BENEFITS AND CHALLENGES OF CYCLING TO WORK -An interview by BFM 89.9 Radio.
Thank you BFM 89.9 Radio for giving me this opportunity.
"It might seem like an impossible inconvenience to ride to and fro to work and to see clients every day, especially with our weather and traffic, but there are some who do and enjoy the health and environmental benefits. Azizan Abdul Aziz, cycling enthusiast, tells us more."
CycleFriday Cycling Culture Ride is about promoting bicycling as a lifestyle. Not as a sporting or recreational event. Just ride ordinary bicycles and wear your daily clothes. Leave behind all those cycling tights and gears and sport bikes. Road bikes, Mountain bikes and Fixies are not allowed to join the ride. Cycling helmets are not allowed too. You can ride in style too with your ordinary bicycles and daily clothes. This kind of image that I want to project during the CycleFriday Bicycle Culture Ride. Ride in style. (Source: Ekinibi Arif)
CycleFriday is not a cycling group. Cyclefriday initially was to encourage Malaysians to cycle to work at least once a week i.e on Friday. However with the recent growing interest in cycling, we need to do transformation on the objective i.e to advocate the use of bicycle as an everyday transport.
