Bali and Kuala Lumpur (2013)

Solo Rider 292

2 March 2008 : It’s the 13th Annual Tour de Hills Classic. A ride that takes you through the streets of Dural and marvel at the facade of 17-room sprawling homes seated in acres of land. (I’m NOT exaggerating, some of these homes were massive and you’ll need an army of gardeners to maintain the… Read More ›

This post was written before I had any blogsite. It was emailed to my cycling friends in 2003. Lately, I remembered the email and recovered it from archives. It is a story of one of my favourite cycling adventure.
