At the Municipal Council's gate before flagoff

Enthusiastic cyclists at the starting line...
Our municipality council had launched a health ride every last Sunday and this weekend, they launched their first-ever ride.
Michelle and I were excited about this and had our Dahon Curve D3 and SL serviced at a Rodalink outlet in Bukit Tinggi, Klang yesterday.
So, we woke up early this morning, rigged up our bikes to the Majlis Perbandaran Subang Jaya's sports complex in USJ5, whic his roughly about 7km away from our home in USJ23.
The only way to get there without ending up as a roadkill, is by taking a flover on the LDP highway to USJ 20 and cross the the three-lane Persiaran Tujuan.
We made it to a Dimsum restaurant for an early breakfast in USJ21, but if was not open.
So, the next best thing, is McDonalds in USJ10, which is about 5.6km from our home.
Even at 06:30am the drivers were speeding like maniacs.
We had our Cateye Auto Reflex light and Topeak helmet blinkers to stay visible in the dark.
Breakfast was a breeze as we made our way to the sports complex.
We were among the early birds who had arrived at the starting point of the ride.
The distance is about 15km and the route took us to four of the Council's major 'Boulevards'.
Other than rodies and mounties, we were the few foldies at the scene.
We met a couple from Puchong who rode more than 11km on the LDP.
I told them to be very careful as the route is laden with heavy traffic.
Leading the ride were some former athletes and ex-national cyclist M.Kumaresan.
We were told that the average speed is 20km/h which is something that the foldie would do.
After the airhorn blared, we were on the road..
