9/3: Exploring Ampang Tasik Permai, Ampang Waterfront & Pekan Ampang

These days, I feel like doing some solo exploration on my bicycle around my neighbourhood. So today, I went out to check routes around Ampang Tasik Permai, Ampang Waterfront and Pekan Ampang.

I took some pictures of some notable landmarks, though I got lost at Ampang Saujana.

Many roads on the right leads up very steeply to the hills (Ampang Tasik Permai)

I got lost at Ampang Saujana (notice Ampang Look Out Point on the hill behind the flat)

Friendly residents at Ampang Saujana (I saw 5 of them)

Rode back towards Jalan Bukit Belacan via Jalan Lembah Jaya. I cut across to Ampang Waterfront, where there is a river (Sg Purun, i think, but Google Maps says it is Sg Kelang) along the Jalan Ampang.

Here I found a cycle path along the river behind the Ampang Waterfront buildings for a length of 1.7km.

Waterfront Bike Path

the 1.7km long bike path is divided into 2 stretches by Jalan Kosas Utama

this one takes the cake, a block of cement to prevent bicycles to go through (apology for poorly focused shot on my camera phone)

covered bike paths next to underground parking (nice)

After the bike paths, I had to stop for refreshment. the small glass of coconut water (RM1.50) at Pekan Ampang.
