Admittedly most of my Flipside group rides involve food. We have a list of restaurants and coffee shops that are on regular rotation.
Last Saturday we tried somewhere new. Mark (our expert food spotter) had noticed a particularly crowded restaurant during one of our previous rides through Rawang. We decided that would be our breakfast stop that morning.
It was very misty as we rode along the Guthrie Corridor Expressway towards the Lagong Toll Plaza.
About 50km / 31mi into the ride we arrived at the red awnings of Restoran Teratak Nogori.
Mark had been attracted by the sign advertising steamed nasi lemak. The nasi lemak was as good as advertised.
After we got back onto Jalan Rawang we took a little detour into the housing area bordering Templer Park. The road is much quieter there, and the views are nice too.
Our route back from Templer Park into Kuala Lumpur took us toward the junction of Jalan Sentul and Jalan Tun Razak. Right where our Bangsar Cycling Group buddy, Danial, has just revitalised the Born & Bread Cafe.
We had to stop there for a coffee and some cake.
The mist of the morning had long burnt off, and it was hot when we left the cafe.
To get back to where we had started our ride, we had to cut through Taman Tun Dr Ismail, popularly known as TTDI. Which happens to be the location of a good cendol stall. Given the temperature, a cendol stop was called for.
An excellent way to set us up for the last 15km / 9mi of a 100km / 62mi ride.
