We are pedaling our way to the CyberCycle Championship!
More than three dozen residents on the campus of Westminster-Canterbury on Chesapeake Bay are taking part in a CyberCycle competition that started with 101 other communities around the country. Right now they have pedaled their way to being one of only four remaining teams. It's a 48 hour competition. When one resident finishes their run another gets on. So the CyberCycle is pretty much going the whole time. It's created a fun competitive atmosphere around campus with 5 of our cyclists making it into the top 25 of the more than 700 riders in the competition. The Championship round is set for April 9th and 10th and our residents are pedaling around the clock in hopes of making it there.
