The Riviera Water Bike Challenge 2022 was held this Sunday, June 5, in the presence of H.S.H. Prince Albert II, H.S.H. Hereditary Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella.
The start of the race was given by H.S.H. the Sovereign Prince at 10:10 am at the Yacht Club of Monaco. 19 water bikes took the start in the Port of Monaco, to join the route off the Solarium of the Rainier III Dam where the relay area was located.
A total of 95 people participated in the race, including 41 sports celebrities.
At the Solarium, the public was present in numbers to encourage the teams who pedaled 22 laps in difficult conditions: heat, humidity, swell.
The objective of the Riviera Water Bike Challenge is to propose an original and friendly sports challenge in order to raise funds for the prevention of drowning. This year, the funds raised will finance the «Swim for Safety» project supported by the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation in Sri Lanka, to teach swimming and water safety to disadvantaged children.
The public could follow the race online, from start to finish, and make donations by voting for their favourite team. »
