- 2 October 2018: we just got a confirmation mail that MikeBikes is one of the finalists for the MDBC Innovation & Sustainability Awards 2018! On 12 October will the winner be announced by a jury. Chief judge will be H.E. Karin Mössenlechner, Ambassador, Embassy of the Kingdom of The Netherlands.
- Collecting empty bottles: This is in line with MikeBikes' commitment to promote and contribute to a cleaner and more liveable Kuala Lumpur. Mikebikes is recycling all the water bottles provided to its tourists. These empty water bottles are to be sent to Tzu Chi Foundation in Kuala Lumpur, which MikeBikes is collaborating with, to be recycled. The proceeds are to be donated to the Foundation's charity funds. Not only to protect the environment (as the plastic bottles will take up 450 years to be decomposed in the landfills), these empty bottles collected by Mikebikes will be turned into charity funds to help the poor and the needy, and eventually it can also be turned into blankets in aid of various disaster victims!
- On 18 August 2018, the Dutch Association of Malaysia organized in close collaboration with The Dutch Embassy and Tourism Melaka a bicycle tour along the Dutch heritage in Melaka. Who was present? Yes, MikeBikes! We delivered the bikes and so both speakers, the Dutch Embassador, Karin Mössenlechner and Chief Minister of Melaka, Hon. Adly bin Zajari, had fun on the bikes form MikeBikes after their speech. Everyone happy! The entire organization by the NLV went flawlessly under a nice warm sun. They have created a nice drone video Melaka Heritage Cycling Trail that gives a good impression of this beautiful day.
