With the theme “healthy living” the participants cycled for 60km beginning from the campus here at 8pm to Putrajaya and back to the campus. It was flagged off by Deputy Vice Chancellor (Students and Alumni Affairs), Prof Ir Dr Othman A. Karim.
All the participants were briefed on the finer points of good cycling by President of the Kajang Municipal Council, Dato' Hasan Nawawi Abu Rahman who some years ago embarked on a solo cycle around the world expedition.
Director of the KASIH programme, Encik Akmal Hisham Mishanisaid the programme is aimed at bringing cycle enthusiasts together while also getting donations for charity.
The collection will be handed over to the Anak Warisan Alam Foundation (YAWA).
