  1. This is really a good initiative and fun as well. Should be a great morning in bandaraya Ipoh without cars in the morning. Clean air and no traffic jam indeed haha.. great 🙂

  2. we need more car free days all over Malaysia these days because the air quality is getting too polluted

  3. We really need more events like this and not just in Ipoh but in every town whenever possible! If it’s not once a week, at least once a month! =)

  4. So many interesting activity they had for this car free on international women’s day. This car free should do it monthly at KL too to help to reduce the pollution… Lolz

  5. This is an awesome initiative. Hope there will be more care-free day and use more eco-friendly means of transportation. I adore biking, good for my legs 🙂
