This year its a lot tougher, with over 62km to cover and a totally different route altogether. Which explains why there is only me n patrick xplorer on this ride only. The rest of the gang has totally dropped off the biking scene. But participants for this years even actually upped compared to previous seasons.
As always, organizers for this event is top notch, 100+ drinks, mineral water, banana's and buns. Plenty of em which never runs out. Unlike the CFAL ride last week where there were no water and no food on first 2 feed points(unheard off).
Ride was okay, sun didnt show itself at all on the whole ride. And they made it all very punctual. 7am sharp start and all would arrive at 10+am.

Another ride. But this week the haze was really bad. We were wonsering where these haze came from. Indonesian forest burning again?? Do they really have soo much trees to burn over there?.
Anyway, just a 4 person ride this week. But we made good time to kubang rotan and back again. Around 2hours for a 40km+ride with stops.

But i didnt get the pictures to prove it. Saw em' on my ride to kuala kedah. Not one or two but a whole family of em. With little baby monkeys clinging to thier moms. Weird sight indeed especially on such an urban route(behind sime tire factory). And they're different than the usual kinds as well, with white facial hairs all over thier face. For the rest of the rides, there's also sheeps and cows. Lol..

Been awhile since us "noobers" rode together. So, on this particular public holiday, most of us went for a ride. Me, Guan, Xplorer, King and Gu(new noobers).
Location; Around town and to kuala kedah
Distance : 40km or so.
Weather was really great. at 11am and its still cloudy, a really good day for riding.
First flat, cuz that new small block 8 ate a fish bone!!!! There's a first time for everything!!!!
2nd flat, which we didn't know why.. probably due to excessive laughing at fish bone flat. Karma!!!
This fruit decided to land straight on to Guan's mee. Lucky as heck. Then, when we're finishing up, another flat on the fish bone wheel again!!! x3 in a day. What an awesome luck. I'm just glad it didn't happen to me anyway..

Lots of mud(raining the day before) but the day itself was friggin hot.
714th position outta estimated over 1200 participents.
Didn't finish it. Came unprepared on the back of a very food binge trip to bangkok, lasted till the very last hill. Waited with a couple of guys for 4x4 trucks to come in and guide us out of the track without taking the last climb.
It was soo hot that i totally ignored the lucky draws and goodies bag. Straight went for the car and zoom straight home.

its not for me, for the missus.
Dahon Eco C7
5 rides so far, and here's my 2 cent on it.
Fast, not as fast as my giant, but i guess it's good enough as a lap bike. Definitely so as i've done laps with it on a newly built mini mall around my place, and it really is suited for brand new tars. Smooth. Without shocks, going thru the regular old and hard tars just makes the bike feels stiff and hard. Every bumps is felt. All in all, i would say that it really is a surprise that it can really zoom around that fast.
Looking for a child carrier in the middle now, can't wait to carry my son with it so that he could join me on my rides...
no... this ain't gonna be my full time bike.. still preferred my giant.
