THE RIDE HASN’T all been a rough one, says Keith Yearwood.

Local cycling’s under-fire president has shot back, taking exception to Colin Forde’s criticism of his leadership by pointing to his achievements and long-standing tenure in office.

“When you can say I am no good for cycling [it] looks stupid and erroneous, considering I have run unopposed on so many occasions, so you’re saying that the general body is clueless and have nothing better to do with their time,” said Yearwood, who has spent the greater part of 20 years in office.

“We just received ten bicycles free of cost and we expect another ten just shortly. We got the gates for the BMX track free of cost and now they’ve been cleared from the Port, so we’re just waiting for the plans to be finalised by Town and Country Planning, so we can be just the second Caribbean country to have a state-of-the-art BMX track.
