Driz­zle doesn’t dampen spir­its

New Straits Times - - News -

The driz­zle did not stop cy­clists from com­plet­ing their rides.

Many who joined the 35km Fun Ride ar­rived at the fin­ish­ing line as early as 9.15am.

Peter Tan, 57, said the event was all about hav­ing fun and bond­ing with one another while ex­er­cis­ing.

“We’re avid cy­clists and join many cy­cling events as a group. We want to pro­mote a healthy lifestyle among the younger gen­er­a­tion.”

Ar­ju­naidi Kailan, 52, from Bursa Malaysia team, said the fun ride was to pay trib­ute to one their club’s found­ing mem­bers, who died of heart fail­ure ear­lier this month.

At the car­ni­val, peo­ple were tak­ing pic­tures with “su­per­heroes”, such as Spi­derman, Hulk and Iron Man.

There were also ar­cade ma­chines, an in­flat­able fut­sal pitch and a juice bike where you can blend your own bi­cy­cle-pow­ered juice.

Eco World head of sales and mar­ket­ing Tiong Siow Yin said the car­ni­val cre­ated a sense of com­mu­nity.
