Bicycle touring workshop
Labour day ride A group of cyclists are putting up a workshop in UPM, Serdang on May 1. Leading the pack is En Akmal who will be sharing his views on bicycle touring. Details were put up in Baikbike.com, but there are some information that are still sketchy. From what I gather, a few groups are cycling to the event venue.
Foldies A group will leave from KL Sentral to the Serdang Komuter station. Then, they will cycle to the UPM. I don't know exactly the numbers, but their ride leader had clearly indicated that he do not encourage people with ulterior motives to join the event. Dealers and event organizers are told not to come.
Tourers Another group of cyclists are leaving from Bukit Bintang to Serdang. This, in my humble opinion, is one of the most dangerous routes to the location given. Even on a big biycle, the risks are obvious.
Community cyclists Of the lot, the longest distance would be logged by a group from USJ in Subang Jaya. They would be cycling from USJ 3 to Serdang. Good luck and ride safe.
Values and networking I do certainly hope that something good would come out of this meeting as there are mixed expectations. One thing is for sure: it will be an eye-opening experience!
