  1. Hi Jotaro, I'm looking for my first foldie and found your blog today. It has helped me cut down a lot of work on finding the right bike. Thanks! How much did the Dahon Dash P18 cost? I'm thinking of getting that too, if they still have it. I would also like to join a biking community in the Klang Valley. What are your recommendations? Btw, nice story (the not serious version) about how you got your 2nd foldie! Also may i have your email address so i can contact you? Thanks much! E

    1. Hi E,
      I am glad that my stories have been helpful to you.
      The Dahon Dash will be listed at around +/-RM2500 and from there you negotiate down. If they have it, it should be the 2012 model. Contact Johnny of My Bicycle shop, he should be able to advise you and his pricing is reasonable.

      You can contact me through the AhPek Biker FaceBook page.

      Do feel free to contact me, get your first bike and join us for our rides.

  2. Halo Ah Pek, Phang here - This is a nice blog u have here and is very interesting with all put up and stories behind all ride that such a great effort for all this.... GOOD JOB bro, and keep working with it as is going to be memories when come to certain time... i personaly feel it so much.

    1. Thanks Phang,
      That's the general idea. To write down our stories for future memories.
      But it's not where we ride that makes cycling interesting, the the people we ride with that makes a story worth telling - the fun we have together, the crazy things we do. I try to look & notice at the people angle while riding.
      Cheers Bro.

  6. Dear Ah Pek,

    I am a group of cyclist from Singapore and i would like to arrange a join cycling with your group. Any chance for a joint event?


    1. Hi Nancy,

      For a start perhaps you could contact Amoi on her blogs.
      She's with a group of cyclists based in JB, nearer to Singapore which could make it easier for joint events with Singaporean cyclists.
      Her blogsites are:


  7. Hi jotaro, great job on blogging your rides. Really love reading them all. Stumble upon during searching for hill rides near KL (I'm from Sarawak). Would love to read more blog from your journey!

    1. Hi,
      Thanks for your support.
      I guess in Sarawak, there are lovely hills to ride around.
      In KL, challenging hills are at the Bangsar/Jalan Pantai area, a built up area with moderate traffic. Their are many hills in Cheras, but traffic there is like crazy.
      You could try the Sungai Pencala area, nicely set in a cooling kampung area with moderate to steep hills around the kampong, explore a bit a you can find them easily and another good climb is at Bukit Kiara nearby.
      Here's a route map that gives you some idea of the place:,101.6354286,14.26z/data=!4m2!6m1!1s1CLQXtUXSC8t8zfiXwp0Lwv994pA
      This route also connects over to Desa Park City, where there is a decent climb.
      Hope this will be helpful.
      Ride Well & Ride Safe.
