Kayuhan Nasi Lemak to S-Five Tropical Rest Garden

"S-Five Tropical Rest Garden" is the rest area, about 8km from  Raub on the way to Bentong/K. Lumpur.
On Sunday they serve free Nasi Lemak,  Roti Canai, fruits, tea and coffee to everybody that stop there.
We cyclists usually stop there when cycling to Lurah Bilut / Simpang Lee Rubber.
Last sunday I follow the group to the boundary of Raub-Bentong about 14km from Raub town.
Two way ride of about 27km. My average speed was 27km/hr, and time traveled 46minutes.
I calculate the calories burn with online calculator at Bicycling.com HERE and got the value of 498 calories
Average Nasi Lemak complete with sambal, anchovy,  fried egg  and peanut easily touching the 450-500 calories. So no wonder you don't loose weight despite all those exercise.

Nasi Lemak and Roti Canai. 1 piece of roti canai = 300 calories
