Hyatt Regency Kinabalu to launch 'Ride of Silence' today


19th May, 2017


KOTA KINABALU: To further promote the concept of living a healthy and safe lifestyle, Hyatt Regency Kinabalu will launch its ‘Ride of Silence’ event, today.

Its Manager, Thor Gervasi said that the unique night ride is an annual movement to raise awareness among drivers of motor vehicles that cyclist also have right on public roadways.

“Additionally, it is also to honour the lives of cyclist who have been killed or injured on the road,” he said yesterday. The event will consist of a 10 km slow-paced ride of no more than 15 kph on public roads.

Accompanied by police, the ride will kick start from the hotel and then pass through Tanjung Lipat up to Universiti Malaysia Sabah before riders turn back to the starting point.

Participants must provide their own bike and riding gear. Those who are bringing minors are reminded to mind their children’s safety.

Registration will be open at 6:30 pm and the ride to start at 8pm. It is expected to finish by 9pm. More than 400 participants are expected.

“This is really just to bring an awareness and not a competition,” said Gervasi.

The hotel is sponsoring 10 sports bikes, four for the city police bike patrol unit for use on night patrol to tighten the security of the city, and six for hotel guests to use during the hotel’s upcoming daily cycling tour.

Bikes for the police patrol will be handed over to before the start of ‘Ride of Silence’.

Hyatt Regency Kinabalu is also working closely with Kota Kinabalu City Hall to promote a complimentary bicycle ride, which will be introduced to the public soon.
