Eco World wants to hold event annually with NST
Property developer Eco World Development Group Bhd expressed its commitment to make the C-Cycle Challenge an annual affair with the
after the highly anticipated event made an impressive mark at Bandar Puncak Alam here.
Eco World president and chief executive officer Datuk Chang Khim Wah said the overwhelming response prompted them to agree to work with NST for more editions of the C-Cycle Challenge in years to come.
Chang said Eco World not only enjoyed working with the NST on the event, but both parties also shared the goal of promoting a healthy lifestyle.
“This is in line with the branding that Eco World is creating today, which is to promote healthy living within suitable environments.
“We do not want the C-Cycle Challenge to stop at this. We are more than delighted to work with NST again.
“I hope the next C-Cycle Challenge will be bigger and better than today’s (yesterday).”
Chang said the good response towards the C-Cycle Challenge reflected the growing popularity of cycling.
“As part of our marketing efforts, we have organised mini cycling events. Our Eco Century project, for example, offers bicycles for rent.
“We are committed to building more than 200km of bicycle lanes throughout our 18 projects in the country.
“Bicycle lanes and healthy lifestyles have been part of Eco World’s DNA from day one, including jogging tracks.”
