Editor’s Note

FIGURES DON’T LIE – The official Lekas Highway Ride 2018 record states that there’ll be a total of 4,496 cyclists across all Categories on race day – 120km, 78km, 17km & 12km. The biggest group is the 78km Category with about 2,700 riders, and women riders makeup 10% of the total with just over 300. The 120km Category has about 1,400 total riders with only 7% or 100 are women cyclists.

FB_IMG_1534432706252

LADIES FIRST – Why are there much fewer female cyclists in general? Could it be because during childhood, more boys spent time outdoors, riding their bicycles, while girls stayed at home playing with their dolls? Or do women in general find cycling too laborious and not as fun as boys do? For sure, many women don’t like to spend much time under the hot sun unless they were sunbathing on the beach. Perhaps, some women find cycling on the roads too dangerous. Whatever the reasons, I give due respect to those minority women riders who are courageous and fit enough to take-part in these long rides, and hope to see more women participation in cycling.

LUCKY NO.3 – This will be my 3rd time riding the full 120km distance. My target average cycling speed is 25kph which means that I ought to reach the Finish Line (FL) by 1:00am. However, if I factor in time for brief water stops and fatigue, I will more realistically reach FL about 2:00am, way after the official programme has ended.

SLOW & STEADY – There’ll be many riders out there who will be attempting their first 120km distance, while other novice cyclists may be nervous about joining this prestigious race for the first time. Therefore, I have compiled below my Top 10 Tips For Endurance Cyclists for those who want to beat the cut-off time of 6.5 hours without too much pain & strain, ok?

Top 10 Tips For Endurance Cyclists

  1. Listen To Your Body
  2. Be Knowledgeable
  3. Be Very Prepared
  4. Ride Smart
  5. Stay Focused
  6. Keep Alert
  7. Enjoy The Journey
  8. Be Helpful
  9. Thank Your Host
  10. ⬅️Post Race Recovery
  1. LISTEN TO YOUR BODY : You must take heed of your body’s signals & vital signs, and not ignore them. If you’re feeling unwell or unsure of your fitness condition before the race, consult your doctor in advance. If during the race, you feel breathless, sick, dizzy or your muscles are cramp, stop cycling and only proceed if you can recover. If these symptoms persist, seek immediate medical assistance.

2. BE KNOWLEDGEABLE : Study the race guidebook and familiarise yourself with the timetable of race day activities. At the very least, you should know :- (a) Where are the parking zones; (b) What time you should arrive at race venue,     ( c) what time is flag off; ( d) Where is the information counter; and (e) What time are the cut-off times.

FB_IMG_1534169418428

3. BE VERY PREPARED : You must stay fully hydrated and energised before, during and after the race. This means that you must keep drinking water periodically, starting from race eve, and always make sure you refill your bottle at the water stations.

Similarly, carbo-load two hours or more before flag-off, and carry enough energy bars/gel to refuel during the long ride.

Furthermore, you must carry along a tyre repair kit and a handheld pump in case of a punctured tube.

4. RIDE SMART : Don’t ride too fast in the beginning, and try to maintain a steady pace from start to finish. Don’t go below 25 kph, but if you do, make sure you make up for it later during a flatter or downhill portion. Don’t spend more than 5 minutes at the water stations – drink, refill and get out fast.

5. STAY FOCUSED : It’s easy to let your mind wander off into space, and lose focus in these long rides when there’s nothing much to see at night. You can stay focused by listening to upbeat music, or try to chase the cyclist in front of you. Always think of positive thoughts to stay motivated.

6. KEEP ALERT : Take a power nap in the afternoon, so you won’t be tired and sleepy during the later part of the night ride. You could eat some herbal mints or eat eat energy gel with caffeine to stay awake.

7. ENJOY THE JOURNEY : Don’t always keep tracking your mileage, and worrying about meeting the cut-off times because these thoughts can demotivate you. Focus, instead on your cycling technique and how to ride most efficiently. At the same time, enjoy the smooth and car-free highway.

8. BE HELPFUL : If you see other riders in distress, ask them, “Do you need any help?”. As part of the cycling community, we must support each other as much as possible because we can go further as a team and sticking together.

9. THANK YOUR HOST : After finishing your ride, don’t forget to thank your host and volunteers who have worked hard to give all the Participants an unforgettable experience. If you have time, give your useful feedback to the organising committee, so they’ll know what they did or didn’t do right for future improvements.

10. POST RACE RECOVERY : After such an arduous ride, your body needs to recover, so make sure you keep drinking water and electrolytes plus eat nutritious meals with high protein content. On the next day, go for a short and easy recovery ride or a physio massage to eliminate the lactic acid byproduct build up in your body…and soon the body aches & soreness will disappear!

The LAUNCH Of GCE Duathlon 2018 & PRESS CONFERENCE

The LAUNCH Of GCE Duathlon 2018 & PRESS CONFERENCE

Editor’s Note

The LAUNCH Of GCE Duathlon 2018 & PRESS CONFERENCE was held at KL Gateway Mall on 9th August 2018.

rbtoz

 

The launch was organised by GCE Duathlon 2018 Co-Organisers PROLINTAS & GoSportz, and the main guest speakers were Dato’ Mohammad Azlan Abdullah, Group Chief Executive Officer, PROLINTAS, and Mr Albertt Leong, Race Director of GoSportz.

