Following the success of the Ipoh City Nite Ride in May, Ipoh City Council has decided to hold a similar event named Ipoh City Fun Ride on Sunday, September 15, with the Malaysian Interaction Culture Association as co-organiser.
“The purpose is to promote Ipoh as a tourist destination. Participants can enjoy the beautiful sceneries along the route,” said mayor Dato’ Haji Roshidi Hashim during a soft launch ceremony held at the Ipoh City Council recently.
The cycling route covers 50 km, starting and ending at MBI Square (Dataran MBI). Participation fee is RM60 per person, goodies, spectacles and limited-edition jerseys await all participants.
Those interested can take part either individually or as a group. The group with the most number of entries can win RM1000, with the first and second runners-up getting RM500 and RM300, respectively.
Expected to draw up to 2000 contestants, the Ipoh City Fun Ride has already received enquiries from Singapore, Thailand and China.
Participants can register at the council’s lobby counter beginning Thursday, August 15. Registration ends on Sunday, September 8.
