SEPANG: Startup entreprenuer Natalie Sit used her love for cyling to instill a feeling of togetherness in her young, multi-racial team.

Acestar founder and chief executive officer Sit said that her frequent cycling trips with her team has fostered better personal connections amongst the staff.

“We have people of different faiths and cultures working in Acestar and cycling on weekends was the best way that we could get people to work together,” she said, adding that her team would be taking part in the upcoming Ride For Malaysia event.

Sit has even taken a group of her staff to Japan for a cycling expedition. The 12-strong bicycle convoy eventually developed confidence and trust in each other.

“That is why the team is excited to take part in Ride For Malaysia and join thousands of other Malaysians in supprting this cycling event that promotes unity and patriotism,” she added.

Sit feels that cycling is a good way to keep team spirit burning bright.

“It is a universal language by itself. No matter if you come from different backgrounds, when you start cycling, everyone speaks the same language,” she said.

Ride for Malaysia will flag off at 6.30 am on July 30 at Sunsuria City. There is a Fun Ride of 30km and a Family Ride of 5.5km. For more info and registration see: http://sites.thestar.com.my/rideformalaysia
