My R@SKL History Part 7

Posted on

Kuala Lumpur to Penang: Day 1

Seven of us did a train plus bike trip to Penang in October.

Kuala Lumpur to Penang: Day 2

This trip included drawing lots to see who would drive the support vehicle. You can guess who lost on this day.

Kuala Lumpur to Penang: Day 3

We had a bit of an adventure on our ride from Taiping to Penang.

Pantai Merdeka with the R@SKLs

Twenty other R@SKLs drove or flew to the island. Our Penangite friends led a morning ride up the Kedah coast.

TCCP 2019

The annual CFAL ride was renamed Toward Cycling City Penang for 2019. It was the same round-island route with two new extensions.

The Germans visit Malaysia Part 1

The big event of 2019 was our German friends visiting Malaysia. They had been excellent hosts when some R@SKLs rode with them in 2018. It was time to reciprocate.

Food on Friday after they had checked in to the hotel. A ride to Jugra on Saturday.

A city ride and more food on Sunday.

The Germans visit Malaysia Part 2

Monday was sightseeing in Melaka and a party hosted by LY.

The main event started on Tuesday. The first leg was a ride from Tanjung Malim to Simpang Pulai. TH organised a very nice dinner in Ipoh.

The real ride was the next day. Simpang Pulai to Brinchang. With a barbecue dinner and lots of wine, again thanks to TH.

The Germans visit Malaysia Part 3

We visited the Boh tea plantation in the morning of Day Seven. The Germans and some R@SKLs then drove to Penang. The other R@SKLs headed back to KL.

The evening ended with more local delights for the Germans.

The sights, sounds and tastes of Penang on Day Eight.

The Germans’ last ride in Penang was around the island. The ride included an extended stop at The Hard Rock Cafe and a dip in the sea.

The final day was all about getting our guests safely onto their flights home.

Through the Paddy Fields

The Germans were all safely back home. We rode through the paddy fields of Sekinchan to close out November.

Bentong – Raub Golden Ride V2

This was our last organised ride. I.e. a ride with an entry fee, closed roads etc.

Where has this guy gone?

A Half Dozen to Port Dickson and Back

The last ride for 2019 was an overnight jaunt to Port Dickson and back.

That is a wrap for 2019.

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.
