Cool stuff, I might say. I did a few orienteering with JBS WP during my teen years in their numerous Kem Cuti Sekolah. Those were on foot. Nowadays, being an avid biker, this looks interesting.
However, I might not be participating, as it is held up north in Gopeng, Perak. Plus, my riding permit for this year is suspended by the missus, following Umar’s birth.
It’s been many, many years since I used an orienteering compass. Not sure if I can still remember how to use it, plus the map.
Sour grapes? Of course.
======================
Note that there’s another mountain biking event (and history) taking place during the same weekend:
Well, it’s going to start at night, by the way.
See if you can participate both events. You might not want to miss out Malaysia’s first mtb NR Jamboree, too, right?
