Malacca Ride Part 2

Riding along the Stadhuys 

Last leg of the ride at Stadhuys
We didn't hangout that long at the Portuguese settlement. It was high tide and rather windy. 
From there, we rode back along Melaka Raya as the morning traffic was getting heavier by the hour.
We staged our ride to the Stadhuys where traffic came to a standstill. 
There was a large group of runners from the city's event and tourists were already flooding the main attractions of Malacca.
At the same time, the sun was out in its full glory and we began to feel the hit.
We rode from Stadhuys to Laksamana and made a U-turn back to Jonkers street and rode to Tengkera before turning to Jalan Ong Kim Wee and back to Jalan Kubu.
Michelle made a halt at Datuk Gan Boon Leong's gym and took some photos there. 
We proceeded to Jalan Hang Tuah and by this hour, the traffic was chaotic. 
From there, we made our way to Kampung Morten and the old bus station. 
There were some bums and prostitutes hanging around a bridge linking Jalan Tun Ali to Jalan Munsyi Abdullah.
We found the backlanes painted with a set of murals depicting the Malacca Sultanate of the 14th Century. Very nice and colourful.
From Munsyi Abdullah, we rode past a series of backlanes and back to Jalan Bendahara for a late breakfast.
I suggested a stall at Jalan Bunga Raya, but the hawkers there didn't allow us to park our bikes, so fuck it.
Then, we made our way to Jalan Temenggong and ended up at a coffee shop serving fishball noodles.
That really made our day and at RM12 to feed two people, one cannot complain.
After a hearty meal, we cycled back to the Jalan Bendahara carpark and packed up our bikes.
The journey home was breeze and we took a lunch break in Seremban before heading home in Subang Jaya.
Michelled had to head to work while I processed the photos of our ride today. 
We are looking forward to another fun ride in Putrajaya next week!
