Saturday Apr 25 Ride outcome

Normal round island ride but abnormally huge turn out. 14 riders including 1 roadie and 2 triathlete turn out for the ride. Many first timers including Michelle, Arlene (from Phil), and 4 riders from Butterworth and Kulim( came over in the wet morning to join the ride. It was a relatively smooth ride to Teluk Bahang before the bunch split into 2 groups with the faster one having a longer ride and also opportunity to climb Bkt Genting using offroad path. Definitely look forward towards future ride together.

Sunday May 3 Road Ride

"Mee Udang Ride" for those non-local it means "Prawn Noodle ride". We will be riding to Kuala Sepatang for a nice "mee udang" brunch. Ride starts from Jabatan Hutan at 7.30am. Expected distance: 150km++ . For those who wish to have a shorter ride can start at Parit Buntar USM entrance at 8.45am.

What a ride to end Apr 2009

Yesterday is supposed to be enjoyful ride to Tanjung Dawai turnout to be a nightmare of punctures with total 6 recorded stoppages. Due to the huge delay (4 punctures on total on the way there) the group decided to end up in Kuala Muda and another group decided to return to Kulim only to suffer another 2 more punctures on the way back. Total distance covered was only 111km but all returned safely at about 2pm.
MKH suggest that we check our tires regularly and have it check before May 1, 200km ride as a courtesy to fellow riders since it is going to be relatively long ride.
