Through the Paddy Fields

Amy suggested a ride to the paddy fields around Sekinchan. To keep the ride length reasonable, we met at Bestari Jaya. Which meant a 50km or so drive from Kuala Lumpur for the fourteen of us.

It was misty during the 17km ride along Jalan Raja Musa.

The first 25km was through palm oil plantations.

We got our first glimpse of rice paddies after we made the right turn onto Jalan Sekembang at the Seri Tiram Jaya rice mill. The rest of the way to Sekinchan was through rice paddies, shown in pale green below.

The narrow rectilinear roads separating the rice paddies are excellent for cycling on.

We had breakfast in Sekinchan. Then stopped on the way back through the rice paddies for a group photograph.

We were back at Bestari Jaya by 11:30 am. Thankful for the overcast sky throughout the ride.

I can see doing this ride again soon.

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.
