Approximate 300 cyclists took part Yellow Ride aka fun ride in conjunction with LTDL Stage 8 from Pekan to Chukai, Kemaman. 95% were fixies and I have seen only 5 MTB around during the ride. We rode for 15km after flag off at finishing line LTDL, round Chukai town, passing by Hospital, went thru Bukit Mentok and came back to where we started at Padang Astaka. This is the first cycling event in Kemaman I have joined since left former employer in Klang Valley and work here for new employer in early February 2012.
...awaiting flag off
...some more fixies
Hardly see MTB in Chukai and it seem cycling MTB odd things to do here, if multiply the 5 MTB that took part in Yellow Ride with factor of 5, may I conclude that only 25 MTBs are active in Kemaman. Hopefully the number would grow for the sake of their own health and active lifestyle.
