MALACCA: About 80 mountain bike enthusiasts from the newly-launched Kelab Berbasikal Alam Sekitar took part in a night ride in the old city here to attract more members.
Club president, Toh Kian Keong said, besides taking up cycling as a hobby for a healthy lifestyle, the members wanted to create greater awareness among locals on environmental issues through their activities.
He said the club would carry out voluntary social activities such as gotong royong during their biking rounds to help preserve the environment.
As part of the club’s launch, Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam took part in the ride with the members along Malacca River from Spice Garden to the 17th-century Stadthuys Dutch complex.
The club will hold activities every Wednesday and Friday and is planning the Malacca Mountain Bike Jamboree 2008 in October.
