Anak Pulau Pinang started this petition to Dato' Ar. Yew Tung Seang (Datuk Bandar) and

Sungai Ara & Relau (Bayan Lepas neighborhoods) need a 'Riverside Library & Bicycle Park'

One of the primary objectives for the proposed riverside library & bicycle park is to provide an environment to get more children exposed to cycling as an healthy outdoor activity and foster a sense that physical activity can be “fun” (and there is more to having “fun” besides sitting in front of a television or computer). Thus, It shall hereby provide a place for families to ride bikes & reading together at riverside.

In summary, the goal is to foster a love of reading and encourage community members to hang out to exercise in the park. We community wish the riverside library to be the cultural and learning center for the community, encouraging the joy and wonder of reading, the wisdom of diverse ideas, and the power of lifelong learning as there are many MNC & electronics supply chain factories' bosses & employees staying nearby.

The proposed location is currently a state's under-utilized VACANT land)

It is highly visible and this visibility will promote responsible use by the surrounding community. It shall include features for all skill levels and incorporate the concept of progression whereas beginners can ride on appropriate level features and progress to higher skill level features as they improve their technique. The park should be designed as unidirectional (one way) so that all users travel in the same direction. This design will minimize conflict between riders and potential for collision is minimized thus maximizing safety. Not just a leisurely bike trail, the proposal includes: jumps, drops, waves wall, rocky & sandy way, free ride areas..etc flow trails similar to those at Peppermint Bike Park in Thailand

Our proposal should be excellent opportunities to create a community park atmosphere while
engaging the already high population of local users who enjoy recreating on a bicycle. Taking into account user flow around the park and the interaction with other amenities will also create a safe, manageable atmosphere for all park users to enjoy their respective pursuits.

The park will have informational signage which highlight safety of a biker. With low maintenance & greenery treescape next to riverside (under state government land status), we expect this will protect the environment it also provides shade which is more comfortable to ride in.
