On the 18th of April, Virgin Megastore at Cairo Festival City is hosting the launch for the SPARK high-performance sportswear line from 7:30-9:30 pm. Spark’s description on Facebook reads, “Engineered in Germany. Made in Egypt. Developed by athletes for athletes.”

Clear up your schedule, invite a friend, and check out the highly anticipated launching in less than 30 hours. 

The second item on the docket is Power Ride’s Galala Challenge II, the second of its kind after last year’s first challenge on the 28th of December. This year’s event is also hosted by Power Ride Sports, a unique indoor training experience along with specialised fitness sessions and triathlon training programs. Their headquarters is located in the heart of Maadi, which offers you the opportunity to develop your cycling skills using the most technologically advanced indoor bikes, as written in their “About” section on social media.

This time, Power Ride has taken Galala Challenge II to a whole new level of 145 km all the way to Sokhna’s coastal road. The ride will take place on Friday, the 19th of April, from Cairo to Galala and it is split into 3 distances, with a range between 100-145 km. The price is 450 LE that includes support cars, bike support, transportation back to Cairo for cyclists and their bikes, nutrition along the way, and of course the finisher medal.
