ISLAND EX­PLO­RATION GA­LORE

Cycling Plus (Malaysia) - - EVENTS -

At­tract­ing ap­prox­i­mately 1,200 par­tic­i­pants from more than 20 coun­tries, this was RHB’S first ride on the island, branch­ing out af­ter sev­eral years of suc­cess­fully or­gan­is­ing the night­time high­way event – RHB Shi­mano Lekas Ride. RHB Langkawi Ride 2019 fea­tured three dif­fer­ent routes to suit dif­fer­ent lev­els of cyclists, namely the 100km Ea­gle Ride, the 70km Her­itage Ride and the 25km Adventure Ride. The routes fea­tured a mix­ture of Langkawi’s leg­endary her­itage sites, flat open vis­tas, chal­leng­ing gra­di­ents and fast track de­scents, giv­ing par­tic­i­pants am­ple op­por­tu­nity to test their en­durance while en­joy­ing the scenic view of moun­tain ranges, lush green­ery and the ma­jes­tic seafront. There’s still no word on whether this will be an an­nual event added to Malaysia’s cy­cling calendar, but judg­ing by the re­sponse we’re fairly cer­tain many are hop­ing it will be.
