When Singapore's popular cycling challenge OCBC Cycle 2018 Sportive Ride attracted about 6,500 competitors last week, Corning was there to show company spirit and raise money for a cause.
In fact, it was the moment the Corning Cycling family was waiting for all year. Team members woke up bright and early on Sunday morning, gearing up with Corning colors and bicycles lit with the World's First Laser Light Charge & Sync Cable featuring Corning® Fibrance® Light-Diffusing Fiber. In all, 21 Corning Singapore employees set off to participate in another fun and challenging OCBC Cycle 2018 Sportive Ride.
With the first wave off, the cyclists started energetically from Singapore National Stadium, heading westwards towards Pasir Panjang terminal before heading eastwards towards the daunting Benjamin Sheares Bridge, ending back at the National Stadium, covering Singapore's breathtaking skyline. Enduring the summer heat and high level of humidity, all Corning's cyclists completed the ride covering more than 1,000 kilometers within 2 1/2 hours. The first cyclist, Roxana Sara Ghadessy, had a strong finish at 1:33:16.
