My Boston Montague Taking Me to Klang from Home Again

I like my Boston Montague it is kind of a cool full-sized bicycle comfortable and excellent for urban commuting. Below is a ride where we traveled a distance for more than 40km to a neighbouring town.
The date was 31 August 2014 and it was Malaysia's Independence Day we called it Merdeka Day. Merdeka means Independence in our national language. I decided to take my Boston Montague with our national flag flying all the way to Klang just for a breakfast together with a group of friends. My ride started from home in the wee morning the weather was at it best with a temperature of 22°C.
Kuala Lumpur is another busy city with lots of vehicles on the roads but not on Sundays and Public Holidays. A group of us started from various parts of the city as we rode on a designated route and along the way the group grew bigger towards Klang. Boston Montague is a single speed folding bicycle which would be difficult for ascending tough climbs fortunately this route to Klang was reasonably friendly and we manged to executed it without much a problem. In fact we have successfully attempted a few times on this favourites route of ours.
At last we have reached Klang Town, the day began to get hotter and humid and by then our tummies were growling for food. Klang is famous for its herbal meat soup known as "Bak Kut Teh" and it is this cuisine that made us come to this town.
The moment of truth has eventually materilised as we slowly savour and enjoy the delicious food.
One of the several attractions in Klang Town we visited after our satisfying meal. This is Kuan Yin Temple of more than 100 years old and it is popular among the people of Klang.
The beauty of Montague bikes is that they are foldable and making them very portable for travel. Here we were at Klang Train Station waiting for our train back to the capital city of Malaysia. Boston Montague has a wheel size of 700c bigger than most of my friends' folding bicycles but it is lighter and simple. I am proud to own one and extremely satisfied with its performance.
These urban riders are enjoying every minute of it and more adventures to come. Till then see you and all the best.
Let's #RideMontague .
