Vélocity Café

Chon introduced me to an alternative starting point for the ride to the Sungai Tekala Recreational Park.  Every other time I have ridden to that park, I have started from the police station at Batu 18, Hulu Langat.

This time seven of us met at the Challenger Sports Centre in Taman Dagang Permai.  17 km / 10 mi away from Batu 18.  More significantly, there was 150 m / 490 ft of climbing over 3.2 km / 2 mi to overcome almost from the start.

There was more climbing between Batu 18 and the recreational park.

By the time we made it over the longer 4.2 km / 2.6 mi return climb at 11am we needed a cold drink or two.

Fortunately for us the Vélocity Café had opened last October in The Challenger Sports Centre.  A cycling-themed café catering for the rider who regularly do the Jalan Hulu Langat climb.

There is a large outdoor seating area in the front.

And a larger air-conditioned room with a variety of seating.

You order from a fairly extensive menu and pay for your order at the counter at the back of the café.

I like the tags they use to identify whom ordered what.

I ordered a variety of cold drinks:  An Iced Latte, a Passion Fusion, and a Banana Milk.  All were excellent.

We all eyed the food that other patrons had ordered.  The Big Breakfast in particular looked good.

While enjoying your drinks and meal, you can look at the bicycles for sale.

The Vélocity Café was very nice,  I think we will be back.

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.
