‘Car-Free Morning’ will be a regular thing in Kuching

The Kuching North City Commission (DBKU) is toying with the idea to make the ‘Car-Free Morning’ a regular thing in the city.

This comes after it ran a ‘test-run’ last Sunday, which was considered by many to be successful.

According to a news article by The Borneo Post, DBKU is looking at the possibility to do the event once or maybe twice a month.

However, on the official DBKU page (seen below), it was noted that the event will be held monthly, on the first Sunday of every month.

Anyway, last Sunday, the ‘Car-Free Morning’ ran from 5.30AM to 9.30AM.

It saw DBKU closing several main roads in the city at Jalan Tun Abang Haji Openg, Jalan Pearl and Jalan Barrack to allow the public to use the roads for jogging, cycling and walking.

Aside from reducing Kuching’s carbon footprint, such event is also hoped to encourage city folks to stay active and engage in healthy activities.

A positive move

The event in my opinion is something positive, given the increasing number of cyclist in Kuching.

Not only does it promote healthy activities, it also allows cyclist especially, to use the main roads for cycling safely as Kuching lacks proper cycling facilities.

That said, if you are looking for other activities to do in Kuching, check out the list of activities here.
