Last month a group of us rode to Port Dickson and stayed at Paul’s apartment. One month on and seven of us were planning to invade Paul’s again.
We rode down on Friday 31st. It was Hari Raya Haji. The roads were fairly quiet as the majority of people who wanted to balik kampung had made their drives a day or two before.
Our route was the same as it was in June. Starting from where I live and making the short detour to Sungai Pelek to ride the ferry over the Sungai Sepang. Then ride to the Seremban KTM station the next morning to catch a train back to KL.
The planned 6:00 am start was washed away by the rain. We were in Yut Kee eating breakfast at 7:30 am. It was still drizzling after 9:00 am when we rode past the PETRONAS Twin Towers on our way to the MAJU Expressway.
We weren’t on MEX long before we had to stop. There was some broken glass on the road shoulder which may have caused this puncture.
Not surprisingly, most restaurants and coffee shops were closed because of the Hari Raya Haji holiday. Including our regular eating places in Dengkil. We ended up at the McDonald’s in Kota Warisan for some food and coffees.
The rain had stopped and we had cool overcast conditions for most of the way from Kota Warisan to Port Dickson.
This time the ferry at Sungai Pelek was running.
It is a short float across the Sungai Sepang.
Followed by a quick ride through mangroves to get to the N4 at Kampung India.
We had one more stop to fix a flat tire before we got to Port Dickson.
Port Dickson was heaving with people. We wanted a late lunch. Most places had people outside queueing to get in. We settled for PappaRich. Which wasn’t too full. However, the restaurant was understaffed, so it took an hour from when this snap was taken for our food to arrive.
Eight more kilometres of riding through holiday traffic and we were in Paul’s apartment.
Suffice to say a good time was had by all that evening.
The next day we started riding to Seremban at about 7:00 am.
It is just under 40km from The Regency Tanjung Tuan Resort in Port Dickson to the Seremban station. No punctures on the way 👍🏻.
Time to put on our masks. Wearing masks on public transport and in public places became mandatory this day.
We were at the station in plenty of time for the 9:06 am train.
AL was comfortable in her slippers ⬆️.
I got comfortable in my Furoshikis.
It was a short hop from Bank Negara station to Gavel for breakfast.
A BIG breakfast!
When are we riding to Port Dickson again?
