    Photos - West Malaysia - Morib - Tanjung Sepat ride

    Hello folks! Michelle and I had completed a 40km ride to a coastal fishing village called Tanjung Sepat in Selangor, our homestate which is roughly about 1hr 35minutes drive from where we live..

    The trunk roads were pretty clear so, it was an enjoyable ride. Here are some photos on our ride..



    We started the day in Morib, a popular public beach..



    The ride is about 17km and would take about 45-minutes..



    A quiet country road..



    Trailing the lead rider - Mrs Samo..



    Riding into the sun..

    Our first destination was an edible mushroom cultivation farm..



    This enterprising venture offers homestay facilities for tourists..



    Another view of the mushroom cultivation centre..



    Here's a shot of a worker sorting out oyster mushrooms for drying..

    Here's a shot of the beach.. Pretty dirty place for a picnic..



    The 'love' bridge up close..



    The town traffic..



    Most of the residents here commute on electric bicycles..



    Which are easily available..

    We've worked out a good appetite during the ride and had a late breakfast in this shop..



    A cook preparing our meals..



    Fish Kut Teh or fish fillet and paste in preserved vegetable broth..



    A typical Malaysian Chinese breakfast.. Hahah!



    The food was good!

    maaaan I think with all the trips you've done you could've cycled right through malaysia by now. Oh yeah bak kut teh is good!

    also surprised with all the nice racks both of you have on your bikes you carry the backpacks. I'd strap it onto my bike by now cause I know it's hot in Malaysia my back would be like I fell in a pool. hahah!

    Yes, also surprised at the lack of panniers. The roads look pretty smooth!
