U-SchoS’ recently organized a cycling event named “Life ● Cycle – Cycle for A Better Life” at Taman Botani Negara Shah Alam on the 7th March 2015. This said event is to portray the concept of go green, go nature as well as healthy lifestyle through cycling. The event also aims to raise the awareness among the students of UCSI University on the responsibilities as a citizen of the Earth.

“Life ● Cycle – Cycle for A Better Life” was participated by 70 students from UCSI University KL Campus. There are 14 teams in total, in which one team formed by 5 people.

The event activities were designed with challenges for both mental and physical. Besides that, the event is promoting concept of ‘go green’ with recyclable materials being used throughout the entire activities, such as gunny sacks, aluminum cans, plastic bottles etc. The participants travelled with bicycle in the botany park. At the same time, they are assigned a mission, which was collecting 6 types of recyclable materials prepared by solving the clues within the time given. Due to the large scaled landscape in the Taman Botani Negara Shah Alam, the participants would have to plan strategically and work as a team in order to complete the mission. There were flags found along the way, which contributes bonus points to participants as if they collected the flags. The team who managed to collect all 6 types of recyclable materials by successfully solving the clues and accumulated the highest bonus point by collecting the bonus flags within the time given would be the champion of the race.
