Anggun City Fun Ride 2016

Anggun City is located at Bandar Anggun, Rawang a development by Hong Bee Land Development. This was my first time visiting this township and I guess this is part of the huge land bank owned by Hong Bee Land which was initially started with a joint effort with Hong Leong Group.
Thanks to Kiki Yong, Cikgu SC Chin & Cikgu Liliana Lee for organising this lovely event.
It was successfully handled despite a big turnout with an estimated of 250 cyclists.
It was not actually a leisure fun ride as it started off with a climb followed by a few more covering a distance of approximately 46km into areas like Bandar Country Homes, Kundang and Tasik Puteri. I would consider it as a good workout rather than a fun ride. Anyway I enjoyed it very much.
As usual SC Chin and Liliana Lee would meticulously plan the event with a group of volunteers whom were roped in to take care of the safety including with the assistance from the Police and St John Ambulance.
The weather was perfect except of a burning which was noted obviously during the ride.
Batu Arang was a coal mining town and also popular for its brick manufacturing, unfortunately all these are history now.
I took a detour and visited the morning market and it was such a busy market. I noted that there were also tourists at the market.
Some of the cyclists were seen having their breakfast in the village area.
I took this opportunity to meet some cycling friends whom I have not seen them for a while. It is undeniable that our cycling community is growing bigger and these days there are more events to choose to suit one's timing.
The first 100 participants were given free tee shirt coupled with free lunch and not forgetting a medal too. It's was simply awesome and a sure way to promote both cycling and Anggun City.
Bihun goreng with fried chicken was good and delicious.
The man on the motor bike was Cikgu SC Chin who is known for his good planning skill for event of such nature especially in the neighbour of Rawang. Well done Cik Gu!
I enjoyed visiting this heritage town of Batu Arang, it was a pity I could not find my way into the old brick factory. Batu Arang is such a vibrant town and colourful on a Sunday morning.

There were so other activities held on that day suach as a blood donation drive.
