Michelle and I don't really join in any group rides.
We are doing pretty well on our own and are really enjoying the short, middle and long-distance rides.
Of late, more and more groups are coming up in social media domains like Facebook.
I can see that weekly rides are organized to some really cool places.
Two months ago, I met Andrew Ng, a fellow cyclist who lives in USJ8, Subang Jaya.
Ng and his wife Hui Min is a husband and wife time who had organised some rides for beginners and novice folding bike cyclists.
As a follow-up to their ride to Broga, Lenggeng and Mantin, Ng organised another event called "Durian Runtuh Ride".
It covers the same route and distance and received a good response. Most of the cyclists were newcomers. Some, I came to know through Facebook, a few of them, I had led in a ride to Sungai Sendat, Selangor.
As a participant, I don't have to worry much, but to join in the ride.
So, for this task, I rode my Dahon Speed P8.
I get to see parts of the Selangor - Negeri Sembilan border villages that I never knew existed.
For me, the most interesting part was Lenggeng and Mantin in Negeri Sembilan.
The terrain is manageable as there was a short climb towards the Mantin junction.
As for Durians, the guys found a stall in Lenggeng that sells them.
I refrained from eating as the day grew hotter.

I had the chance to catch up with the riders and have some beers before heading back.
To sum up it, Ng had done a good job in organizing the ride. I hope to join more of his rides in the future..
