On Merdeka day, I experienced my first multi-mode commute. I didn’t want to cycle all the way to Dataran Merdeka from my house, so I rode to Cempaka LRT station (about 3km). Then I folded Abby and took the LRT to Masjid Jamek station (RM2.40).
I got some looks from others when I carried my folding bike on to the station and train. I guess it is not an everyday sight to see a folding bike on the train.
I enjoyed the experience though. Someone even asked to take a photo of me with Abby while I was waiting at the station platform at Masjid Jamek.
I wished that I could have a Brommie that I could roll the bike around easily when folded, instead of lifting the bike with my “biceps”. It was a workout to lift 12kg up staircases.
In all, I enjoyed cycling on the closed road of TAR, Tun Perak. It was my first Merdeka outing at Dataran Merdeka.
