Following the success of the inaugural “Tour de LINK” last summer, Link Asset Management Limited (Link), the manager of Link Real Estate Investment Trust (Link REIT, stock code: 823), today (Tuesday) announced the comeback of this flagship community event across six Link’s malls from 3 to 28 August, inviting people in the city to participate in indoor cycling leagues and get engaged in building a healthy community.
“Sport is a universal language that can bring people together. After the enthusiastic response to the ‘Tour de LINK’s debut last year, we are building on the event’s success and are inviting people of all ages to ride with their families and enjoy a bit of fun competition again this summer. Leveraging our extensive network across the city, we hope to strengthen intergenerational bonding and build a cross-district healthy community together.”
As the first-of-its-kind in-mall cycling relay event in Hong Kong last year, the “Tour de LINK” attracted nearly 6,000 Hong Kong citizens to participate in the challenge. For the “Tour de LINK 2022”, competitors of all ages are invited to participate for free. In addition to regular bikes, children’s bikes will be provided at each venue. The competition will be held in two rounds from 3 to 28 August in six of Link’s malls across Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the New Territories. The first round will take place from 3 to 14 August at Lok Fu Place, Kai Tin Shopping Centre and Wo Che Plaza, and the second round will run from 17 to 28 August at TKO Spot, T Town and Oi Tung Shopping Centre.
Riders are invited to compete in four categories: men's, women's, children’s and family. Individual and district performance rankings will be displayed on TV leaderboards in the malls, and will be updated on the designated event page on Link’s community e-magazine Channel 823 on a real-time basis.
At each location, the first place winner in each category will be awarded the "District Cycling Champ” title and will receive a commemorative medal. The best record in each category across all six districts will be awarded the "Hong Kong Cycling Champ" in their respective category, with each winner receiving a folding bike and a commemorative medal. The collective distance cycled by all participants in the same district will also be generated as the total district result. On behalf of the winning district’s participants, Link will donate $100,000 worth of meal coupons to elderly residents in need through non-government organisations in the winning district as a charitable gesture and to spread love throughout the community.
Link's malls have always served as community gathering hubs. With the return of the Tour de LINK 2022, Link is bringing people from all walks of life together and enhancing people’s well-being through physical activity and sports in vibrant community spaces.
