The image loading feature on blogger.com has been down for a coupla days. So, here we are, back on track. While I was having a Sunday all to myself, I felt inspired to plan for a long-distance ride. I would put my physical strength and mental endurance to test on a route from Klang to Teluk Intan via the coastal road. We've done Kuala Selangor - Sabak Bernam - Kuala Selangor and clocked about 132km on one day. That's the longest so far. For the next long-haul, its even further. Lugging along some panniers would me room for spareparts, tools and other essential gear. Like veteran cyclist FC Meng would put it: "Aiya, if you cycle in Malaysia's coastal roads, don't have to worry about food la. You can stop anywhere.. " I guess that he's right on many counts. So, planning on where to break the journey is vital to this trip. On whether I want to pack up in Teluk Intan and hit the road or do a loop, that's entirely up to whatever energy I have left as much is left to the unknown on the road..
