Kuala Selangor - Sabak Bernam - Kuala Selangor ride part 1

At Tanjung Karang before the rain
I had to call off a ride two weeks earlier from Tanjung Karang to Sungai Besar.
Citing exhaustion as the main cause, my wife was not in a shape for a long-haul ride.
Barely days into the weekend, I came up with a diabolical plan.
A surefire way of hitting the magical '100' on your bicycle's trip meter.
The plan was to cycle from Kuala Selangor to Sabak Bernam and back.
So, with adequate rest, we did just that on Saturday.
Why Kuala Selangor?
There's ample parking on a weekend and its also easier to get supplies like water and food in this town.
We worked our way to Kuala Selangor from our home in Subang Jaya and arrived there at 7am.
After we set up our bikes, we hit the road and the first landmark was the Kuala Selangor bridge leading towards Pasir Penambang.
The journey to Tanjung Karang is roughly about 14.3km (50-minutes ride) away from Kuala Selangor.
We stopped at a tire shop when it started to rain and spend nearly an hour stranded there.
When the weather was much better, we proceeded to Sekinchan.

Add another 15km, we are in Sekinchan.
The first thing we did, was to get something to eat.
Michelle was hungry and when we reached Sungai Burung, I asked her to pull over to bus stop.
There, we had a piece of Vanilla crunch Powerbar.
And this never tasted so good!
It took us about 20 minutes to get to the Bagan Sekinchan.
Even with the sun shining, it was drizzling. We found Guan Huat restaurant and had a late breakfast.
The house dish here is the spicy hot pot with fish fillet. I don't know why the lady owner of this makan place had recommended fried fish in spicy tau choo which is similar to the hotpot, but we were too hungry to argue.
At Sekinchan, I noticed a flock of sea birds nesting on a tree line.
They looked like those "Angry Birds" from Rovio's game apps on my LG Optimux 2X.
I snapped some shots before moving on to Sungai Besar...
