GEORGE TOWN: A group of 22 visually impaired people accomplished what many folks could not do by cycling 160km from the island to Arau in Perlis within a day.

Riding on tandem bicycles behind volunteers, the trainees left the St Nicholas Home for the Blind in Jalan Bagan Jermal here at about 4.30am yesterday and arrived in Perlis after some 14 hours of cycling.
