Joe and me went over to Batu Kawan Stadium the evening before the actual day for a joy ride in Bukit Mertajam and stayed over for the official event.
|A group of us gathered at a homestay at 6.00am and were ready for the longest bridge in Southeast Asia. Yes! we were geared for the historical moment.|
|The organiser claimed to have 10,000 riders on the bridge but with the confusion and others this figure is questionable but visually the crowd was really fantastic.....|
|The crowd was so huge that we decided to wait a while before joining the ride. It was indeed a wonderful cruise on the bridge.|
|We were blessed with an excellent weather, the wind was strong but lovely and at times it resisted our motion. I just wonder whether there will be anymore cycling event on this bridge I would love to come back to do it again.|
|Thank you Cycling Malaysia Magazine for this nice photo.|
|The rain came later in the afternoon just before we reached Bukit Tambun for lunch. The rain was everyone's dream on a dry spell suffered for the last couple of weeks. Another blessing for Penangites.|
|Bukit Tambun is very near Batu Kawan we shall explore these places like Pulau Aman and the food in the near future. We had our lunch at Jetty Restaurant before we split. My last visit for seafood here was at Gee Seng Restaurant (just next to Restoran Jetti).|
