Starting from the opposite bank of Kinta Riverfront Hotel at 8am, 150 cyclists participated in the morning ride that took them via St Michael’s School through town to Jalan Raja Dr Nazrin Shah, Jalan Tun Dr Ismail, Padang Polo, Jalan Hospital and return via Taman DR Seenivasagam.
According to KRI President Choong Him Shoong, KRI recently launched their Ipoh City Tour Bike Station Riverwalk outlet and has bicycles for rent to tour the city.
The outlet also has ten biking routes for the visitor to choose, ranging from scenic, heritage and orchard routes.
Incidentally KRI Cycling Team had last July produced a booklet entitled ‘Perak Bike Ride’, which was launched together with Tourism Malaysia Perak branch and MBI, which identifies some worthy cycling routes in the state.
Hence, it is noteworthy that the bike station is another addition towards positively promoting tourism in the state.
