It's Sunday and CFAL 8 was another 7 days away, I felt Jo needed another training and we reluctantly got ourselves out of the bed and drove to Hospital Orang Asli for the ride.
|Last January I used a MTB it was easy but this round I felt it was tougher, could it be my age is catching up or maybe it's the small wheeler that isn't good enough to climb.,,, hehehe.|
|We had a few stops as uncle and aunty were tired and needed a break.|
Jo managed to complete the ride and was rewarded with a good breakfast and again it was waffle & porridge to share.
|I was happy to meet some friends on this beautiful morning, the first was Sin Leng.|
|And later on the way back we bumped into the "Cari Pasal" gang.|
|Apparently Mc Donald's has been giving free drink for cyclists for the quite some time, well done Mc Donald's I am sure cyclists love the idea and will continue to patronise the place for a good refreshment and rest.|
|Then we rode back together with our friends.|
Generally it a great place to cycle despite the climb but nevertheless it is a good training ground. The only thing I like to say is that the road condition is getting bad and I hope the local authority could re-surface it for a better cycling. And rubbish dumping is so rampant along the route, this need to be .
At the end of it was a satisfying ride though painful but I am glad we did it. I hope Jo can complete the coming CFAL 8 in Penang.
|The Route of 34KM. 17KM uphill and 17KM downhill.|
