Epic ride 45km ni aku terpaksa pendekkan kepada 25km (1lo0p)
1) Batuk yg amat, so aku cepat penat n tak bole nak merokok 2) Selsema yg sentiasa mengalir buat idung aku tersumbat and had breath difficulity 3) I lost my Cat Eye for a second time in a row within 1 week 4) Bee Bite masa downhill. Aku geram betul kat berader sorg tu....dia yg kacau rumah lebah
Trail condition was so suck..muddy..rata2 riders tak dapat nak layan downhill. memang plan nak buat 2 loops tapi disebabkan keadaan di atas tu..i decided to complete 1 loop jer. Lagi pon condition beskal tak berapa bagus. Mud crank, mud rd, mud chain and the sound was so irritating while pedaling and seems to break if more force put into it. Lets say if, saturday tu tak hujan.. trail memang cun.. almost 80% rideable and the view of the Titiwangsa Back Bone was so incredible. Terrace memang cun..kalau dapat layan memang 100% kepuasan. single track yg memukau kan di rimbunan pokok buluh memang Layannnnnnnnnn selepas false loop yg direka oler Hares. Rolling trail yg dahaga kan percikan adrenalin memang syok and the momentum to create fast movement memang gilerrrssssss...tapi ape kan daya..tu kalau ari sabtu tak hujan lerrr... tapi ari sabtu malam hujan trun ngan lebatnyer...
830pagi rolling time from UIA ke Kg Pusu dan terdapat sedikit pendakian tuk sampai ke trail head. Pine yg pernah ke trail ni 4 thn lepas cuba memberi sedikit penjelasan. Dino yg bulan lepas da masuk..masih blurr tentang trail head.(dia ni kuat mkn kepala ikan tu) Trail head meliputi kawasan hutan yg terpelihara. Memang indah permandangan hutan disini..this is virgin..i guess. Pendakian dan rolling tuk jarak selama 2 jam ditempohi sehingga kem ketangga. Kem Ketanga break point. Dino ada pesan kat aku..if anybody feel to turning back..just decide here becoz after this..no such way man..Aku diam kan jerrrr.. Kesemua 14 riders meneruskan perjalanan.Gab mengetuai..Pine Sweeper, sesekali ngan aku lak. Memasuki fasa berikutnyerr....memang menduga segala kekuatan. Kita hampir lost. waluapun 2 gps dibawa. Dr Kem Ketanga menuju ke old dam..trail zig zag crossing the river. Aku tak ingat berapa byk sungai da ku harungi. At last selepas 2 jam baru ler nampak Rehat lagi...penat siut....baru aku terasa betapa penatnyer kali sejak hampir setahun mtb. lepas ni menuju ke Big Tree. Dino sekali lagi mengepalai..dan gab. Aku tgk ada seorg Pakcik (X guru besar sekolah zaidi da mula kebiruan.) memang penat..Masing2 da terbayangkan char kew teow kerang...nasi ayam waktu tu jam 230ptg. Perggggggggghhhhhh laparrrrdottttttt
Perjlanan ke Big tree mengambil masa yg tak lama sebab path masih wujud dan Traillog GPS masih bole digunapakai
Sesampai di Big Tree....jln mulai putus. 2 rider kebocoran tiub, kita kehilangan denai menuju keKem Sleh.Aku dgn terornyer mengunakan GPS tuk merecce jln ke kem sleh dan seterus menetak poko di bawah ni tuk dijadikan panduanAkhirnyer dptgak kami keluar menuju Kem Sleh...tgk da jam 330ptg..Selepas solat zohor bersama dino..perjalanan diteruskan menuju ke Pokok roket. Baru aku tau betapa sakitnye cramp..dua tiga kali aku berhenti sebab cramp, tapi perjalanan harus die=teruskan.. Sesampai di Pokok rokoet hujan mulai turun...trail mulai basah dan lumpur yg amat (marah lah pine aku pakai perkataan ni) Pine, komeng da hilang kemana, aku turun last sekali ngan dino.
crank aku da mula bising akibat lumpur yg terlalu teruk...sorg demi sorg ku pintas walupon cramp...cuma zaidi, gab, azmi,vio hilang dlm terang..pine n komeng jgn cakap...Syed, n reza mcm adik dan abg tak bole berengang..Kesian Hj mat....terlalu penat dan overdose lalu pengsan di penghujung jln .
jam 5 sampai ke kemnesah....Kesian hj Mat...betul2 da overdose.. tak bole gerak... cate eye aku hilang setelah 2000km dia berbakti kat aku..
