Waking up at 5:15am this morning was with ease knowing that you are going to be part of a eventful day which Penangites have been waiting for. Penang being first in what they do, the state government has launch a "Car Free Day" on the 11th Dec 2011, first in Malaysia. The street where most of the banks are, Beach Street will be closed for un-motorized vehicles from the morning until 5:00pm on Sundays.
Again, Penang CBCBC members have gathered again to show support to the state government for a good initiative, keeping Penang greener with lesser pollution emitted by motorized vehicles.
The event was joined by cyclists with all types of specifications, from kiddy bikes to old heritage bicycles. All in all, approximately 5,000 cyclists of all ages join the event. Here are so photos taken of the event and the climb to station 84 of Penang Hill by the gang in the same morning after the Car Free Day 10km fun ride.
