A Round Island Ride by a Group of Heng Dai for the Bride & Ji Mui

The journey
This was my first time being a member of a group of Heng Dai going for the Bride and Ji Mui. And this particular wedding is rather unique we have to cycle round Penang Island before we can be at the door step of the Bride and that was a long & sweaty journey.
5.30am - I was already at Lone Pine Hotel after a breakfast at McDonald's opposite the road.
Some of the Heng Dai having their breakfast at the lobby of the hotel and this meal was absolutely essential for the ride.
6.00am - We were ready to roll.
6.15 -  I dropped my chain I guess I shifted the gears too fast and that was the first stop for everyone hehehe...
6.30 - at Convent Secondary School, Light Street.
6.50 - At a traffic light beginning of Tun Dr. Lim Chong Eu Expressway.
7.10 - at the neighbourhood of Queensbay Mall, Bayan Lepas
7.30 - at the tip of the runway of Penang Airport.
7.50 - the first major climb at Jalan Teluk Kumbar
8:10 - we reached the peak of it and took a rest.
8.40 - Finishing Jalan Sg. Rusa and heading for the second climb. This climb is higher and longer.
9:00 - after Titi Kerawang Waterfall and a distance of 63km was clocked in at this point.
9.35 - here we were at Telok Bahang Dam.
9.40 - we left Telok Bahang Dam after a rest and video recording
10.00 - we reached Lone Pine Hotel and were ready for the Heng Dai versus Ji Mui duel.
Let the game begins.........
What a memorable experience to be one of the Heng Dai.
Go & Well with the Heng Dai & Ji Mui.
Congratulation to Go & Well!!!
