Salina Osman was a newbie cyclist when she purchased her first road bicycle in October, during the movement control order (MCO). But in the last seven months, she's improved her bike handling skills and has gone on to conquer some of the steepest hills around the Klang Valley.

The mother of three has clocked in over a thousand kilometres on her bicycle. It includes a 45km ride from Sg Besar in Sabak Bernam to Teluk Intan, a hilly cycle up Genting Peras in Hulu Langat, as well as Pahang’s Genting Sempah which tests one's riding skills and endurance.
