古迹脚车行 26/4/2009 Sunday ( Photo upload later)

GEORGE TOWN: The state government’s monthly cycling event within the city, now into its third edition, will be extended to several villages beginning June.
Expedition leader, Tanjung Bungah assemblyman Teh Yee Cheu, said the event would be extended to villages in Balik Pulau and Bukit Mertajam to give more people a chance to participate.
On tour: The 100 cyclists who participated in the ‘Heritage Experience On Wheels’ expedition yesterday passing by the Penang High Court building.
“Besides promoting heritage sites in George Town through our ‘Heritage Experience on Wheels’ cycling expedition, we also want to showcase the beautiful scenery and padi fields in the villages.
“The theme will be ‘Kampung Rides’,” he said at the third monthly cycling event at Upper Penang Road yesterday.
The drizzle at the start of the event at 8.30am did not deter 100 cyclists from taking part in the two-hour expedition, held every last Sunday of the month.
This time around, the cyclists stopped at seven heritage sites where a tour guide explained the history of the buildings in detail.
The seven sites were E&O Hotel, Convent Light Street, Church Street Pier, Penang Islamic Museum, Goddess of Mercy Temple, St George’s Church and the Hainan Association and Temple.
Teh said the first two events, over a 6km route, attracted a total of 160 cyclists.
“We had planned to extend the route to 14km.
“However, since the trishaw rider who was ferrying the tour guide got tired, we cut short the route to 11km,” he added.
