010309 Unikeb UKM - Bangi Lama - Bkt Mahkota - Nilai - Kpg Gadong Jaya - Labu - Salak Tinggi

I'm tired of the same ol' route. So, change is the way to go.
This is gonna be a ride full of new adventures. We'll cruise by the usual Bangi Lama town & proceed thru Bukit Mahkota (not Mahkota Parade). From there we're off to Nilai via it's industrial area.
No we're not gonna stop by Nilai 3 for shopping. I dunno about Great Balls of Fire or Kooky Kash but I'm no shopaholic. The female species goes Ga Ga here. They have loads of soccer attire & all the other stuff but not a single bike jersey, so much for the so called shoppers heaven.
By the time we're in Nilai, we should have covered 20 km.
Seems to early to stop so it's best we proceed to Kampung Gadong Jaya. The 36 km point is good place to rest if, if we find a good spot to "Cekik/makan/lantak/balun/eat". Unless we wanna proceed another 20km to refill. That will be toooooo damn far.

Whatever happens 2moro, let 2moro be the decider. No point deciding now.

Here's the route homo sapiens.

220209 Sleep Cycle, Unikeb - Lenggeng

Zharin loves a pair of soft "Nasik Lemak"

Boy Acap, Sharul Hulk, Zharin, Md. Noor, Sham Dewa,
Zanudin, Zul Bangsar, Wari, Aini, Man CIOCC

Newly paved road that leads to LTDL Bukit Puyoh KOM. Semenyih to Broga passing by Nottingham University, then to Broga, Lenggeng. Climb up Kpg. Mandum Hill & reverse back to Lenggeng to refill & rest. Off uphill 2km to LTDL Bkt. Puyoh & proceed to Mantin & on & on & on...Total ride > 86km only.

Bull! You're dreaming, It didn't happen. Like I said, most of us were practically sleep cycling - my dear "Cyclomaniacs". Sharul Hulkv6tt entertained his mother in-law with Upin & Ipin till the wee hours of the mornin. We had to be coax him (scolding him actually) to follow us.

Dawn creeping, I was in Gombak with my eldest son. Went to pick up an ol' skool bike frame. If not for the rowdy bunch, I would have slept on the pavement. Aini & Sham Dewa had to turn back, both forgot their tortoise headgear.

8:00 am plus-plus, like a bunch of ol croaker, then only we started our journey. Some lunatic screaming at the riders, what da hell, oh... Md. Noor Red Chiken Comb - caught up with us later. After almost 2 hours of "soft" riding, Great Balls of Fire was lamenting "Jauh lagi ka?..." 5 minutes later we're in Lenggeng. Not a single one went ahead as planned. Like flies we swarmed the regular nasi kukus haunt in Lenggeng. Zul Bangsar's "Ummh!" was caught on video. Unanimously all decided to cut short the return leg, pillow waiving at us... 2 punctures sealed our fate. Goodbye Bkt. Mandum & Bkt. Puyoh, we'll scale you next visit.

The 33km ride to Unikeb was unquestionably unforgiving. Eyelids like an Eskimo - Delirious like a drunk drone.
