Tour De Kuala Lumpur
Its was last Sunday that PK called me about this ride, i was so surprised to think that there is going to be a ride after the 2 day PD ride on Deepavali. They and another bunch of cyclist went off on a ride to PD using the Kajang way, i think it was with
James the Bak kut teh and gang, too bad i didnt know bout that if not i would have gone too, they stayed over at Port Dickson and ride back to KL the next, should be really fun but i found out last minute. Its ok la, many more rides to come.
Today is actually the 2nd day of Hari Raya and today is what I call the Tour De Kuala Lumpur, actually we celebrated Matt’s Bday the day before till 2am in Chili’s 1-Utama. Darn it. not enough sleep even knowing we have a ride the following day, I woke up with the sound of my phone ringing and i feel grogy to the fact that i was sitting on my bedside wondering what am i doing for nearly 2 mins.
Aiya dont think i want to go, but i said no no no, i got to do this ride even if it kills me, the phone ring that woke me up was Lawrance at my door step, I quickly changed, got downstairs, got my bike and loaded it into the MPV, Lawrance also said that he had a dream, the dream was that i told him the ride was canceled. HaHAHA
We started at Boon Foo today at 7.30, i think alot of people do not notice that they call BikePro’s outlet Boon Foo. I think his shop should be changed from BikePro to Boon Foo. Saw about 17 people ready with thier bikes, PK and Family was sitting down having morning breakfast, Teck Wai was all set with his gleaming CR1. Mac arrive soon also. Then the gang all came, Lim and Kimbeley Yap, Fu Zhen just woke up with his broadshorts, PK needed to fix his BB, but, alas i didnt bring my toolkit, but ahah.. he gave non other than the great Boon Foo a call to open up his shop ! mauhaha.
check out the picture above, practically the whole of KL was for us to ride on, there was only a few cars compare to the occasional gridlock jammed up bumper to bumper. Benny is the Far back with the blue Jersey, Kim2 (thats what i call her now) is the one with the purple and white jersey riding on a Felt F4C, nice red and good choice, (ngek ngek ngek) cause i riding a Felt oso ma. same colour like couple ngek ngek ngek (but later the BF kill me)
PK’s wife in the King of mountain Jersey, Kimbeley in that super gaya pose in the blue Jersey and Fu Zhen in Orange, i can see PK and his son up in front. oh if you guys know Valerie from Boon Foo, she was there too, i was surprised also. And this is us chilling half way thru the ride, Me and handsome lawrance on the right.
saw the sign board is says to Jln P Ramlee, Ampang, Raja Abdullah and T.A. Rahman. well didnt know what to do, so snap somemore pictures. the ride in the city was easy like a tour, superb weather to be doing a city tour.
we in a pack heading to Bukit Bintang to look for mamak to eat our Brunch.
The guy in Blue is Mac,well his name is too long so i call him Mac he is a out going, joviol and happy lad that love’s biking, I consider him to be hardcore cyclist, as in doing lots of cycling, he put me to shame la, after this ride he is going to do his RPM in Fitness First (not one but two class ok), he is eyeing on Kim and my bike cause he love FELT bikes also, hehe, I hope he gets one cause we can be FELT Team. See he even knows that FELT bikes are good. He took my bike for a test run and he instantly fell inlove with it. Hope you get your FELT pretty soon bro.
This is some tour group taking photos near KLCC, darn it, my phone resetted half way thru the ride, if not i would have taken the pictures of KLCC. KLCC concention center, etc..etc..nevermind, there are always more rides to come, going back we enroute to Sri Hartamas then Science center (where the tuesday group always does) i love the hills but today hill climb not much but it will do for now.
We pass Tugu Negara and saw a bus load of Japanese. I nearly smacked my bike right into the tour bus, wanted to take some pictures with those Jap girls but aiya i rode to fast into the hills.
before heading to Sri Hartamas, Teck Wai,Chin Ho, Kimbeley and Val was atttacking the hills so much that they forgot that there was a group behind, We were separated and we waited for them at the indoor tennis court before heading to Sri Hartamas. I think we better tell Boon Foo to stop selling those CR1′s cause its really to fast.
House in Bukit Tunku that is owned Sultan of Brunei, the Compound is so big you can build a football field in it, the house can double as a 100 room hotel. Now thats what I call money to spend.
I found this house on the left near Bukit Tunku rather interesting, if you look closely this guy/girl has good taste, it looks like a villa from Brazil or the Carribean, it has a infinity pool built and a few decks chair and a small little pool hut. The house is mostly glass
in this trip met alot of new faces and wonderful people. Every ride there are always new people to meet and talk to, so i hope you guys would get a road bike and join in. Check you guys out later.
Looking forward to the 100km Kuala Selangor Firefly ride, and the Proton Presidential Ride on the 19th November. The Bah Kut Teh Ride to Klang with Boon Foo, The Genting Ride, The Port Dickson with Matt and Gang, countless rides.
