    With regards to non-competitive cycling, PCC has just started registration for their annual Interstate Ride. It's a 3-day ride, go as fast or as slow as you want type ride for only RM350, including accomodation and some meals. This year we head from Kajang to Kuantan, covering four states: Selangor, Negeri Sembilan, Johor and Pahang.

    Hi beebubs,

    the pcc website is here: http://pcc-cycling.freeservers.com/index.htmlhttp://pcc-cycling.freeservers.com/index.html

    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.

    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.

    Not sure about an LBS in Kuantan, I live in KL and that's a good 3 hour drive away. If you're looking for a bike shop to ship your bike too, there are a few in KL that i you can probably ship to. The one I normally go to is Joo Ngan Son or The Bike Boutique. I'll try and get their email addresses for you if you want.

    moving to Kuantan...

    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.

    Go to the Highlands . We stayed around Fraser's Hill. The air was fresh and cool. & we Did see some cyclists up there.The climbing would be incredible..... It would be fun to ride underneath the brush and have the monkeys throw coconuts at ya.. They are mean little buggers. Scampering atop our tin roof, they kept us awake all night.

    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".

    Cycling Contest On New Expressway

    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.

    Good luck with your endeavor bro. Perhaps a better place would be to publicise it on Facebook? Sounds like a great idea!
