City Ride with a Difference

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.

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.
