RIDE #110: 22 JULY 2018

In its heyday in the 1920s and 1930s, Ipoh was the epicentre of a tin mining boom.  Newly minted millionaires built mansions like this one.  Following the depletion of its tin deposits and the collapse of tin prices in the 1970s, Ipoh suffered decades of decline and neglect.  Epitomised by these remains of what was once a stately home.

    Anytime you have two simultaneous punctures, there is a rule that you must be rewarded just down the road with good food and/or drink. I’m sure that is in the cycling handbook. Glad you found some iced mangoes! This looks like it was a really nice ride 🙂

    Ha ha ha I agree with that cycling handbook.

    It was indeed a good ride.
