Rider's log No. 11: Putrajaya Core Island

About the title of this posting, okay, I admit this is not my 11th riding log to be posted here.

But it is a log on my 11th ride since I got my mountain bike slightly over two months ago. So, okay la, kan?

So here goes...

Date: 7 May 2008 (Wednesday)

Set off/finish time: 6.20pm to 7.15pm

Total duration: 55 minutes

Start and finish point: Millennium Monument, Precinct 2, Putrajaya

Approx. distance: 12km

Route taken: the promenade around the Core Island, clock-wise direction

Trail condition: cycling/pedestrian path, road and grass

Uphill/downhill: minimal (most challenging uphill being Precinct 18)

General notes:
  • lots of stoppage this time, to take pictures (my first ride armed with a camera)
  • enjoyed the beautiful Putrajaya sunset
  • penat! (back after a 2 weeks break)

Start point, the Millennium Monument

The graceful Jambatan Wawasan

Putra Mosque and Istana Selangor

Blurred pic ( I am doing 98km/hour here )

Water lillies in a pond along my trail

Judges' houses

Wakaf and picnic table by the lake, nice eh?

Putrajaya Lake is a strictly no fishing water body (except during fishing competitions, la)

The Palace of Justice in the background against evening sunset

Tun Mahathir's orchard house by the lake side

The Putrajaya International Convention Centre (PICC)

Alexandre III Bridge in Paris?

The famous Putrajaya sunset, calm, peaceful, and tranquil atmosphere
