Since last 2 weeks, I interested to cycling again with the social ride group in Johor Bahru. There were two groups which will have cycling session at night.
On Tuesday, there area group gathered at Larkin, Johor Bahru and started cycling at 9pm. They mostly came from beginner cyclists and 'no so fit rider'. Most of them used a mountain bike and do mountain biking on the weekend. The route, from Larkin-Dataran Bandaraya-Danga Bay and back to Larkin.
On Wednesday, a large number of cyclist from various groups, ages, genders, and fitness levels including from Persatuan Lumba Basikal Negeri Johor, Johor Triathlon Club and more gathered at Taman Impian Emas in Skudai. They start a session at 9pm do a 6.5 km loop in Taman Impian Emas. The loop is good for speedwork and time trial training. Normally after cycling, there were a guys will do a short run.
If you interested to join a group who are have a craziness to tackle an off-road at night, in Johor also have. Founded by En Azhar(014-2761610), they gathered at Taman Sri Pulai and paddling in the dark of night only with headlamp and tail light to the estate nearby. They told me it was a lot of suspense, need an extra adrenaline and fun if you was tailed by a dogs!
It is good indicator that cycling already have a large number of people who are interested, the riders, and perhaps elite athletes in Johor. Furthermore cycling is the safest way to maintain the fitness and is provide a lot of fun, friends and you can eat a lot of food!
