KOTA KINABALU: More than a hundred Sabahans skated through Kota Kinabalu City on June 21 joining in a worldwide celebration of Go Skateboarding Day to promote skateboarding as a healthy activity.
On Go Skateboarding Day, skateboarders from around the world get together to celebrate one of the most influential activities in the world by dropping all plans to go skateboarding.
Most skateboarders do this every day of their lives, but this is just one more reason to forget their television, computer and video games and go skateboarding.
Games, competitions and loads of fun activities were also organized at the Jungle Skate Park in Likas. It didn’t matter if you were 10 or 99, everyone was invited!
Another event that really caught everyone’s attention was “Ride of Silence.” Hundreds gathered to cycle from Kota Kinabalu City to Alam Mesra and back on June 26 to remember those who have been injured or lost their lives while cycling.
