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.”
