The second annual Tour de Palliser was held at SIAST Palliser Campus on Thursday.
SIAST staff, students and community teams participated in the event to raise money for student scholarships.
Community teams included representatives from the City of Moose Jaw, the Moose Jaw and District Chamber of Commerce and lifeguards from the Kinsmen Sportsplex.
The participants competed on stationary bikes for 40 minutes trying to log the most miles.
"Where else can you have this much fun at work?" said Jim Large, the master of ceremonies of the event.
Two heats were set up for the teams. Each team was asked to dress up in costumes for the event to add to the fun.
"This has been a very successful event for us and we managed to increase the teams from eight to 11 this year," said Tawnia Stephanson, the donor and alumni relations co-ordinator at SIAST Palliser Campus.
Last year about $2,600 was raised at the event and this year the organizers hope to beat that number.
"We want to raise more money this year. All the money raised stays at Palliser campus," said Stephanson.
