As the streets in Penang become increasingly congested, bicycles are making a comeback. As more and more Penangites pedal around, the quiet cycling revolution is getting noticed in the media.
Despite the dangers on the street to cyclists and the occasionally sweltering heat, not a few people believe pedalling around is the way of the future.
And the future begins now! See this report in the Malaysian Insider. (Thanks to blog reader Tua Kee for the link.)
At the last round-Penang Island cycling event, some 3500 people took part in the campaign for a cycling lane.
Hopefully, even the Mat Rempits will turn to bicycles one day!