By right our plan is to tour to KL-PD-KL but due to certain unforeseen matter, we change the route to GOMBAK > ULUYAM> BTG KALI> GOHTONG JAYA> GENTING SEPAH> GOMBAK (hereinafter called as GUBG)
We are welcome by minor Climb at Sri Gombak at 745am continuous climb to Ulu Yam, climb n more climb to reach P3 ulu yam waterfall. the climbing section only ended at the natural hill water sources after 1 hr ride.
Follow by the unconscious downhill where clocked about 65km/h and really fun after the climbed. The flat route with the hills and the green scenery was made feel so humble to the CREATOR yakni ALLAH SWT.
Reached Btg Kali town and refueled with the isotonic drink at nearby Chinese shop. Signboard shows another 26km to hit genting highland. but.........the fantastics climb are waiting front there. it will abuse us mental n physiology with max zone % and max hate rate .
Decided to break at a small barn near the road and delight with a bread n drinks and the most priceless cigarette blow light up here.....
The journey conti.... climb n climb n climb until we saw Rn R at Sg Btg Kali. Take a dose of caffein at the warung. They said another 3-4km to reach skyway cable car... haa lega rase....
Climb..n climb....climb....stopped........climb......climb...stopped....... we do it for every single km. and i do not how the warung guy calculated told me, it only 4km...my trip meter clocked 7.5km to reach Pondok Police..and another 500m to the cable car. really exhausted, minor cramp, hunger, phsyco torturing all in the package. but the most appreciation to ourself where we did it well with satisfaction and and success to fight with our own enemy, yourself.
heading to Genting Sempah after a break at balai polis gohtong jaya. We thought all over go back route is downhill but it seems incorrect hypothesis. We have to climb to the most apex altitude to get all the rewards.
Then Dino.....did the best downhill where he over took few vehicles to GS and so extremist that boy. Downhill from GS to mimaland is my play ground but the weather started to play the role to put anticlimax dose and the rain started drop the a tiny water mist n followed aggressively.
Lunch at 330pm at Gombak bt 3.
here we can get the best MILO ICE......creamy n so miloishhhh the taste.
The journey was so great in Jim Thompson trail.Length is about 50km a loop.
At 600am all mandatory equipments geared up and a bunch of riders was having simple breakfast that provided by NAZA BBB. Full of protein to ensure the tolerance and enuff energy to cycle.
At 730am we reached Ulu bertam where all the riders stage at this area. Well Known as pekan koboi and the transition area for all vege wholeseller.
At 800am after short briefing and prayer we left, and warm up pedaling to the trail.
whether seems so great at the beginning of the day and no complaint at all..Most of the trail for that day are tarmac and cemented road for sure the climbing was so torturing with high gradient
We encountered few rolling track but the most amazing is 7km down hill. For those addicted riders..here come your rewards but there are no riding without injury. Eventually few riders had did their stunt during the clashed and dropped. Its seems nothing for MTBIKERs.
The first pit stop was at Kem Mansun after 2 hours ride. Refueling is a must for those riders. They are no where of turning back once u reached here.
The journey continue to Surau that approached a lot of climbing skill. This is what we learn..pedaling with spinning method is the best approach.
Surprisingly, we clocked too fast to reach the destiny . 1145am. After a long break and Zohor, the climbing was so critical where the cemented road was terrible with the holes and slippery. The torturing was added with the heavily rain but for me this is the best part for the guy who loves challenge Ohhhhhhh gushhhhhhhh....my tyre....flatted . another tricky moment while ur adrenalin is pumping out, suddenly this occasion held. After change to a new tube...the climbing was conti...
till we saw Ladang Boh at the top of the hill...... That is our goal.
Do you know when is the best moment having a tea?......at this point the answer after all happened we reached there around 530pm
after a glass of tea... we decided to return to Ulu bertam...and it was a great journey in my life,, RIDE TODAY RECOVER TOMORROW
