photos - Port Dickson - Cape Rachardo, Malaysia

Hello folks!

Michelle and I had completed a ride to Cape Rachardo from Port Dickson in Negeri Sembilan to Cape Rachardo in Malacca. This was an interesting ride along the coastal roads of West Malaysia..

It was getting really hot!

There were lots of hills here, but as it turned out, we tackled it pretty well.. Thanks to some solid training!

Cape Rachardo is a nice and quiet place, some 19.5km away from Port Dickson. There is also a place to watch migrating Raptors..



My boss posing at the tip of the cape..



Taking some snapshots..



We made it!



A glimpse of the shoreline..



Time to hit the road..



There's plenty of blue skies under the scorching sun!