IMG_20180809_170625_840

This is the FIRST TIME ever for PROLINTAS to fully close Guthrie Corridor Expressway (GCE) for a sporting event, and many athletes in the cycling, running and triathlon communities are excited to be the FIRST BATCH and test their physical strength and endurance on this magnificent highway route on the auspicious Malaysia Day.

IMG_20180816_092109_836

Fortunately, PROLINTAS has partnered with GoSportz, for this inaugural GCE Duathlon 2018, who will bring onboard the technical expertise required to effectively execute a great race for all the participants. In particular, GoSportz has been the organiser of the popular Lekas Highway Ride for the past 5 years; a premier night cycling extravaganza on another fully closed highway which has steadily grown to 5,000 riders in 2018. With such an impressive track record for managing high profile sports events, and with the support of key event partners, we can expect another SMASH HIT by GoSportz & Friends.

rbt

With many concerns about public ROAD SAFETY for cyclists and runners, it is wonderful that more and more Highway Concessionaires & Owners are recognising the popularity of mass participation sports and closing their respective highways to hold such sporting events without any presence of motorised vehicles, even at the expense of foregoing their lucrative toll collection revenue on race day….

Lekas Highway Ride 2018 – race kit collection

IMG_20180811_140626_455Lekas Highway Ride 2018 – race kit collection

Editor’s Note

I collected my race kit from Atria Mall on Saturday lunch time, and it only took me 10 minutes to receive my race bib number, attractive cycling jersey and goodie bag containing a complimentary water bottle, a bandana and the essential race programme and map.

 

Then, it was time to browse at the Cycling & Sports Carnival next to the collection counters. There were a good array of cycling and sports gears and accessories on display at the vendors booth, and there were so many items on offer that it was near impossible to walk away without buying something -whether it was a cycling attire, helmet, gloves, socks, energy gels/bars, supplements, and much more.

IMG_20180812_140842_376

IMG_20180811_220408_294

Being the Title Sponsors, Shimano & RHB owned the biggest booths. Moreover, it was good to see that this carnival was not only limited to the race participants, but it was also opened to the general public.

A special edition tour presented by Executive Producers Dato’ Sri G Radakrishnan and Yahna SG, together with Producers Kenneth Lee and Victor Pilipovich, The Moscow Circus is an action-packed, 8-month 10-city Malaysian tour which guarantees audiences an unforgettable time while witnessing a variety of dazzling and jaw dropping circus acts, specially flown in all the way from Russia.

Editor’s Note

As far I can recall this will be the FIRST RUN to be held at Citta Mall, and looking at the route map most of the run will take place around the perimeter of the prestigious Saujana Golf & Country Club and its surrounding affluent neighborhood where the roads are wide and partially shaded with many trees lining the quiet road.

To make this run worthwhile, I STRONGLY recommend you pick up the early bird rates of RM55 & RM45 for the 10km & 5km respectively.

Caution, Slow Rider Takes On Lekas Highway!

Caution, Slow Rider Takes On Lekas Highway!

rbt

Editor’s Note

Today is the race kit collection for RHB Shimano Lekas Highway Ride 2018 (see below for details), and the numbers of participants have grown significantly to reach 5,000 riders for this upcoming 4th continuous night edition.

The 120km category is expected to challenge the best riders, and if last year is anything to go by, there will invariably be several truckloads of cyclists who are expected to DNF (Did Not Finish) for underestimating the long route.

Fear not because no matter what happens on race night, there will be no losers because a bad day cycling outdoor in the countryside is still better than any good day in the work office.

What really amazes me about Malaysia’s Only Highway Night Ride is witnessing the glorious sight of thousands of enthusiastic cyclists, from all walks of life, converging on Lekas Highway to do what they love – cycling.

One such rider who is set to make his second appearance at Lekas Highway Ride 2018 is the affable Faizal Sohaimi, and I was glad to catch-up with Faizal and find-out more about his deep bond with cycling, and why he enjoys this particular Lekas Highway night ride….

START-UP: About 4 years ago, Faizal Sohaimi invested in a foldable bicycle to commute to work. Since then, his cycling interest has expanded to touring, participating in many cycling events like RHB Shimano Lekas Highway Ride, and when he’s not riding, Faizal spends his time building or upgrading his bikes himself. The fact that Faizal has converted one of his rooms into his personal “bike cave” speaks volumes about his commitment to, and passion for Cycling.

SELF-RELIANT: Faizal has attended a bike repair workshop before, in order to learn how to repair and maintain his bicycles in case of breakdowns during long touring trips. However, when the bike repair jobs are too difficult or they require specialised tools, Faizal will visit his master bike mechanic, Akmal of The Basikal shop in Bangsar for technical assistance.

MENTAL MECHANIC: Faizal loves to constantly tinker with his bicycles, and he gets a big kick out of reassembling vintage steel bikes and perhaps, give them a new lease of life with some modern upgrades.

“I like working with steel frames because you can bend them in different directions whereas carbon frames are built to withstand force only from certain angles,” explained Faizal.

FIND-OUT IF Faizal’s passion for cycling is just a wasteful obsession or is it the perfect outlet to  channel his energy, creativity and skills for greater good.

FINAL NOTE
