Cycling events became more popular especially more and more cycling events organized by group such as G Club http://www.gclub.com.my/ and car free day campaign (every Sunday at Beach Street) by State Government. The state government campaign 'Cleaner and Greener Penang' have encouraged more Penangites ride on bicycles to the road. This is a good sign and efforts for reducing carbon emission and fight global warming.
Another factor that drives Penang to achieve Cleaner and Greener city is the Street Art attractions around George Town. Many visitors just rented a bicycle and ride to the places where they can stop by and take photograph with the Street Art along the roads.
