KUANTAN 160 is an open road cycling event covering 160km around the city of Kuantan in the East Coast of Malaysia. The inaugural event was held in March 2012 organized by a group of cycling enthusiasts from Kuantan. Later the Ministry of Tourism & Culture (the Ministry of Tourism) Pahang made Kuantan 160 its official event and was fully supported by the Pahang State Government. The first event managed to attract 850 local and international riders. In 2014 more than 1900 cyclists participated with more than 400 international riders.
Initially we were thinking of hiring 3rd party vendor to handle our registration but unlike last year, this time we expect the cash sponsorship will be minimal. Therefore we decided to manage our own registration just like always. For the same reason we also increase the fee a bit to match the current century ride events all over Malaysia these days. The early bird price is RM120 and the offer is valid till 15th March 2015. Beyond that, the fee shall be at RM150. We encourage riders to register early because this will help us in all preparation. We accept Paypal, or credit card payment via PayPal. You do not need PayPal account to register, you can use your credit card at PayPal portal or you can also bankin to Mr Azam Fauzi’s account, who is still in charge of the registration. However the system allow you up to 48 hours to confirm your registration before it remove your name from registration. You can reach him at [email protected]
We also accept team registration. But for each online registration, only 10 names can be submitted. This is to prevent time-out by the browser. You will be helping us a lot by using the online form. For that we thank you.
This is the original KUANTAN160 format and it is NOT a race. The ride will be on the 7th June 2015 (Sunday). Participants will be challenging themselves to complete the grueling 160km with fellow friends. The ride is paced only at the first few kilometers (rolling). Timing chip will be provided.
