Kayuhan Merdeka Jasin: What makes it so special?


Every year, we look forward to celebrating Hari Kemerdekaan (Independence Day) and Malaysia Day. In addition to it being a public holiday, enthusiastic cyclists would take this golden opportunity to explore places by biking or get a thrill out of riding with friends on these special days.

Malaysia is assuredly a beautiful country to cycle around. While cycling in itself has amazing benefits, biking with a bunch of friends, especially with a purpose, increases the value of each of those points.

Hari Kemerdekaan and Malaysia Day are just around the corner. What better way to celebrate the nation’s 61 years of independence and establishment of the Malaysian federation with everyone else who shares a common interest? If you haven’t had a plan, Kayuhan Merdeka Jasin could be considered on your to-do list!

But what makes it so special?

1. Kayuhan Merdeka is organized by the same organizer as Kayuhan Negaraku.

Kayuhan Negaraku has been favoured by many people where two editions were held in the year 2017. Having successfully promoted unity through the event, Kayuhan Merdeka similarly aims to develop a positive and strong community identity and strengthen national unity. The togetherness created through cycling has highly been encouraged and promoted over the years. Like cycling, it helps us to learn from each other’s culture and bring them together, albeit coming from different cultural backgrounds.

2. Kayuhan Merdeka is a non-competitive event.

Kayuhan Merdeka Jasin is a fun ride event. Not having any competitive element in it, participants will be fully enjoying the day, be it biking in a group or with family makes for a more delightful and meaningful ride. Additionally, the total distance of Kayuhan Merdeka is 35km, a just-nice mileage for cyclists who simply want to have fun, at the same time, make new friends and create amazing moments to remember.

3. Kayuhan Merdeka will be held in conjunction with Independence Day and Malaysia Day.

The Independence Day celebration is a glorious and prestigious annual event with different themes and programmes held during the auspicious month. Besides that, Malaysia Day falls just 16 days after Hari Kemerdekaan, Kayuhan Merdeka Jasin will be a remarkable day to make great memories.

4. Kayuhan Merdeka will take you around Jasin, Melaka.
