Ipoh, Sunday 21st May 2023. Some 750 cyclists enjoyed a car-free Sunday morning, taking in the wonderful sights around Ipoh city and its suburbs. The cyclists were participants in the Isuzu Fun Ride 2023 organised by Weng Fatt Otomobil, one of Isuzu Malaysia’s authorized dealers in conjunction with the official opening of their new-look 3S Centre recently.
The event was flagged-off by the assemblyman for Pasir Pinji YB Goh See Hua together with CEO of Isuzu Malaysia Shunsuke Okazoe, COO Kenkichi Sogo and Director of Weng Fatt Otomobil Cheng Kah Yik who later joined the participants on a shorter 3km ride.
Speaking at the start of the event, YB Goh commended Isuzu Malaysia and Weng Fatt Otomobil for creating an event that celebrated environmentally-friendly activities while taking in the beauty and appeal that Ipoh had to offer.
“Events of this nature not only allow participants to develop a deeper appreciation of cities by admiring its charm at a leisurely pace, it is also a healthy and environmentally-friendly pursuit that is suitable for all levels of cycling enthusiasts. I hope that other organisations will also take the lead to create more of such activities that allow us to appreciate the cities we live in,” said YB Goh.
The Isuzu Fun Ride kicked off from Isuzu 3S facility on Jalan Raja Permaisuri Bainun taking a 40km route passing various landmarks of the city before winding its way back to the showroom where participants were treated to refreshments and an opportunity to take home fabulous prizes in a lucky draw contest.
“As a brand that places environment care as a key pillar of the business, Isuzu is always mindful of the need to develop socially-responsible and healthy pursuits. Events such as this Fun Ride provides us an opportunity to create family-based activities that are both fun and healthy in nature,” said Mr Okazoe.
The Isuzu Fun Ride in Ipoh will be the fodder for similar events in future with rides planned by Isuzu dealers in other major locations around the country. Stay tuned to announcements in pickuptruck.isuzu.net.my or https://www.facebook.com/ISUZU.DMax.Malaysia/.
