The first Dahon Folding Bike Club meeting here in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur was given a warm reception by a dozen or more bicycling enthusiasts.It was held at Rodalink bicycle shop in Jalan Telawi and I was one of the first guys to arrive.When I asked the sales people, the meeting was yet to take place.So, naturally, I didn't want to waste time there and took off to Bangsar Village to browse around.After 20-minutes, I returned back to the store and found Chanson Lau, the organiser a couple of members from the Club.This was the first time I signed up for an official cycling club that specialises only on folding bikes. During the meet, I met up with a few people, namely, Encik Ahmad Tarmizi Mahayuddin who works with the Bursa Saham, Businessman Wee Chong Siang who claimed he read about my Pulau Ketam post and veteran riders Uncle Billy and Mr Teoh Siang Teik who will organise a trip to Chiangmai, Thailand later this year.To me, its an eye opener to see a few passionate riders especially Uncle Billy who has in possession: one of the earliest Dahon folding bike.I also met a staff member of architect Ng Sek San who ride the Speed P8 bike.During the meet, I exchanged views with a couple of the cyclists who are new to the folding bike scene.Later during lunch, Uncle Billy told me about organising some commuting trips to the North involving folding bicycles. I am very keen on the prospect and was told that the Malaysia Dahon FBC would set up its internet forum soon.
