FRIDAY, MAY 4: They have dressed as everything from ballerinas to caveman for the End to End race.
And this year they will be donning their finest blue and orange tuxedos to take on the challenge.
But as well as put a smile on the face of spectators, the First Atlantic Commerce team has raised over $50,000 in sponsorship for the End-to-End’s various charities over the last four years.
Team captain, Chris Burns, says his squad of cyclists hope to raise another $15,000 this year.
He said: “The tradition started when my good friend Craig Martin and I were bet we wouldn’t cycle the End-to-End in dresses.
“We’ve never been the type to turn down a bet and a week before the event, with no training, we bought our dresses and raised $3,000.
“We had a fantastic time and were able to raise a good amount of money thanks to some very generous friends.
“The following year Craig was going to be off island for the event so I set about recruiting some of my colleagues and friends to take his place.
“Quite quickly there were 10 of us and our super hero theme seemed to help us raise a lot of extra money.”
The team has grown since their first End-to-End as have the number of fancy dressed competitors taking part in the event.
But if there was a team that embodied the spirit of the End-to-End it would surely be the motley crew from First Atlantic Commerce.
Mr Burns added: “The Catlin Bermuda End-to-End is an incredible community and charity event, which brings together all the best elements of Bermuda.
“I am amazed every year by the amount of people that take part, people’s generosity and by the people that are prepared to put aside their inhibitions to join team First Atlantic Commerce.
“Bermuda’s charities need more help than ever at the moment and I am happy to be part of an event that helps address that issue, and hopefully we’ll make a few people laugh along the way.”
