March 1 2009 Kulim road ride

Destination : Tanjung Dawai (Ikan bakar ride)
Distance : 120km
Starting point : Jabatan Hutan, Kulim at 7.30am sharp

Enjoyful joint MKH-UCI northern ride

About 50 riders turned up for for the northern ride. About 10 riders from Ipoh(UCI) and one from Cameron turned up for the memorable event. All support and plan went smoothly and every one arrived safely as group after 158km of mixed terrain conditions...including kampong road !!! Without great friendly cooperation from all riders and the many support people, not to mention 4 support cars and 2 support motorcycles, the event would be difficult to manage given the nature of ride. MKH organizing committee would like thank all involved during, before and after the event. Hilite of the day : Our lead vehicle support was incredible - he stopped all vehicles at intersections to make way for riders....Unlimited supply of drinks and bananas...Out of town visitors was never alone through the whole ride.. Mike, our only "Mat Salleh" was the champion puller for the event, never short of energy...and so on. Low light, one small puncture just before Kg Masjid....Pity that P2K (KL) riders could join us for the fun ride....maybe next time.
Pic Below : Just before the start...riders getting restless to start..Kulim Lee giving out brief directions
Pic Below : After 158km...Hmm everyone seems relaxed..maybe we should do 200+ Km the next time around....

Sunday Feb 22 - Fellowship Ride with P2K(KL) and UCI(Ipoh)

This is a friendly fellowship kind of ride with cycling club from KL (Peleton2K) and Ipoh UCI (United Cyclist of Ipoh). Total distance is 158km covering lots of outskirts of Kedah and northern Perak. Will start from Jabatan Hutan at 7.30am sharp. The ride will be supported by couple of support vehicles and some light refreshments. Most of the terrain are rolling and expect a short but relatively steep climb at KM 73 for approx 800m and 4 big/short rolling hills at Km 90 onwards. As we will be riding at quiet and less explored areas, food/waterstops/petrol stations will somehow be limited. We will make 2 official food/refreshment stop at 87 (Kampung Masjid) and 110km (lunch stop at Selama, Perak), couple with 2 regroup points at km 70 and 147 where it is possible to double up as water points too. There will be no official breakfast stop (due to remote location limitation), so pls make sure that you have your breakfast before the start and have enough supplies to last at least the first 70km of the journey. Attached is the simplified directions for the entire route. Looking forward to see all of you this weekend.
