CEO of Bestman Games, Nimi Akinkugbe, “We are grateful to Cycology Riding Club and all our sponsors who have partnered with us as we seek to empower our youth regarding their personal finances. The Monopoly Cycling Tour underscored the important link between health and wealth.”

Catherine Bickersteth of Cycology stated that promoting family fun is a common value Bestman Games and Cycology Riding Club share. “Riding with your partner (I ride with my husband) reinforces common goals and allows more bonding time in this busy world of ours. I had a blast taking in the old sights of Lagos, which I have not visited in years or ordinarily would not have visited at all. I had not really taken in the Iddo Terminus during my visits to Iddo Market“.
