The long Chinese New Year weekends is the only time I have at least 3 days off from work to go for cycling.
First up, on eve of Chinese New Year, I joined Putrajaya Reunion Ride on Saturday morning. Wonderful ride but without shades, especially the long straight between Putra Mosque and PICC. We visited a couple of parks (too many in Putrajaya to remember the names).
Putra Mosque at 7.15am, with clear blue sky

On the first day of Chinese New Year, I joined another group for a ride at Hulu Langat to tackle the Genting Peres. This was my 2nd ride up to Genting Peres. We started at Hulu Langat Batu 18 police station at 7.15am, going through Jalan Sg Lui, detoured to Sg Tekala, and then went up Genting Peres.
We made a detour to this
Hulu Langat Semenyih Reservoir & Hydroelectric Dam along Jalan Sungai Lalang
The stretch of Jalan Sungai Lalang wiped off by landslides earlier in December
