Charity Ride for PK Yeoh, 24 April 2011

This was so called a 'Charity Ride' for PK Yeoh. He got hit by a car while cycling along MEX Highway about two weeks earlier. This was the first cycling event that we joined. It started at R&R Seri Kembangan. Everybody was told to gather around 7.30 a.m. When we arrived there at 7.20 a.m, the crowd was already there with all kinds of bikes from road bikes, mountain bikes until folded bikes.

Dua minggu lalu, lepas beli basikal saya dan isteri bercadang hendak berkayuh. Tak pernah berkayuh lagi ni....pengalaman pertama.

We are into Cycling

I am not very sure how and when. Suddently, I decided to go into cycling. Yap, it was just like that. I have a few friends that are already into cycling like  Akula Matiau  and Azahari. I had no interest in cycling while I was in Geneva a few years ago. I didn't see it interesting.  Cycling is not like riding superbike because I'll be the only one riding it - the seat is for one anyway :P This time is with my wife. The main reason why I'm into cycling is because I want to exercise. At least to maintain my weight under 70 kg and to keep my waist below 32 inches...haha.
