Cycling for Charity in Sarawak
28 women calling themselves Bicycle Buddies from the UK and Singapore are currently in Kuching today to cycle in the Sarawak rainforest for charity.
The group began their cycling adventure from 22 to 28 September 2018 covering a distance of 50km to 60km per day passing through Annah Rais Longhouse in Padawan, Seniawan bazaar, Kubah National Park and ended in Lundu bazaar.
“Streets Against Sepsis” is their charity slogan of choice, dedicated to raising money for sepsis survivors in the UK and to raise awareness on sepsis symptoms, to protect the community and save lives.
Sepsis is a life-threatening condition that arises when the body’s response to infection causes injury to its own tissue and organs.
Mel Greenway and Yvonne Konieczna, their leader who have been cycling together for over 15 years, Bicycle Buddies are not professional cyclists but enjoy exploring unique destinations and getting to know different cultures.
“However, there is another element to our ride; the route must be tough because they are raising money for their chosen charities,” said Mel and Yvonne said in a joint statement.
“We are very grateful to our tour manager JC Chua and his team for giving us the opportunity to have an amazing experience and are looking forward to what promises to be not only a challenging ride but also an incredible adventure,” they said.
With members ranging from 25 to 70 years old, the Bicycle Buddies are a diverse set of ladies like-minded for their love of cycling and passion for charity, and are looking forward to their cycling adventure.
Sarawak Tourism Board is in support to the publicity of this charity cycling tour as well as marketing and promotion in the UK.
