If you’re the kind of KLite who’s up early on a Sunday morning (and you’d be surprised — there are a lot of people like you) you might want to try coming down for the city’s Car-Free Morning programme.
Happening every first and third Sunday of each month, KL Car-Free Mornings are just that — City Hall clears up a 7km path in downtown KL, stretching from Dataran Merdeka to KLCC and back, for citizens to pretty much do whatever they want, as long as it doesn’t involve a petrol-powered motor.
The “morning” part in Car-Free Morning is pretty specific, though: the roads are only cleared from 7am to 9am, so if you’re thinking of going, go early. Everyone meets up in front of the DBKL building from 6am onwards, and if you’re lucky, you might get to kick off right next to Mayor Ahmad Phesal Talib, who cycles almost every Car-Free Morning.
The next one happens tomorrow morning — isn’t our timing great? You have just enough time to clear out your schedule today so you can sleep early and head out downtown tomorrow. See you there!
