Fond memories of the gang
They used to cycle to school and back every day.
FATHER of two Gan Vi King believes that cycling is more than just a leisure activity.
The senior financial controller at Global Oriental Berhad based in Seri Kembangan, Selangor, shares a passion for cycling with his loved ones. His love for the activity began in his childhood days in Tanjung Kling, Melaka, when he would cycle to school every day with his friends.
“We would cycle to school and then back home. We would pass by each of our friends’ houses, and so cycling was very much a group activity,” Gan, 46, shares.
He even remembers his first bike, a Chopper, which was a gift from his father.
These days, because of the pressures of work and life, cycling is more of a leisure activity rather than a daily one.
“I enjoy cycling with friends I meet in Facebook groups because I feel it’s something special. We meet as strangers and, after a ride, we become friends,” he enthuses.
Gan will be a part of the upcoming cycling event Ride for Malaysia because he thinks that it’s a good way for him and his family to spend the day.
He’s also all for an event that celebrates the spirit of togetherness among Malaysians.
“I will definitely be taking part because it will also be motivation for me to get back into cycling more actively. Plus, we will get to enjoy a day outdoors, be close to nature, and get some fresh air,” he adds.
Ride for Malaysia is an event jointly organised by the Star Media Group and Sunsuria Bhd to promote national unity and patriotism among Malaysians. It will be held on July 30 at Sunsuria City in Putrajaya.
