This year’s annual National Day night fun ride organised by the Ipoh City Council attracted some one thousand cycling enthusiasts, including VVIPs, led by His Royal Highness Sultan of Perak Sultan Nazrin Shah and HRH Tuanku Zara Salim.
Flagged off at Dataran Ipoh in front of the Ipoh City Council building, the cyclists undertook a 20km route which saw them riding to the Lost World of Tambun and back. The VIP fun ride, though, was a shorter itinerary of 8km.
All types of bicycles were used and safety helmets, compulsory. The air of merriment made the ride look like a bicycle festival.
Fifty lucky draw prizes awaited cyclists. Up for grabs included a 50in television set, bicycles, smartphones, household electrical appliances and hampers.
This cycling event was a prelude to the Merdeka celebration at the field in front of the Ipoh City Council. The countdown to Merdeka wrapped up with a fireworks display.
