Saturday October 1st this year will see hundreds of cyclists and biking fans make for Melaka to enjoy the ECC Burung Hantu Ride 2011 - participant numbers are in fact hoped to exceed 2,000 this year.

With that in mind, leading online hotel room comparator is advising travelers that getting a Melaka city centre hotel could be more difficult than usual due to higher demand.

The format of the event is a highly organised night cycling ride through the streets and areas around Melaka itself. The purpose of the ECC Burung Hantu Ride 2011 is to encourage locals, both adults and kids, to think about cycling as an alternative mode of transportation. The event will drive home the message that biking is not just good for the environment but is jolly good fun as well!

The ECC Burung Hantu Ride 2011 will kick off on the start line at the Universiti Teknikal Malaysia in Melaka and participants can expect a pretty competitive field of experienced riders - as well as some just joining in for the experience.

Lek Boonlert, marketing head of says, "An event with a difference, the ECC Burung Hantu Ride 2011 will see hundreds of cycling fans heading into Melaka in October and requiring hotel rooms."
