How was your weekend fellas?
Over the weekend, Doha Joy Rides had their first Joy Ride at the Aspire cycle track. The goal of this group is to get people outdoors and on their bikes, smiling and socializing without any sort of tight fitting gear.
Since the group is all inclusive, families were welcome to attend and you got to see kiddies cycling along with adults-bringing joy to all.
The ride started at 9 am and including a short break, riders were packed and set to go just around 10 am. Head down to their instagram page to view images and to the twitter page for tweets related to their first Joy Ride.
Two of our team members are also a part of the Doha Joy Riders team, can you spot them in the picture?
Draw your favourite piece of music
Yes draw, not write.
We’ve teamed up with #LearningFest14 to bring you a truly creative challenge.
Artist Yuri Suzuki will be demonstrating how colour creates different sounds. Then it’s up to you to compose music that makes our hearts sing (and not our ears bleed).
It’s going to be a blast (get it?).
Please note: no instruments are required.
Recently, I went to see the decades old tradition of using the cannon to signal the end of the fasting day. With a maximum of 3 days left of Ramadan, there is limited time to view this tradition. You’ll get to see that it is a family affair with photo opportunities aplenty until almost the last minute. Do bring in something to consume at the firing of the cannon. Break your fast, pray at the state mosque and drive to enjoy an iftar meal afterwards. The area has lots of restaurants within a 5 minute drive.
For those of you who aren’t fasting, you’re more than welcome to witness too as this isn’t restricted to be a Muslim only affair.
Where: State mosque parking lot.
When: Throughout Ramadan.
