Once again Cibubur Cycling Community (CCC) organized a cycling event in cooperation with Bank Mandiri and Citra Gran Cibubur on June 20th, at Citra Gran Cibubur housing complex. The theme of this event was “Go Cycling and Go Green”.
It was attended by more than 1500 cyclist from Cibubur district and from various places around Jakarta. There were 2 route set up for this event, a 5 kilometers on road for family fun bike, and a 14 kilometers off-road for cross country riders. So many children and ladies participated and they were so many smiles among them. I’m glad to see that moment. Indeed, this event was intended for fun. Their smiles showed that they had that fun.
Raynia Atmadja (Delta FM broadcaster) guide the event as the MC, and the guest star was the singer Opie Andaresta. There were another performances from Dangdut artists.
