Earth Hour celebrated with a massive ride

Nearly 500 cyclists took to the streets of George Town, Penang to celebrate Earth Hour 2012. Cyclists came with variety of bicycles gathered at Straits Quay, Tanjung Tokong around 7:00pm.

The event started at 7:40pm and the sight was overwhelming with lights flashing red, yellow and blue. It looked like a river of lights filling the road ahead.

From Straits Quay, the convoy had to negotiate heavy traffic along the way because it was a Saturday evening and Penangites are all out for a great time in town.

The cyclists finally reached Han Chiang High School about 15km kilometers from the starting point and a small ceremony to switch off the lights at the high school indoor stadium was done in conjunction of Earth Hour 2012 event.

The event was organized by G Club.  Here are some photos courtesy of Ronnie Tan (G Club).
