As I shall be relocating very soon to Perth, Australia, a final farewell ride with my friends was in order. We head for Desaru, a beach resort at the Southern part of the East Coast of Peninsula Malaysia in 11 hours time. The ferry has been booked and 8 of us are raring to go.
It will be a melange of foldies from Birdy to various Dahons for this 95km ride, with some new friends tagging along. I shall be using my unequally yoked Speed Pro. This is a very quiet part of Malaysia especially on a Thursday so it should be a traffic-free ride with quiet, scenic coastal roads. Weather forecast afternoon rains with breezy and sunny mornings. Sounds perfect as we should check into Desaru Pulai Springs by 230pm latest.
The last time I rode here must have been 5 years ago. An old riding friend "Nuke Heng" who rides this route often, tells me that there is a fruit farm that offers a great lunch, so that is a must stop. Now, is this a healthy ride or what?
Its sad that the first ride for 2009 will be my last, at least in this part of the globe for some time.
