|Some of us checked into this budget hotel Siswa Hotel.|
|A student by the name of V.K. Park volunteered to show us around Kampar the evening before the charity ride. Of course he showed us the beautiful campus of UTAR.|
|I was amazed by the initiative to promote cycling in Kampar especially in the new development surrounding UTAR though not perfectly equipped but it was a good start.|
|V.K. Park took us to a food court in the town for a supper where we enjoyed some local food. Thank you V.K.!!!|
|It was a great morning in Kampar we rode to a McDonald's outlet for breakfast before taking our pole positions.|
|Some of the cheerful faces before the flag off.|
|The route was interesting passing by Kampar town and some other smaller towns and villages.|
The weather was fantastic in the morning where some stretches with good shades from trees along the way.
|Water station for a brief rest and fluid intake.|
As we approaches the end of the ride the sun was slowly getting hot.....
|At last I can see Kampar town what a relief.|
|Three of us took a detour just before the finishing line for a wonderful local coffee and half boiled eggs.|
|Participants waiting to be lucky in the hope of winning lucky prizes.|
|That's it folk and bye bye to UTAR.|
|It was getting hotter and many have to go back home empty handed but not to worry we can try our luck again next year.|
