Super-Jon’s 230km bike ride from Lumut to Subang Jaya (5) – calling for more cyclists!!

On 24th June 2019, Jon Tham will cycle from Lumut to SS18 in Subang Jaya to, once again, raise funds for AnimalCare!!

In 2014, Jon raised RM5,000 for us by running 50km. In 2015, he raised a whopping RM10,000 by running 68km and in 2016, he and his team raised RM500 for us at the Viper Challenge!

This year….Jon is going to cycle a formidable distance of 230km on his electric bike.

Please see below for updates!!

We met up today at Little Wonders Cafe for brunch and I passed MAC the owl to Jon. Mac is the mascot for the ride (I sewed Mac myself!).

We are now inviting other cyclists to join the ride too! The more, the merrier!  So if you’d like to join in the ride (it can be from Lumut, or anywhere halfway, or quarterway), please do let me know (email

Jon will travel to Lumut a day before to participate in a half-day triathlon, then perform a “pilgrimage” to Pangkor where his father’s ashes lay, for this he trained a lot with his bike and amazon exercise balls which are great to strength his core. The next day (24th June 2019), Jon will start the bike ride at 6am from Lumut. He will make stops at various towns and take photos with Mac at certain landmarks.

A few of us with join Jon on his last leg, either from somewhere in Kesas or from SS14. This would just be a mini ride, but now, we are asking serious cyclists if they would like to join Jon on either the entire 230km ride or half, or quarter!

We have decided that the finishing point will be at Little Wonders Cafe along SS18/6. And we will have the celebratory dinner right after that!

Edward, the proprietor of Little Wonders, who is also a fitness instructor, was very kind to offer Jon preparatory workout sessions as well. And through the conversation today, I learnt that the following foods are recommended for energy: Dark chocolate (yay!!), bananas, peanut butter, eggs, coconut water – mostly carbs since so much energy is needed for the long-distance ride.
