This week ride is a short one. Rafif asked to revisit his favorite bike route when he was still a kid: home to McDonalds Pondok Indah for unhealthy breakfast. So here we go.
However finding the route was too short for both of us, we detoured a bit, and went cycling to Bukit Golf area, one of Jakarta’s most prestigious complex, which has very green area and quiet road, ideal for cycling and jogging.
And as what we had in the past, we completed the ride with breakfast meal in McDonalds. Had pretty good chat too with Rafif, which is what this weekend cycling is all about: father-son bonding time.
Back to our Sunday’s cycling schedule, back to Car Free Day (CFD) area! But today we rode to the places we haven’t visited last time: the new Semanggi Flyover and the recently renovated Gelora Bung Karno (GBK) stadium.
Leaving home around 5.45, we arrived at CFD around 6.15. The southern part of Sudirman street was not too crowded, so we had quite good ride with hundred of runners.
Of course we stopped for a usual photography of our bikes ☺️
Committed with our biweekly cycling schedule, today we took much less distance than 2 weeks ago. The total distance covered is “only” 20 km: from home to Ragunan Zoo, cycling inside the zoo, and return home. Although the distance was only half from our epic trip to Kota Tua, but actually the route was quite demanding, due to elevation.
We arrived at Ragunan Zoo around 6, and the zoo was just opened. For runners and bikers, coming early is the recipes for satisfying sessions. As there are not many visitors around, which help you to enjoy your activity in green, serene environment.
