KDF Millennium Ride

Held since 2014, the annual Kidney Dialysis Foundation (KDF) Millennium Ride is organised by Epic Cyclist, a local cycling group, and known as one of the most physically and mentally demanding rides in the region. Cyclists will endure at least 8 hours of cycling to complete a distance of 250km each day (over 4 days) through various types of terrain and weather conditions from Malaysia to Singapore.

“The Epic Cyclist Riders faced many challenges at the KDF Millennium Ride this year. There were plenty of steep rolling hills and on the second day, the cyclists rode 40km beyond 250km, making it the longest ride in a day ever. However, these challenges were nothing compared to the hardship that dialysis patients go through every day without choice. We are heartened to know that every drop of sweat and hard work that the Epic Riders have put in will help to benefit these needy patients,” said Mr Clifford Lee, founder of Epic Cyclist.

3 At a closing ceremony of the event on 18th January 2016, Chairman of KDF, Dr Gordon Ku, also expressed his thanks for the effort and hard work put in by Mr Lee, his team and the Epic Cyclists: “On this third occasion of the Millennium Ride, Mr Clifford Lee and his team of Epic Cyclists, a total of 60 of them covered the 1000km journey in 4 days.

They were accompanied by a crew of 14. This backbreaking ride started from Belum, a rainforest resort in the far north of Malaysia, down the East Coast, passing Kuala Besut, Cherating, Mersing and finally back to Singapore.

They braved personal discomfort and exhaustion, the weather and hazardous road conditions. To put it simply, they risked life and limb. All this to raise funds for KDF, to provide subsidised dialysis treatment for our patients.

I wish to register my heartfelt thanks to Mr Clifford Lee, his administrative team, and volunteers who have worked tirelessly through months of planning, route reconnaissance, trial rides, fundraising, and lastly completing the grueling journey.”

The third edition of the KDF Millennium Ride saw 60 cyclists, including 10 female cyclists and 63-year old Mr Peter Sng, successfully completing the 1000km-long journey and they each received a medal from Guest-of-Honour, Health Minister, Mr Gan Kim Yong at a closing ceremony to mark the occasion and celebrate KDF’s 20th Anniversary.
