As we slowly recover from the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, more people are now returning to work in offices which has caused huge congestion both on the roads and on our public transport.

Following the increase in traffic, Malaysians have begun looking for alternatives for their daily commutes.

A Malaysian recently shared a post on Twitter about how his friend managed to cycle to Parliament to attend a meeting.

“He just proved that it’s possible. So now I wanna challenge any MPs out there to do the same. Easy way to show off your fitness.”

He went on to tag the Twitter accounts of a couple of MPs to challenge them to follow suit.

Speaking to WORLD OF BUZZ, the friend who runs Bike Commute KL, a social media page promoting urban cycling, said that as a reference, politicians overseas in countries such as Denmark, Netherlands, UK, ride bikes sometimes to set an example to their citizens.

“In Malaysia, the car has also become a status symbol. (But) I think (that) when a leader cycles to work and if there is a greater presence of people cycling to work, it is possible to over turn that impression.”

Malaysians think that it may cause more harm than good

The post has gone viral and currently sits on over 1,970 likes and 761 shares at the time of writing. Malaysians were divided on their stance with only a handful of users agreeing that MPs should try cycling to work to reduce their car usage.

However, some users believe that it would cause more problems than benefits.

“Don’t do it because later on they’d be more roads closed because of their escorts. More people will be stuck in the jam,” said a user.

Others shared the same belief that if our MPs were to cycle to work, it would cause more harm than good as roads would have to be blocked due to their police escorts.

What is your stance on it? Should MPs cycle to work?
