Lagos State Government has unveiled the programme for the forthcoming Cycling Lagos Championship scheduled to be held on October 28th, 2023.

The Director, Sports Development in the Lagos State Sports Commission, Kolawole Moses, hailed the competition’s organisers for creating awareness on the use of bicycles as a means of movement amid the fuel subsidy removal, which has increased the cost of transportation.

He reaffirmed the commitment of the Lagos State Government to promoting grassroots sports development at all levels.

“As you all know, cycling is a sport that has been doing well under Lagos State Sports Commission, and Lagos State Cycling Association has also been of tremendous support to the growth of the sport. This is the reason Lagos State Sports Commission will not shy away from any sports association that is doing well,” he said.
