Nite Riding - PCC

My first night ride together with the Pedalphile Cycling Club group was quite an enjoyable outing. First and foremost, they are a bunch of very considerate bunch of people who looks out for newbie or beginners like me who has never ridden more then 10km. Secondly, riding in a group with them, they do warn u in advance of impending potholes and rocks which demonstrate somewhat their ethics and consideration for teamwork. Not wanting to slow them down, I had trained up for 1 month at Kiara to build up my srength and stamina.

Our rounds starts from TTDI near IBM Plaza and down to NPE Pencala Link, going up the NPE Pencala Link to Hartamas and going straight to Pusat Sains Negara. We then climb up the hill towards Medan Damansara and then pass Manulife to circle Bukit Damansara and back to Medan Damansara. I think we did that twice before climbing a long hill near Manulife (Jalan Beringin - i think) towards the Damansara School and ending up back in Pusat Sains. We finish the journey going down from Pusat Sains to Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club before coming back to TTDI. I suspect, the journey must be close to 25 km.

Though I had a babysitter checking that I am not left behind, i am some what pleased as I am not the last in the group although this is my first time out. We started at 8:30pm and arrived back at about 10:00pm. If someone was to ask me 6 months ago to do this, I would call them crazy.

[azlina] Progress!, The road ahead is still far ;). Although I have reduced my waist from 42 inch to 35, I need to loose another 3 inch. (at the waist that is)

Speedo? Lycra u mean, thats my second skin in the Gym as the bike shorts that I wear are made of that.

Six pack bod? Well, i'd hate to plant 6 heineken cans on my tummy. Not healthy ;)

Sze said...

hah i saw paedophile too. come on, they could've come up with cyclopsychos or spokesblokes or something that doesn't invoke images of panting men with mullets...

The Editor said...

[Sze] Knowing u guys, nothing will satisfy nor correct ur view of man panting, I cud be calling the group peddlers and you guys will still relate to drug dealers ;).

Well, some train to be cradles snatchers ;) though
