Date : Tuesday, March 3rd 2009

My, what a beautiful morning! The sun was shining, clear blue skies and birds chirping from my couldn't have asked for a better day to start our journey :o)

Our sponsors...

and more sponsors....

We left my house in Langkawi around 9am and cycled to the jetty which was about 6km away. There, we were met by two of my biking buddies from the 99bikes club, Ad & Kai who came to send us off (so sweet of them!) Our ferry was at 10am to Kuala Perlis. It took us about an hour to reach Kuala Perlis and yay! we started biking at last!

We stopped by Kangar for lunch and met up with Mak's friend, Wan Shahidan who have cycled around Malaysia for about 6 times and he's planning to do another round in August! I guess some people just love to cycle hehehe...

Our bikes parked outside a restaurant in Kangar :o)

Initially, we thought of heading to Wang Kelian to spend the night but since I have a friend in Padang Besar, even better! Along the way to Padang Besar, we wanted to visit Gua Kelam. Boy, the road towards Gua Kelam was really enjoyable! Beautiful scenery along the way....these are things that we would like to see more during our tour!!
