A Repeat of Durian Loop Ride but No eating Durian

This man by the name of Norman subtly convinced me into it, initially I told him that I will only do half the loop as I will be cycling to SS2 from home like some of my Sundays. But I ended completing the whole loop.
 These two loops are identical except the blue one did not include Lovers' Hill of University Malaya and some other longer routes we took in Kepong area in our first ride.

I left home at 7.00am and met these two buddies at Keramat LRT Station at 7.15am
7:40am - It was nice to see new faces in rides that I am leading. As normal a good breakfast is a must and we had it at Jalan Maran.
8:20am - All ready, energetic and just couldn't wait to roll at the junction of Pekeliling & Ipoh Road.
8:40am - At the end of Ipoh Road and standing by for Kepong.
9:20am - at a congestion in Kepong Baru Market.
9:30am - I said "Hello & Good Morning" to this elderly cyclist at a bridge flying over to Bandar Menjalara.
9:31am - We took about a 25 minutes stop at this stall for a rest & refreshment just immediately after the bridge.
9:55am - Over to Bandar Menjalara.
10:20am - at the border between Desa Park City and Kg. Sg. Penchala.
One for the ablum at Desa Park City.
10:26am - We were in another setting of another world at Kg. Sg. Penchala.
10:40am - One of the bicycles encountered a puncture, there were no spare tube for that wheel and the patching work did not work. Nothing more that we can do to help.
10:49am - The rider has to hitched a ride to the nearest repair shop in the kampong.
11:06am - A substantial time was idled waiting for the fate of the bicycle and it was decided that the group to proceed as the bicycle cannot be repaired immediately. So we continued with one rider less.
11:15am - we met another group of friends mostly foldies at Taman Tun Dr Ismail.
11:30am - the reinforcement of two group comprising of 30 cyclists taking a group photo at a pedestrian bridge linking Taman Tun Dr Ismail and Damansara Kim.
The bridge that is ideal for cyclists to cross at this busy road of Jalan Damansara.
11:45am - we had a good fun invading the car park of Tropicana City.
12:30pm - we left SS2 Petaling Jaya a good lunch.
12:50pm - at the neighbourhood of Section 16 Petaling Jaya
1:18pm we were scaling Lovers' Hill of Univerisity Malaya.
And all graduated with flying colours!!!
1:55pm - we were in Bollywood world Brickfields.
2:07pm - we reached the city centre.
2:09pm - Yeahhhh .....free for all.... the entire road is closed...let's spin.
2:20pm - Be careful when crossing busy street like Sultan Ismail.
Finally the ride ended at 2:35pm. All safe and well. Congratulation everyone and I hope to see you again!!!
By the time I reached home from Titiwangsa it was 3:20pm and a total distant covered for the day 80.07km with calves aching.....I love it.
