This was the first time the city blocked 4KM route within the city center from 7AM to 11AM for cycling competition and leisure cyclists.

It will be great if Kuala Lumpur can follow George Town to make every Sunday a carfree day.

We met Airasia team at the Dang Wangi, I would expect their wear red jersey, but as long as it tight uniform, that is good enough to be Airasia. The team looks great with high spirit.

It has been a fun morning to see many supporters come out with friends and family members. Feel good to sweat off 100 calories (to take in more food in the nearby mamak store that cost me 500 calories).
