About OCBC Cycle Malaysia
OCBC Cycle Malaysia will come to Kuala Lumpur again this January – Join us for The Ride Of Your Life!
Event owner and organizer Spectrum Worldwide, and title sponsor OCBC Bank, will provide Malaysia with an exciting cycling experience in Kuala Lumpur once again this January.
It is Malaysia’s only mass participation cycling event on closed, public roads in Kuala Lumpur which caters to all level of cyclists. OCBC Cycle Malaysia 2013 intends to reach out to the entire family with a new venue and a range of categories so “Anyone Can Ride!” Everyone is encouraged to participate in this weekend cycling experience and visit the pre/post-ride carnival events.
OCBC Cycle Malaysia 2013 will provide something for everyone; serious cyclists can prove themselves in The Challenge, a demanding 48km ride. More leisurely is The Community Ride (24km) for family and friends, as well as children’s rides and a kid’s carnival. For the first time there will also be a special category for Foldies with The Foldies Community Ride (24km).
In October 2011, cycling mania swept through Kuala Lumpur for the first time, as thousands of cyclists got on their bikes and rode through the heart of the city in the inaugural OCBC Cycle Malaysia. More than 3,500 participants registered for the three-day cycling extravaganza, the largest mass-participation cycling event to be held on closed roads in Malaysia.
“The response to the first-ever OCBC Cycle Malaysia has been phenomenal,” said Chris Robb, Managing Director of Spectrum Worldwide – the event owners and organizers – following the inaugural event in 2011. “Our vision was to provide a cycling platform that catered to cyclists of all skill levels, to encourage a wholesome and healthier lifestyle through cycling. To be the first community cycling event on closed roads in Kuala Lumpur – allowing cyclists to ride freely without having to worry about traffic – is a unique privilege. The past two days have truly exemplified the cycling spirit of Malaysia and we are all looking forward to OCBC Cycle Malaysia 2013.”
