New Straits Times - - News -

The in­au­gu­ral C-Cy­cle Chal­lenge has been given the thumbs up by many, in­clud­ing top guns who par­tic­i­pated in yes­ter­day’s event.

Na­tional Heart In­sti­tute chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Azhari Yakub, who joined the Fun Ride, said the NST had done a great job.

“It has brought to­gether cy­clists of dif­fer­ent back­grounds to pro­mote a healthy lifestyle.”

CIMB chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Datuk Seri Tengku Zafrul Tengku Ab­dul Aziz, who fin­ished the 35km Fun Ride in one hour, said the event was a great place for cy­clists to meet and ex­change tips.

“I ap­plaud the NST for or­gan­is­ing such an event, with a med­i­cal team and sup­port cars, as well as pa­trols fol­low­ing us through the route. I’ll join next year and aim for the podium.”

The ad­viser Datuk Ahirudin At­tan, who cy­cled with his daugh­ter, Ahirine Ahirudin, agreed that the event was a suc­cess.

“The event was well or­gan­ised. There was a cy­clist who had a mi­nor ac­ci­dent, and the med­i­cal team was quick to act.”

Ahirudin said he was happy to fin­ish 160km in five hours and 41 min­utes. He said the event should be held an­nu­ally.

Other in­dus­try lead­ers who par­tic­i­pated were GCH Re­tail Sdn Bhd chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Pierre Olivier De­planck, So­cial Se­cu­rity Or­gan­i­sa­tion (Socso) deputy chief ex­ec­u­tive (cor­po­rate) Datin Azlaily Abd Rah­man, Socso board mem­ber Datuk Dr Sudin Haron and Bank Mua­malat chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Datuk Mohd Redza Shah Ab­dul Wahid.
