After a good morning ride near Alor Setar, the group arrived at TT Gajah for breakfast and they had a hearty one at that.
All cheers for having made it to Alor Setar and TT Gajah especially after all the planning.
Dinner at Citarasa TT Gajah. The plates are ready on the tables and the dishes have yet to come.
Before that light conversation was in order with them discussing the plan for the next day
Help yourselves! Surely these are not the shy types when it came for what are served for dinner.
Now these two bikers found themselves at the Haadyai Food Market and especially at this solely petai shop.
They are bikers, not youth but seniors in the range of the 5th and 6th series . Sometimes even the 7th series may be in too. They came from Putrajaya and Kuala Lumpur. Not necessarily on their bikes i.e cycling right from the the two cities but carrying their folding bikes in the car boot and ready to do exercise upon reaching terracotta of Alor Setar.Three members flew to Alor Setar and the bikes made available to them. Several of them were members who cycled at Perth a few months back. It was a get-together as promised and it came through meeting again and now in the north of the peninsular with them having a magnificent sight of the rich Kedah rice-fields at this time of the year.
The vast greenery of the Kedah Plain near Gunong Keriang and where our visitors absorbed the view as well as visited the Padi Museum. Come a few months later it will be a golden field when the padi ripen.
No doubt feeling tired and a restful break with a good cup of coffee helped at Hj Salleh Kedai Kopi did wonders.
The nine magnificent in front of the gate to Istana Anak Bukit with seven folding and two mountain bikes for the ride in Alor Setar. Many would remember how we rode our bikes in the 50's and 60's. Even school boys and girls cycled for more than 10 miles to get to schools and back. It would be thought as a tragedy now. Thankful that cycling has come back.
