The Department of Public Works, in collaboration with Dar tal-Providenza, has announced the “Bike Ride 2024”, a charitable cycling marathon set to take place on Sunday, 6 October 2024. The primary aim of this event is to raise funds for Dar tal-Providenza, an organization dedicated to providing residential care and support to individuals with disabilities.

The marathon will start at the National Park of Malta in Ta Qali, a newly inaugurated project by the Department of Public Works. From there, the route will lead cyclists through Imtarfa, Rabat, and under Mdina to the Gomorrino Bridge, another recent project of the department. Following a brief rest stop, participants will cycle back to the National Park. This event has been organized in close coordination with Transport Malta, the Police force, and the Red Cross, ensuring the safety and well-being of all participants with immediate medical assistance available if needed.
