i think sometimes we have to think that not everything that govt built is related to self-impotance or cronism. sometimes we just have too

imho, i don't think malaysia can implement this " lets cycle to work" thingy due to our climate. It's so damn hot in malaysia. you'll be sweating all your way down to your office. but i think trying to persuade people to use lrt or monorail instead is more relevant compared to bicycle.

but we can try to ask student who lives inside the campus to use bicycle when they're going to the class or anywhere around the campus. I believe inside the university, the distance is much more shorter and the student can bear with the hot weather just for a few minutes. i've seen many students in other countries cycle to their universities and i just can't seen why malaysian can't do it.

Yeah, that's what being promoted in my university right now.....this practice is further contributed by the petrol price hike.

Actually we can... if all the trees aren't felled during development work that is... Talking about preserving the nature...

Here's one crazy idea to alleviate the "heat" problem - build covered cycling paths!

It can be covered naturally by trees too, if not certain built up sections can simply have the standard covered zinc type roofs..

Zinc, I think the heat is going to get even worse with it They conduct heat and trap the rising hot air

the way they develop our road system just disable us to cycle in KL. Too extensive and long distance.

this is a video that i watch in class - the bus rapid transit in bogota, columbia. i wonder rapid KL can develop something like this. i used to take rapid kl from bandar utama to kl sentral and i takes me 1 hour, and the return journey is 1.5 hour.

the idea sounds nice but,

don't believe we have the space in KL. In addition, it is a dusty area . hence , cycling in this condition would not be good .Secondly, there is a chance , that some may cycle at main roads which would make them more prone to accidents
