Weekend foldie race
 
Hello folks! Greetings from Malaysia... Just want to share last Sunday's foldie race that took place in my residential area..

My favourite riders Shawal Shafee and Mohd Hafiz Wong @ Wong Ah Thiam came in second and third respectively..

The foldies, waiting in line.. Not many and half of them are amateur athletes..

The former national rider in his cheapo bike came up fourth.. Not bad.. Its not the bike, its the cyclist! Take note of the lady on the far right, she was lapped at least one round before she could complete the ride.. Now, that's true grit!
