Hi Eric Welcome to Malaysia! Whereabouts in Klang Valley will you be based? To find the location of the Taman Jaya LRT station, best you ask anyone of us on the street. Alternatively u can check out these sites:

Avid cyclists ride almost every week and the fav meeting spot is at Bikepro in Taman can definitely make bosom bike buddies by joining them ;)

Hope this helps abit..

The "Klang Valley" is a short form for the whole KL/PJ cornubation. It's called so because of its location: all the rivers in the area drain into the Klang river system. Be that as it may, you won't be likely to find "Klang Valley" on any map, since it's not an official (or gazetted) name.

Taman Jaya LRT station is in PJ. PJ is sort of west of KL, in the state of Selangor. Keep going further west for another 20km or so and you'll reach the town of Klang, which is where the Klang river discharges into the Straits of Malacca.

HTH, Joe
