It has been a long time since I pulled on a pair of baggy shorts and a t-shirt, put platform pedals on a bike and and rode the city streets.
I headed out into the evening rush hour. The four-wheeled traffic was hardly moving along Jalan Tun Razak and Jalan Ampang Hilir. It was bumper-to-bumper, sometimes three or four lanes wide, until I got to the end of Jalan Kerja Air Lama, where it turns into Jalan 1.
Jalan 1 loops around the Kelab Darul Ehsan golf course. The golf course bumps up against southern end of the Titiwangsa Range. As I rode around Jalan 1 I was at the very eastern edge of the city. I had fairways and putting greens to my left, and jungle to my right. Click on the street and satellite maps to open zoomable versions in new windows.
As I rode around the golf course I was not surprised to see monkeys along the side of the road. I was surprised to see lots of wild boar on the jungle side of the road.
The wild boar were such a novelty that I did the loop a second time so I could see them again.
Then it was back into the traffic to get home. A wild ride in more ways than one.
