Let's Go to Penang for another Round-Island Ride - CFAL6 2014

Me and my wife left Kuala Lumpur early in the morning with a plan to have Dim Sum in Ipoh and were able to fixed up with Norman & Co at Foh San for a lovely breakfast. 
By noon we have reached the island and headed straight to Tanjung Tokong. Slowly but surely I am getting another candidate into the cycling craze.
The crowd wasn't big and it was an easy registration cum collection of jerseys at Straits Quay Mall.
Some of the members of the hApPy Cycling group.
Wherever and whenever we go for events we would normally go for a group pre-ride to see exciting places of attraction and this time we have friends from Penang to show us around.
Special thanks to Larry, Jimmy, Winnie and Aliya for their excellent hospitality.
Meeting new friends in the cycling circle is indeed a wonderful thing.
Briefing by the Yellow Man, Larry.
So, the fun gets started....
Joon from Kuching Sarawak was with the ride too.
Our first stop was at Kimberley Street for the famous Teochew Cendol.
We rode towards Sg. Pinang and it was a bit tricky as the traffic at that hour was pretty heavy, nevertheless with our extra attention and caution we were safe.
"Auto World of Penang"
A group shot at the autocity!!
Time to invade Kapal Singh Drive.
Hooray!!! so this is Kapal Singh Drive. We salute to you Mr. Kapal Singh.
It is a nice seaside promenade and the people in Penang has named it with a street name in honour of the Tiger of Jelutong. You shall be remembered Mr. Kapal Singh.

And it's back to the city.
Another street mural for the cyclists to pose and shoot.
So we are back to the city centre and it is dinner time
That's all folks, have a good sleep and get ready for CFAL 6. Ribuan terima kasih to Larry & Co.
