A Scenic Ride to Morib

Restoran Al-Arefin Bistro in the Sanctuary Mall, Bandar Rimbayu, is fast becoming a popular meeting spot for cyclists riding to Jenjarom, Jugra, Morib and beyond. There is lots of free parking in front of the restaurant. It opens very early in the morning. Service is quick. And it has clean restrooms.

Nine of us set off from there for a scenic ride to Morib.

“Scenic” as in avoiding main roads as far as possible in favour of a more roundabout route through kampungs and countryside.

The secondary roads have far less traffic on them and there is often more to see. One off-the-beaten-track section just north of Morib runs right along the seashore, with waves at high tide lapping against the edge of the road.

We hit our usual nasi lemak stall at Morib beach.

We retraced our path back to the Sanctuary Mall. The only flat tire of the ride occurred during our return trip.

Note that the rider who had the puncture is not in this photograph!

The only downside to the morning was that it got very hot. It was 35ºC / 95ºF at 11.00am and it got a few degrees hotter before we got back to Restoran Al-Arefin Bistro.

But with views like this who can complain?

About alchemyrider

I left Malaysia in 2008 as a non-cyclist. I am back home now with three road bikes and all the paraphernalia that goes with being addicted to cycling.
