The Playa Times Riviera Maya's English Newspaper - - Sports - BY JUAN SOSA

On Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 10, the Tour Mayakoba - Val­ladolid took place. 200 cy­clists took part, and the route was 143 kilo­me­ters. The tour marked a com­mem­o­ra­tive point in history be­cause it kick­started a new sport­ing tra­di­tional that in fu­ture years will in­clude more cities.

The tour’s start­ing point was the Mayakoba re­sort, a par­adise of more than 270 hectares of rain­for­est and crys­tal clear fresh­wa­ter streams sur­rounded by the Caribbean.

The tour started, at 7 a.m. and the fin­ish was in front of the Mu­nic­i­pal Palace of La Sul­tana del Ori­ente in Val­ladolid, Yu­catan, which is to­day rec­og­nized as a Pue­blo Mágico.

The pro­ceeds will go to pro­grams that work with at-risk youth, such as the Asociación Toma Con­trol A.C., whose mis­sion is to con­trib­ute to the in­te­gral for­ma­tion of teenagers on the out­skirts of Can­cun.

The first or­ga­nized ride through the Yu­catan Penin­sula took place on Oc­to­ber 10, with the pro­ceeds go­ing for atrisk youth pro­grams
