the 53.7 km ride

i finally went cycling. as in a training ride, not a racing one. and i now know where i stand - waaaaaay at the bottom. yea...i'm a slow cyclist. i am in dire need of more training.
coming down the hill, which they made me go up painstakingly for the 2nd time just to take this shot

Anyway, on Sunday i joined Andy, Sue and Choon Yean for a ride at Hulu Langat. We started at about 8.30 am or so. The whole ride took about 2 hours 53 minutes. And we covered a distance of 53.7 km. The sun was especially hot at about 11 am. and the hills of Hulu Langat was quite treacherous. The fact that i was the slowest cyclist amongst them made me cycle alone most of the time. picture this - hot hot late morning sun. uber steep hills. alone on the highway. doesn't sound too fun aye? haha...but i had fun. i wasn't alone that much. i usually catch up with the rest pretty quickly. i think.
promote powerbar la what else...:)"so fast again? tsk tsk...sue sue..."

but the bottomline is i rode and i completed. and i'm so glad i did!ren, andy, sue at the Hulu Langat dam. the reason we cycled up and down those wicked hills
