Tanjung Leman Recce Bike Trip 18 & 19 Sept 2004

i saw this place 3 weeks ago when we passed by it while on our way to recce Pulau Tinggi.
i wanted to cycle here to check it out, so i managed to con some cycling friends to come along.
Tanjung Leman is about 113km from Johor Bahru. the last 28km is the most arduous - with BIG hill climbs and fierce headwinds. we were lucky - we got those plus heavy rain for the first 10km and hot sun till we reached the beach.
the way home was the most eventful and memorable.
