KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak yesterday joined about 10,000 cyclists in the fifth KL Car-Free Morning Campaign in an effort to reduce carbon emission in the capital.

Donning cycling apparel, the prime minister cycled together with the participants for three km through Jalan Bukit Bintang, Jalan P Ramlee, Jalan Raja Laut, Jalan Sultan Ismail, Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman, Jalan Dang Wangi and Jalan Ampang starting at 7am.

Apart from cycling, the participants, some with their families, rode on skateboards or jogged along roads that were kept free from traffic for the monthly event. Shortly after he finished the ride, Najib mingled with local and foreign participants before he left.

Meanwhile, Kuala Lumpur mayor Datuk Seri Ahmad Phesal Talib said the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) was willing to hold the campaign twice a month if there were overwhelming requests from city dwellers instead of merely on the first Sunday of every month. Bernama
