Bike-Ride to Australia 14th-February-2012

Bike-Ride to Australia Tuesday 14th-February-2012. In Kuala Lumpur. This cycling malarkey feels like a job sometimes! Especially when I’m not riding, all I seem to do is spend most of the day on the computer. It’s like being back home and spending the day in the office! Not that I can remember working very well! It’s been so long since I worked properly. The bike shop saved me early today from a few hours of computer work. Even though I know, I have to do it to continue my journey.

My bike was ready for collection. And I wasted no time in going to get it and jumped on the LRT to  Taman Bahagia. When I arrived at the shop, my bike was all ready for me. My Speedhub was all serviced with an oil change, and they’d tightened up my brakes. And they’d even sorted out my clicking peddle by taking it apart and regreasing it. If that had happened in England, they would have just thrown the peddle away and stuck a new one on. I chatted with the bike mechanic for a while. I was in no hurry to get back to the laptop!

Back To The Hotel

What a difference from yesterday. It took me fifty minutes to get back to the hotel! As opposed to five hours yesterday for the same journey! Not that I was in a rush to get back to the computer, but it has to be done!

I went to China Town for supper tonight and realised that it was Valentine’s day today! Somebody find me a bucket! It’s as bad here, if not worse than it is at home.
