18.10.2009 - Plentong Offroad

Sunday 3:30am. I finally switched parts from T-Bolt to Mutt and tuned it, although there's still a bit more to be desired. Why the switch? I missed the hardtail already, following last week's ride.

7:45am Yad arrived to ferry us to Plentong for the weekend's offroad. Packed the bikes and riding paraphernalia in his car, we went to the house in Plentong. As soon as we arrived, we set up our bikes and I helped Yad to patch his tube (from last week's puncture) amidst the welcome buzz from the resident mosquitoes. Went for breakfast at Pakcik Sham's roti canai shack circa 8:15am, Yad's treat (or is it in exchange of 5 rubber patches?).

8:40am we rolled downhill on tarmac towards Neo's house. Many of the riders are set with their gears already. Soon afterwards, we started rolling into Plentong offroad.

I like the ride, and enjoyed it tremendously. There were singletrack sections that I've never ridden before. Leave the trails in Plentong to Neo, he's like a GPS in there, plus the surprises. I tell ya, if the ride was a preview of Plentong Epic Ride, then it is something to look forward to. 'Nuff said.

After the ride, there's makan2 at Neo's. I lost count of how many satay I had. The main thing is, although already at the end of Syawal, I finally get to eat nasi himpit with kuah kacang. Oh, and the free flow of 100 Plus was a very much welcomed gesture. I guess I downed about 2 liters of it altogether.

Thanks to Neo and brothers from Cyclemotion for the ride.
