MKH Secretary

Many asked who is the one maintaining MKHKayuh blog and interesting enough some MKH riders don’t even know its existence. Well it still not too late to introduce our secretary and the only lady rider, she is none other than SL Cheah (SL= SuperLight, SuperLong Distance or whatever you can think off) . She was originally from Kuala Kangsar but live in Penang for the last 13 years. She has an amazing athlete profile in recent years from running and cycling. She did her first marathon in 4.30 and her longest ride is ~265km. She has done several 200+km rides with the group and is hell of a climber. Her leisure time up Penang hill is 50++ min and in her only up hill race(BM Hill) she not only came first among the ladies, she also beat men the leading senior veteran. Amazing athlete but chooses not to race extensively. Currently taking some time off from long workouts to make way for other life priorities but she vow on her return…and we very much treasure her return and company….. MKH mates (courtesy of Danny)

The Incident

Firstly i would say unfortunate but then fortunate..... Unfortunately one of our MKH best rider, Danny, has an accident during Sunday Ipoh friendly ride. He has 4 fracture ribs and 1 broken collar bone. This is merely just felt down from the bike when he lost his balance during uphill on the road. He was immediately ferried to Ipoh Specialist's emergency ward and then admitted to ICU due to the lung injured by the fracture ribs. To avoid the lung being collapse he was under 24 hours monitoring. I was told he even still messaging and reading SMS in ICU, tough guy.
FORTUNATELY, (Thank GOD), he is stable now and has been transferred to Penang GMC at ward 614.
Let all pray for his speedy recovery because we all already miss him.

PCC Interstate Day 1: Ipoh to Taiping

With a filled stomach from last night dinner I believe we all slept well. I look at my handphone clock and it showed 4:11am. Damn....2 hours earlier than my normal weekday routine. What to do as we love food and we must have dim sum before we suffer for the next 5-6 hours on the road. It was 5:15am when we stand in front of the dim sum store with door closed but we were lucky as one small dim sum shop already open down the street. Yum yum....
We ride to Sri Malaysia to meet up with the Kulim gang and head to the starting point, Casuarina Hotel. We let the PCC official riders go 1st since we are considered "lumba haram" because we did not register for PCC officially. At the same time Danny tyre burst so we all waitied for him for ~30mins. Danny and Khalib will need to go at least 40km/hr to close the gap with the 1st pelaton and they did, not surpise to us.
The route is really unique where it passed thru many small villages with less car and more side view. We ride thru Perlop, Lintang, Kati, Karai, Kuala Kangsar, Padang Rengas, Air Kuning and last stop at Taiping Lake Garden. Places that we never heard off and it is really an enjoyment plus the countless rolling hills that added more fun to the ride...yahoooo....When we reached Taiping my meter show 155km at 1:15pm. But Danny and the gang should be there an hour earlier.
Dinner, must talk about food other than riding la. We went to Matang to have seafood (somewhere close to Sepatang) which is recommended by a local Taiping dude. I am sure we all made our stomach very happy that night. By the way, we got a surprise call from chipsmore said he is on his way joining us riding tomorrow. Mr Chipsmore is always unpredictable. But i am sure we all happy to have him around. Day 2 Taiping to Bukit Mertajam be continue.

Day1:PCC Interstate Eve ride - Aug 30 Pg to Ipoh

Total distance based on my speedometer: 171km from Penang Island to Ipoh Utara.
Early in the morning where the moon is still high in the sky we started our journey in Penang and 2nd group in Kulim. We met up at Sungai Bakap after 2 hours ride plus ferry to Butterworth. Traffic at Prai was horrible and we have to stop multiple times to squeeze thru between cars/bas kilang/lorry and some senseless/selfish drivers. Our 1st stop at Kamunting for a quick breakfast before we continue our journey. Another stop at Kuala Kangsar for a cooling "mata kucing" and "air kelapa". Someone has to recall my memory because i think we stop at Chemor (or somewhere else) to take cover from the heavy rain. It is to avoid the bike getting wet and dirty (ya for those who loves bike more than themselves). For the last 20km the secretary was suffering as the lactic acid accumulate on her tight that she can hardly pedal >20km/hr. Thank you for those who waited for her. We parted at Tasek and ended our 1st day ride with all arrive safe and sound. The Peng Soon's group took a cab to the town to have a sumptuous feast at "Lo Wong" bean sprout chicken shop. We consumed one whole chicken with many phoenix feets as well (chicken feet la in lay man term). We called it a feast because for the last few hours we only have water, 100 plus, water....... Of course we did not stop here and continue to have fried koay teow the ipoh way then fruit ice kacang before we call it end. What a day! Got to sleep early as someone suggested to go have breakfast at 5am!!

A few MKH members (also from Cameron) take some timeoff from the bike to go hiking instead. According to the sign board, it claims it is the longest trail in Penang Island. Starting from Teluk Bahang, Hutan Rimba and ending at Penang Hill covers total ~11km. We manage to complete the route in ~ 5 hours (quite relaxing pace according to Danny).

No title

I believe most of us do not know who is Terence Powerbar Penguin. Here is what I know: He was selected as PowerBar Team Elite in year 2006. He competed in marathon, duathlon…..One year ago he was diagnosed with brain tumor and he has passed away last Friday at aged 40+ (married with one kid). Do I know him? No, I don’t know him but I did see him during one of the Malakoff race. The message I want to emphasize is, LIFE is SHORT. Sometime it is shorter than we thought it should be. So don’t take things for granted. Don’t worry too much because by the time we have answer for our worries we may be either left the world or too old to do anything. Go out and achieve something for yourself. Don’t worry whether you can complete the race or not, we can always come back and try again as long as we are still alive. There is no winner who never has failure. Just Do It MKH!! Something to share

Mengkuang MTB GP 2007 (Jun)

June 2nd Kulim-Perlis

Tagging along with the heat of Giro d'italia, the MKH decided to organize a MKH d'Perlisia. There is no Di Luca because Cannondale rider vacation in Cameron. But we have Danny Schleck with his favorite Cervelo and David Simoni who conquered Monte Zoncolan ha ha ha......Anyone plan to get a BMC? Cool time trial bike.

On a cooling June 2nd 7:30am at Lee's house, 14 riders are all set to complete the 185km ride to Perlis Padang Besar. At mid day when the temperature is rising it starts to drain out the riders energy but we were fortunate to be treated with kenduri style at Wadi's house for lunch at Kangar. After recharged team continue to complete the 30+km to Padang Besar. The day ended with seafood and shopping.

Second day, captain suffered from diarrhea but the ride has to continue as well. The plan is to go around Perlis area from Padang Besar passing thru the sugar cane area. We stopped by at the Bukit Ayer Jungle Park for group photo and continue the journey back to Padang Besar. Wahab treated the team with his kampung style home cook lunch. Yummy.
