Are you ready to BoF this 20th?
A group of us including MPPP director Yew Tung Siang, Penang State Councillor Dr Lim Mah Hui, Sg Pinang YB Lim, regular bike commuter Arnold and a sprinkle of insignificant commuters like myself will be cycling to work every Friday from Persiaran Karpal to Gama and from there to our respective work places.
The whole idea is to kickstart the idea of alternative mode of commuting building up to the launching pf the *Penang Bike share* project in June/July.
We are hopeful that similar groups of BoF commuting cyclists could be started from Air Itam, Tg Bungah, Bayan Baru and other suburbs of Georgetown.
Anyone interested to start a group can PM me directly and I am more than glad to take you through the motion.
Let us BF every Friday.....Let's start cycle to work every Friday starting from 20th March. Make use of our dedicated lane.
Meet at 745 am Karpal Singh drive every Friday and let's pedal to Gama bicycle hub.. IJM has agreed to allow cyclists to park their car free of charge at Persiaran Karpal and if you feel hassled to bring your own bicycle, Penang Bike Share company will provide bicycles that you can use (foc).
After work Bike Share people will be stationed at Gama bicycle Hub from 530 pm to 630 pm and you can cycle back to get your car at Persiaran Karpal. For novice cyclisits we will try to arrange experienced bike marshals to cycle with you at staggered time 530pm...545pm... ..6pm
See you there.....Let's commit 3 months and see how things go.
