As the Jubilee Insurance Live Free Race begins, several major highways in Nairobi City will be closed on Sunday. Approximately 900 participants are anticipated.
Senior Superintendent of Traffic Geoffrey Njogu assured attendees of their safety while stating that all preparations were in place for a fantastic occasion.
“This is a fantastic move because vehicle accidents have been killing people over time. I strongly believe that cycling keeps us healthy.
We’re ready to assist with event marshaling, and we’ll close several routes for at least six hours. Starting with Langata Road, Landhies Road, and Enterprise Road, we will be directing traffic to Westlands. I ask the organizers to stay on schedule so that we do not impede other drivers,” he said.
At least 70 cyclists from roughly six different countries have confirmed their participation, according to Desmond Momanyi, the Grand Nairobi Bike Race’s race director.
Momanyi remarked, “We are pleased that Kenya is becoming a cycling destination.
