    Riding bicycles in Putrajaya

    I'm planning to put my bicycle in the 4WD and drive it to Putrajaya. Do they have a park for that purpose? Or any other nearest park from USJ.

    just cycle from Subang (SJMC) to Putrajaya Mosque and back lar..i done it before and its about 70km (both way)..

    or drive to the Putrajaya Mosquem park there. Then start cycling where ever u want.

    nearest park for cycling is FRIM or Bkt Cerakah or Bkt Kiara or RRI

    There are cycling lanes all over Putrajaya, especially along the central Boulevard.

    Putrajaya is a cycling heaven.. Been cycling there many times, at times from SJ to Putrajaya and at times, drive to Putrajaya, park at the mosque and start from there. If you want purely mountain biking, then try FRIM or RRI.

    here's another idea...try to cycle there and see if you can make it to Putrajaya before the T43 (now U43) bus does

    But, realistically...we are trying to get the U43 bus to stop in Bandar Sunway along the LDP (near the bridge connecting PJS7 to PJS9) so if possible, you could try to bus there and then bike from Putrajaya Sentral...

    must see if RapidKL allows bikes on buses tho....

    Are we allowed to cycle on LDP all the way to Putrajaya? If yes, maybe we shd organize a road trip there, eh? Count me in if time permits.

    As far as i know, bicycles are not allowed on highways such as the LDP. Probably hv to ride off road beside the LDP all the way there, hahaha.

    oh, too bad...funny thing is that more and more cities are attaching bike racks to the front of their buses to allow people to use bike and buses for intermodal travel...

    I have seen the roof of the cars fitted with a bicycle holder. Where do I get that and how much does it cost?

    I am also riding my new bicycle around Shanghai during this one-week holiday break. Though traffic is chaotic here, I think it's safer to ride bike in Shanghai's city as there's lane specially catered to bicycle and motocycle around the city, as compared to Klang Valley. I took my camera along and stop whenever I see a nice object to capture with my camera.

    Happy biking everyone!

    If you hv the $$$ to spend, get the Thule roof racks. I think it's about RM1-1.5k. You can't go wrong with Thule. With the roof rack, you can even lock your bikes and it's very secure. I would not recommend those boot rack, if ppl sondol your car from behind, there goes your expensive bike.
    . You can get the roof rack from BikePro in Taman Megah or KSH in Taman Tun. These r the 2 bike shops that cyclist usually go. Hope this helps.

    I finally took the bikes to Putrajaya last Saturday at 5pm. It was very very good and refreshing.
    I went to the Botanical Gardens at first and rode for 45 minutes by the lake.
    Very serene but also very quiet. Beautiful spot to take pictures.

    Later, I went to the Putrajaya mosque. They actually have bicycle lanes.
    A bit crowded with tourist but if you ride further down, less people.The bicycle lane steches from the mosque all the way to the convention centre and you can go to the Wawasan bridge as well.

    It was an enjoyable ride fora change and I plan to do more of this in Putrajaya. Thanks for all the information and I appreciate it.

    This is what a forum should be like and not filled with nastiness and negativity.
