                                   Ernest Launches Century Ride 2010
                                            IPOH ECHO 101                        

 The launching of Century Ride 2010 was formally declared on Thursday, July 8, at Tower Regency Hotel Ipoh. It was officiated by Organising Chairman, Ernest Balasingam and witnessed by members of the working committee and the President of Kelab Roadrunners Ipoh, Chong Him Shoong. Ernest told reporters that a larger number of participants would partake in this year’s outing. “We reckon some 600 riders will congregate at Bukit Kinding Resort, Tg Rambutan.” This home-grown cycling extravaganza is into its fourth edition and, judging from feedback, is gaining prominence with a large number of foreign entries coming from Singapore, Thailand and even Japan. “They simply love the challenge and the route we fixed,” said Ernest. There are more sponsors this year than previous. Therefore, there will be more prizes for everyone. Prizes for lucky draws too are aplenty.

“Support from Perakeans is essential to make this a calendar event in the state,” said Chong. The state government and the tourism department are behind the organisers. It will be flagged off on Sunday, August 1 at 7 a.m. in front of Bukit Kinding Resort, Tg Rambutan. Those who finish the 160-km ride within the time limit of 7 hrs 30 mins will be rewarded with a finisher’s medal, a T-shirt and an achievement certificate.
