The much anticipated Century Ride Malaysia 2011 was officially launched during a colourful yet simple ceremony at Tower Regency, Ipoh recently. The organising committee, led by the President of Kelab Roadrunners Ipoh, Chong Him Shoong and his team, were present to receive cash donations and gifts from sponsors.
The Perak government was the biggest sponsor with a donation of RM20,000. Other donors who were also co-sponsors include Ipoh City Council, Le Velo, My Gopeng Resort, Garmin, Milo, Energizer and 100 Plus. More than a thousand riders are expected to partake in this cycling extravaganza. Foreign participation will cap the 500 margin with Singaporeans making the largest number. The event is slated on Sunday, July 17 commencing at 7 am at Dataran Ipoh. An entry fee of RM100 is charged for registration before July 1 and RM150 after that.
