Hundreds of bicycles provided to participants of the recent 1Malaysia Patriotic Cycle went missing after the entrants rode them home at the end of the event, leaving the organisers embarrassed.

It is not immediately known how many of the 5,000 bicycles went missing but apparently, even the bicycle used by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has disappeared.

 A participant, who did not wish to be named, said: "It was horrible as the participants were all rushing to take the bikes home. It is so unbecoming and reflects poorly on Malaysians."

"The Youth and Sports Ministry was the biggest loser as many of their bicycles were carted away.

  1. Typical Malaysian...Kadang - kadang kita hanya mampu tersenyum melihat event yang diatur begini punya pelbagai agenda yang akhirnya membawa kemudaratan kepada penganjur. Tahniah!!
