“Participants of all ages are welcome, however, children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by their parents or guardians.

“Those aged 13 to 18 must have their parents’ permission to participate,” he said.

The entry fee is RM75 per person, with each cyclist receiving a complimentary cycling jersey.
