Solo Saturday

Posted on

My regular Saturday riding buddies had other things to do yesterday morning.  So I rolled out of the D’Bayu car park in Bukit Jelutong on my own just as it was getting light.  There wasn’t a lot of color in the sky as the sun came up, despite all the clouds.

I got to the motorcycle lane alongside the Guthrie Corridor Expressway before 7am.  Not surprisingly the motorcycle lane was very quiet.  Riding alone always gives me the opportunity to notice things that I miss while on group rides.

Roadside Color

While I was the only cyclist on the motorcycle lane that early in the morning, this ride is a popular one.  The lane is well surfaced and relatively wide.  Most of the tunnels under the on and off ramps are well-lit, although there are a couple that provide an unnecessary  moment of concern as you pass from bright sunlight into darkness.  Especially if the tunnel comes immediately after a sharp turn.

I took the slightly longer route to Kampung Sri Kundang.  Instead of taking the Jalan Kuala Selangor exit I rode further down the Guthrie Corridor Expressway to the KL – Kuala Selangor Highway interchange.  This option means riding about 3 km / 2 mi along the KL – Kuala Selangor Expressway.  That expressway, also known as the LATAR Expressway, does not have a motorcycle lane, but the  road shoulder is wide enough to accommodate cyclists.

I left the highway at Kundang Lakes Golf Club.

From there it is a short 3 km / 2 mi to Sharif Roti Canai.  Breakfast there is the reason for riding this route.

I left Malaysia in 2008 as a non-cyclist. I am back home now with two road bikes and all the paraphernalia that goes with being addicted to cycling.
