Now in it’s fifth consecutive year the 1333 Bikeathon has returned to Sri Lanka to once again cover 1333km around the country to build awareness of the freephone line and also to raise money to take the line operational 24 hours per day.
Our 2018 president, Lee Bazalgette, has undertaken to ride the latter half of the ride, which is five days of gruelling hills as the team ride from Pasikudah on the East Coast, up to Ella and then down the hill to Colombo via Ratnapura and bentota.
Here’s Lee with Kumar Sangakara on the first day of the ride to Chillaw.
