BCG Putrajaya Ride

22 of us met at the crack of dawn outside the Rasa Seri Alamanda restaurant in Putrajaya to ride a 45km / 28mi or so circuit around Putrajaya, the administrative capital of Malaysia.

We rode a smaller anti-clockwise loop followed by a second anti-clockwise loop that took us through Cyberjaya.

The early part of the ride was under overcast skies.  So there was no real need for the arm screens.

The pace was relaxed, and we all made sure the group stayed together.

By the time we got back to the Rasa Seri Alamanda restaurant, the sun was out.

We filled up with drinks before half the group headed out to do a second circuit.

Arm screens were much more of a necessity on the second circuit.  As were regular breaks to allow everyone to regroup.

Our last stop was at Shaftsbury Square in Cyberjaya, where we had our pick between a 7-Eleven and a couple of 99 Speedmarts.  Or a Chatime, as was the choice for some.

Safwan Siddiq produced an excellent video of the ride:

Everyone had a good time.  I’ll definitely be doing this ride with BCG again.
