Sunday, 20 Jan 2013 – About 5,000 people took part on Sunday and plans are afoot to raise the bar, begins with an ‘early bird’ registration drive for the OCBC Cycle Malaysia 2014 that will be held again next year from Jan 17 to 19.
Held at KLCC in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, the event kicked off with a 48km challenge covering four loops around some of the busiest roads that were closed to traffic.
This was followed by a 24km community ride that saw a higher number of participation by individuals, families and cycling clubs.
Cyclists from all over the country, including foreign participants from road bikes, mountain bikes and folding bikes took part in both categories. It was a fun and exciting event for all cyclists and believe everyone enjoyed the ride whether its 24km community ride or the 48km challenge.
The Blinder 1 is a high powered single LED light that pumps out 20 lumens of blinding front white light and 11 lumens at the rear. Being 100% waterproof and using its high powered surface mounted LED’s the Blinder 1 will ensure maximum visibility at over 500 metres.
With a burn time of over 2 hours in constant mode and up to 11 hours in eco flash mode this light will keep you lit well in to the night.
When the battery does eventually get low, the built in low-battery indicator will glow red to show the light need charging and then illuminate green when fully charged. Through using the lights inbuilt USB recharge system the light can be successfully charged from flat to full in just 2 and a half hours.
With a weight of only 15 grams, and using the simple in-built tool-less attachment, this light connects easily to handlebars, rear posts and frames of 22–32mm.

Brompton Bicycle Ltd has collaborated with Vic Lee, a designer from Clerkenwell, East London, to create a limited run of Bromptons, featuring a motif inspired by a love of London.
Brompton first collaborated with Vic in last Summer 2011 to create two hand-illustrated bikes for the male and female Brompton World Champions; this cooperation has developed into a collaboration on a limited run of gloss black S2Ls, to be decorated with an exclusive white decal before the bikes are given three further coatings of clear lacquer.
The designer said:
“I initially worked with Brompton on a one-off, hand-drawn design for the prize bikes for the 2011 Brompton World Championship. These got a lot of attention so we started to investigate if there was any way we could do something similar on slightly large scale. I have been creating this style of London-inspired schemes for a couple of years now; it is great to see this translated into the London Brompton.”
Along with the artwork on the main and front frames, the bikes come fitted with a limited edition vinyl graphic on the flap of the accompanying S Bag, also designed by Vic. The design has been further enhanced by the use of black mudguards and black leather Brooks grips and B17 saddle.
The bikes will also be supplied with a limited edition Vic Lee print (frame not provided), signed by Vic and not available elsewhere, along with a numbered certificate of authenticity. Only 500 London Bromptons will be built, along with 500 of the limited edition vinyl graphic flaps and 500 prints.
The full specification for the London Brompton is as follows:
S2L in gloss black
Vic Lee graphics
Black B17 saddle with copper rails
Black Brooks leather grips
S Bag set with limited edition S Bag flap, designed by Vic Lee
Limited edition Vic Lee print
