PICKING up cycling is easier than finding a safe spot to cycle with your friends.

Kelana Jaya parliamentary liaison officer Ong Chong Swen said more residents in her area had shown interest in the sport as it was suitable for all ages.

Cycling is slowly becoming an accepted hobby in places like Subang Jaya and this is a positive sign.

“If people cycle to Taipan from their houses instead of driving there, it will definitely be able to ease the present traffic congestion in the area,” said Ong, adding that local councils should provide cycling track and light up the the areas as well for night use.

For a start her office is supporting this weekend’s USJ14 1Malaysia Cycling Expedition which is organised by Kelab Rekreasi USJ 14 and SK Datuk Onn Jaafar USJ15.

The event, first of its kind by the club in Subang Jaya, would see participants being flagged off from the Sekolah Wawasan USJ15 Complex where cyclists will pass through Putra Heights and Bukit Lanchong before returning to the school grounds.

We want to encourage more youngsters to take up outdoor activities like cycling and perhaps be a stepping stone to nurture new talents.

One may end up being a national cyclist one day,” she said.

The event to be held on March 18 will begin with registration at 6.30am followed by the flagging-off an hour later.

Kelab Rekreasi USJ14 chairman Abdul Halim Abdul Aziz said the club intends to attract more youngsters too.

 

Instead of hanging out at malls why not come over and join us for a day of fun,” he said adding that bicycle products and clinics will also take place at the complex on the same day.

He urged particpants to be at the complex early to register as there will be a lucky draw later in the day.

The club, he said, was anticipating some 1,000 cyclists to show up on Sunday. Entrance is free. The event is open to individuals from above seven-years of age.

For details call Halim (019-338 3030) or Saiful Bahruddin (011-15726268)
