scroll down and you'll find details for the ride. hurry though, they're only taking 150 riders this year due to logistics, and i think there are about 20 slots left.
Hi Mate... have tried your link, but invalid... do you have their hompage etc??? Sorry for being a pain..
beebubs, that was their homepage. i just clicked on it and it works. let me try again.
anyway, i think all slots have been filled but you can still try your luck. also, you can subscribe to their newsletter to get information on weekly rides, etc.
I'm moving to Kuantan from the states and looking for a local bike shop. I'm triathlete, but also want to get into moutain biking. I'd also like to find a shop to ship my bike too, since I'm over the airline's luggage limit.
kinda like your idea. i am just not sure whether many can afford the time these days. most seems so busy with their lives. i live in Kajang. where are U located by the way. i very much like to explore your idea
A decent bike needs very little major maintenance work. Most LBS in other states refuse to do maintenance work on bikes. To those small shops in small towns, their solutions to many problems are changing faulty or out of adjustment parts. Me, I try to salvage anything that I can. Nothing is thrown away unless they are truly beyond repair. I myself an old cro-moly Marin 7speed MTB. Bought it almost a junk from an "exchange&mart" equivalent just because i like the frame. spent some bucks changing major parts making it whole again. now it runs very sweet on tarmac with 1.50 Panaracer rubbers. in fact it is now my commuting bike which clocks on average 35km/day. when I do go for that ride to Putrajaya I do a total of 70-80 km in one day of use.
one suggestion to those new to cycling, get an old frame, preferably a LeRun or equivalent and have a bike built from that utilising 7-speed shimano freehubs, decent crankset + sealed bearings BB and a good chain. The ride using those components is a breeze without having to break the bank. The total outlay should be a lot less that RM1k inclusive of a set of decent rubbers.
Hi peeps , I'm planning to get a 2nd hand hybrid bike (complete) , do you guys have any idea that I can possibly find a good shop in PJ area ? Or any of you are letting go your bike ?

I wonder too, after such long silence, whether renomael managed to get a hybrid?
yeah,,,fixie is starting to make an inroad in local cycling community...
but me and gang still ride old steel 7-speedster... that is good enuff for our occasional ride to Putrajaya. Pity the rides are not often enough

Staying in KL ... to enjoy the cool fresh air can still go riding at some of the small hilly out-skirt. Otherwise ... get used to enjoy the "sweat it out".

My cycling enthusiast friend tells me that this is the right place to ask. Would any cycling club be keen to stage a cycling contest on a new expressway scheduled to open in June 2011. This is the LATAR Expressway, a 33 km dual carriageway expressway linking Kuala Lumpur (Templer's Park) to Kuala Selangor. I would be pleased to hear from any club which would be keen to stage it with us during the opening month. We would be happy to provide the cash prizes to make it an event that sees a big crowd coming. Of course, the expressway will come for free. Do share my enquiry with the clubs. I would like to get this up on the ride calendar to introduce the new LATAR Expressway pronto pronto.
obviously there is a growing biking community in KL. Just need to get organised I wonder if there is a Folding bike club too?
