Photos - KL City Charity Ride
Hey folks! Michelle and I took part at a charity ride recently. It was organised by Cycling Malaysia Magazine for the Sport Toto Malaysia National Charity Foundation.
We took the train to the city with our bikes and rode for 23km around Kuala Lumpur's City Centre.. Here are some photos from our ride..
We woke up at 05:00am in the morning and spent some quality time with our kids before heading out to the train station..
Our gurl seems to be very enthusiastic because she thought she could tag along, but there were no Husky sled race in the city.. hahah!

The LRT links most of Kuala Lumpur's urban area to the city centre..

Its early Sunday morning, so the crowd is scarce..

All the way from Thailand with his Dahon Hammerhead - Khun Thanit..

A friend of our riding her Flamingo foldie bike..
Note to self: Never hitch a ride from a fella and his baby seat, its bad for your gonads!
"If you think I'm sexy, then reach out and grab me.. nananannnnannna!!!"
Its all in a day's work..
We continued to ride for a good place to have lunch..
The happy wanderers and their food haven..
Meat dumplings in soup!
Curry noodles! Oh yeah....
Michelle's bike encountered a blown valve on the way back to the train station.. what a bummer!
After getting it fixed, it was time for some good coffee..
A day's hardwork, rewarded with good company and some iced coffee..
The day ended with a ride back to our nearest train station.. It was a fun day!
Great pictures. Are the Flamingos popular there?
I'd really like to get my hands on a flamingo, those bikes actually look better with the internal cable routing and extra gears for a good price!
Great pics Samo, also just wondering I know it's probably 30C+ there and see you two always use backpacks. Isn't that kinda hot for the weather? I can't do it here even when it's 20C+ cause of the heat I generate and prefer some airflow.
Apparently it's for sale in Malaysian bike stores:
for the price of $1155USD
bike rack with bigger wheels (all extra for bromptons)
internally routed cables for cleaner look.
for a similarly setup brommie it's 1450 so it's around $295 less.
I really like it but wonder how much would it cost to ship this to north america. not that I "need" another bike with the wife questioning my two wheeled habit.
i see that you had your bike in a bag, is it not allowed bare on a train in KL ? as usual - very nice pics and bike diary....keep them coming. you're becoming a hard core foldie too.
Errm, I think you better invest on a Brompton. Its far more superior than the Flamingos..
