Exciting 220Km ride to Kuala Kangsar

Despite the severe storm and flood warning for Monday, 24 brave riders took on the challenge to ride to Kuala Kangsar and back. ~13 riders made it for the full 220km ride,with the rest started and ended at various locations. It was a smooth ride with planned higher than normal stop points to enable new riders achieve the distance. The group visited the Kuala Kangsar Jamboree site and met up with cycling friends before heading back. One minor accident involving the only lady rider, luckily she escaped with only bruises.
Hilite of the day definitely went to Tannie Wong who joined MKH ride for the 2nd time and achieved 220km on a Mountain bike despite a minor fall and stomach discomfort. congratulations to her and all the other riders who broke personal distance record. Also like to thank Kenny volunteered the support car, Lee for being support driver and another passenger who took lots of photos of the event. Hopefully it will be published on Facebook soon.

Participation in PCC interstate 2010

And the story begins........

Is this a holiday resort or a wild animal park or island outing trip or natural fish spa? Well, it is a combination of the above except for the fish spa which is actually part of a beautiful waterfall at Kenyir Lake. All this are part of the Interstate 2010 organised by PCC and it is a cycling event....covering 480km in 3 days from Kuala Kangsar to Tasik Temenggor to Kota Bahru and finally Tasik Kenyir. This year ~25 MKH riders joined the event in 7 support cars. It was a great organised event, credit goes to friends at PCC who year after year thru cycling passions manage to pull together such an incredible event. The route this year is definitely among the best and hotels without a doubt was definitely the best so far. Below are some pictures in random order to provide a glimpse of sweet memories from the 3 day event.

At the starting point Kuala Kangsar
And friends from UCI

Now some ACTION pictures
Support crew is even more risk taking

Last but not least...... example the "MKH Laugh" during the event.

Special ride to Tanjung Dawai - March 21 ride

This somewhat special ride for the group with ~50 riders turned up for the ride with the original intent of capturing a new group photo, farewell to Mike Johnston and a shorter than normal ride to cater for new riders. Well we accomplished most of them except for the severely underjudged distance of 138km versus originally planned 100/120km and 3 punctures along the way that stretched the ride to 3pm. Nevertheless it was an enjoyful ride and everyone made safely back. MKH riders will like to bid farewell to Mike and hope that he has opportunity to "repolish up his riding capabilities" in Beijing and extend warm welcome to many new faces that participated in todays ride, knowing that it was a distance record ride for some. Key pictures taken in today's event:

Kuala Sapetang ride

172km ride to Kuala Sapetang. Many know that Kuala Sapetang is well known for Mee Udang but few actually know that its previous name was Port Weld which have connection to our Malaysian history. We have 22 riders who decideto punish themselves to ride the whole distance for a bowl of 10 large prawn "Mee Udang" . There were a bit of added excitement this time around with the "short cut" 5km kampong road from the trunk road to Kuala Sapetang crossing under the North South toll highway. He we rode beside the highway for about a total 500 meters before going under it. It was an interesting adventure to ride road bike in a relatively rideable kampong road and decided to ride thru it again on the way back. Another unusual stop was at a cendol store in Kulim. Overall a pretty control ride and glad that every one made it safely.
