Pedal for Peace is a 200km cycling event from 18 – 19 May 2013 comprising of 150 cyclists from Kota Kinabalu and Labuan. The expedition will start in Kota Kinabalu where 100 cyclists will journey down the west coast to Menumbok and board a ferry to Labuan to meet up with their 50 cycling counterparts. The entire group of 150 cyclists will then cycle around Labuan Island the following day.
The core element of this event is the preservation of peace which will be demonstrated through a token wreath laying ceremony at the Petagas War Memorial (Kota Kinabalu), Starcevich Memorial (Beaufort) and World War II Memorial (F.T. Labuan) respectively.
Pedal for Peace will end at the significant location that was built to honour peace and harmony for the future – Peace Park, Labuan.
A photography and poster competition prior to the event will be organized to raise awareness and advocate for peace. The images and artistic expressions produced by the participants will help encourage the viewers to appreciate the different ways we interpret peace – through the lens and the minds of our youth.
