Another restful nights sleep and we were good to start today’s cycling. What an excellent day it turned out to be.
The first part followed the main road, it was a good surface with a good shoulder and almost no traffic, win win. As an extra bonus much of it was next to the sea with some nice beaches.
Large sandy beaches
Late last night there was a major thunderstorm with torrential rain. Not a night to be in a tent or even out and about.
We were nice and dry, as were our bicycles, and after a good sleep we were ready to get going.
Need we say any more?
It was a comfortable night at the hotel so we didn’t get going until 9:30 am.
Similar to yesterday the days cycling was on main roads but unlike yesterday it was a pleasant ride. The roads were wider and mostly a good shoulder, enjoyable cycling.
Views along the way
Today we made our way out of The Robertson for the last time, if anyone wants a very centrally located place to stay then you would not go wrong with these apartments, there are lots available on the various booking sites and AirBnB.

Over the last three days we have wandered around Kuala Lumpur. It is amazing how fast the week has gone, we decided to extend our stay here a further three days.

Another tourist day today and a visit to the Petronas Towers, cost RM80 per person. You can book online, picking a time slot and you are sent a QR code for each person which is scanned on entry.
View up just before you enter the towers
A day for some sightseeing, the Batu Caves. This is both a natural cave system and a very holy Hindu Temple.
A lot of information about the caves and temple is on Wikipedia https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batu_Caves.
It is very nice just to relax in a very comfortable apartment and just go for a stroll during the day.

Happy Chinese New Year, it is the year of the Pig.
The Chinese New Year is a national holiday here, nearly 21% of the 31,000,000 population of Malaysia is of Chinese ethnicity. This meant the roads were all very quiet as we cycled in to Kuala Lumpur, the short 22 kilometre cycle turned out to be really nice not the chaotic stream of cars we were expecting.
Lots of construction everywhere
We move ever closer to Kuala Lumpur, with a mixed day of cycling.
A lot of main roads as you would expect nearing the capital of Malaysia. There were a couple of quiet sections along the way, we even managed to find a small gravel track. There was a hill or two thrown in for good measure as well.
