Ride Of Silence To Create Awareness Among Users Of Motorised Vehicles

GEORGE TOWN, May 14 (Bernama) -- The Penang G Cycling Club will be organising the 2014 Ride of Silence race on May 21, to commemorate those who died or suffered injuries while cycling on roads.

The race, held for the third time, is also aimed at creating awareness among those who use motorised vehicles, to be considerate about the safety of cyclists.

Organising chairman Jason Choong said those interested in participating need to be present at the New World Park at 7.30am on May 21 (Wed) with their bicycles and safety gear.

"Participants will not be required to pay entry fees or fill up forms. The only requirement is that participants should not exceed the 20km per hour speed limit or talk among themselves throughout the ride," he told reporters, here Wednesday.

He said the ride would start in the New World Park and pass through Jalan Burmah, Jalan Pangkor, Jalan Kelawei, Persiaran Gurney, Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah, Lebuh Farquhar and Jalan Penang before returning to the starting grid.

The organisers are expecting 200 participants while those interested can obtain more information from the website.
