Kingdom Owek. Andrew Byakutaga Ateenyi presided over the colorful ceremony.

The competition attracted cyclists from Buruli county, Masindi municipality and Bujenje county.

The cyclists who were flagged off at Masindi Booma playground rode via Hoima Road, Katasenywa, before turning left to Kalyango and continued riding through the areas of Kakwese, Biizi Kituumu and Kamurasi Primary school before joining Kampala Road at Kirasa and ended at Masindi Booma
playground.

The men raced for 30 kilometers while ladies raced around 10 kilometers. The winners in both categories walked away with cash prizes having secured their slots in the upcoming final race that will conclude the first ever edition of the Bunyoro Kitara bicycle races.

The bicycle races are sponsored by MTN Uganda.
