Photos - Riding a foldie in Malacca, Malaysia

Still on the subject of riding folding bikes. My wife and I made a trip to Malacca in early November last year to ride our bikes. Really fun as you get to see a lot of this historical city on two wheels. I use a Canon Powershot G12 to record our ride..



We started early, at 6:00am



Quite a scene from where we parked our car..



The Stadhuys area is open to pedestrians and cyclists only



Quite an easy ride..



At the A Famosa ruins..



My wife taking some photos..
