Kingston, Jamaica to Negril, Jamaica Challenge 2014

Jamaica by Bike

On October 18, 2014 Jamaica By Bike, along with Toyota Jamaica Ltd, as Presenting Sponsor, and Associate Sponsors, The Wisynco Group, The Jamaica Observer, KFC, Jamaica Producers Group and Margaritaville, will present the most recent cycle of the Kingston to Negril Challenge. Starting from Toyota Jamaica in Kingston, two groups (A & B) will begin the 158 mile journey to Negril, on a route that will take them northward to Ocho Rios, then westward to Negril.

The goal of the 2014 event is to contribute towards needed medical equipment for the University Hospital of the West Indies Intensive Care Units.

Jamaica by Bike hosted close to a hundred & fifty cyclists in the 2014 Kingston to Negril Ride Challenge. This saw the realization of JBBL contributing to the purchase of much needed equipment for The Friends of Mona Rehabilitation Centre.

The 2014 route will take us through the scenic Bog Walk Gorge, traversing the historic Flat Bridge along the banks of the Rio Cobre river to Bog Walk, with a rest and refueling stop in Ewarton. The gradual climb over Mount Rosser descending into Moneague, for a quick rest stop, before proceeding to Ocho Rios via the scenic Fern Gully. Once on the coast we then continue pass Dunns River on our way to Drax Hall. The ride continues westward along the coast passing through several scenic and historic towns before reaching the city of Montego Bay where a lunch stop is planned, before taking on the final forty plus miles into Negril.
