Some hardy souls were awake early to hike up Penang Hill.

Rain thwarted their plan to hike up and take the funicular train back down. I don’t think anyone minded aborting the hike and proceeding to breakfast instead.

All too soon it was time to pack for the trip back to KL. Bicycle storerooms at Tien Hotel.Residence and Tien Terrace emptied. Amy’s truck was loaded.

Everyone was on the road or in the air by mid-afternoon. Except for Pai, Zulfa and I. Zulfa’s (aka Biker Chick) flight was on Monday morning. Pai and I had the ride back to Tanjung Malim ahead of us.

Let no one say that the R@SKLs only eat while cycling.

Everyone got home safely, despite the weather in Kuala Lumpur.

Pai had a meeting that afternoon. Zulfa and I explored the Tien Terrace neighbourhood. She found reasons to come back to Tien Terrace.

I am sure all the R@SKLs who made this trip look forward to coming back to Penang for more.

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.
