Farewell Ride

What: Cycle to Ulu Yam from Batu Caves (59.4km)
When: 07.06.2009 (Sun), 7.30am - 11.30am

A free-lady riding with a just-married man. She rode with a touring bike named Buck and wore like touring, the helmet is non-certified's one and the pair of glove is totally out of shape. He rode with his road bike and wore like racing with clipped-shoe, arm-warmer, perfect helmet and perfect glove. Sigh... this is the difference of a free-lady vs a married-man!



It was a hazzy morning, sun kisses at 10am onwards. We rode in tortoise speed at all the uphills (7-12km/hr) but fast and furious at all the downhills (45-60km/hr). We cycled the same route 2 or 3 times, everytime also suffering a lot because of the no-mercy long uphill. No talking just huff and puff.



The journey always rewarded us with YUMMY loh-mee ;) This time we not entering Ulu Yam Lama but had a try at a restaurant near the market. The taste was fabulous, we added 2 half-boiled kampong eggs and he had a set of toast, mouth watering...

This going to be my last ride riding with my cycling buddy for a long period, perhaps the last one for Buck's wheels rolling on Malaysia's road in 2009. Either it will be resting at home or will be traveling with me to New Zealand next week... can't decide, kind of worry because it going to be sub-10 degree celsius at noon and sub-5 at night. But without Buck, I'm sure I'll feel lonely...
