It’s the first year for Sinkut View to use mountain biking for the campaign — four lunch time sessions in June. Advanced riders – including 17 students and two to three adults are completing loops of four to 4.5 kilometres, while younger riders are completing 300-metre loops for an average of 20 metres per ride as a group.

So far, students have rode about 450 kilometres, hitting numerous jumps, and climbing over 200 metres. The fundraising campaign finished on June 14.
