Night Ride with Melaka Chief Minister

18th July Night Ride was special because our Chief Minister consented to ride with us and also officially launched the Environment Cycling Club also known as Kelab Berbasikal Alam Sekitar Melaka.The ride started at Spice Garden where Keong presented YAB Datuk Seri Mohd Ali, our club cycling jersey on his arrival. We rode along the streets of Malacca with 2 police outriders as escorts to control traffic. It was estimated about 60 riders from various cycling clubs and groups joined in as we cycled into history books.
More information on the first part of the ride is available in cyclingben blog.
After going through some historical and business areas, the ride ended by a cafe by the Malacca riverside, a stone's throw from the clock tower.
Refreshment for everyone, self paid of course!

It was good team work with MC Norhisham who is ever natural with the microphone and Wahid and his team in preparing the booklet for CM and reporters for reference of reports, photos of previous rides and most importantly, the request for state assistance in making ECC's Melaka Heritage Mtb Jamboree a success. CM giving his speech and pledging RM5,000.00 to launch the club

A good effort to everyone who made the ride possible and participated in this historical event.
Melaka Boleh!! ECC Boleh!!
