Dead tired from the ride, finally a post! If you are interested in the trail that we went… A word of warning though, we couldn’t really follow the marked out trail via GPS… So we just locked onto a direction and rode in plantations! Fun!

There were some really nice views, a nice break away from urban Singapore.

Not long before entering the trails, we started to smell something unpleasant… And eventually came across the source…

And the guy herding the cows was riding a motorbike! He helped as clear the way 🙂 Although there were many freshly deployed land mines ahead!

Heading in a direction with no visible trail ahead meant overcoming certain obstacles along the way! Teamwork! Barbed wire fences, steep loose rocky slopes, beautiful moss covered palm plantations, mad dogs that chase you, scorching open lands, etc!

Notice the rubber tube tied around the tree trunk? I used it to help me climb the many slopes we encountered! But little did I know…

I was pricked by this little caterpillar! Many thorns were in my skin and I was screaming like a girl when I pulled them out… One. By. One. Ouch!

The ride was great with good food too! Macdonalds breakfast, KFC lunch, Cendol break, Prata dinner, Nasi Goreng Supper. Covered about 130km according to my friend’s speedo! Legs are still tired!

It has been some 5 1/2 months without offroad, and yesterday (after 12mn mah) was my first time at TBP after so long… The course is rougher at some points, due to soil erosion and wear and tear (Esp from the recent 12 hour MTB race.)… While other points are had more grass growing and seemed smoother… En route to the jungle trail, my friend and I had a little fun trying to get air… Such a feeling! The jungle trail is pretty swampy, but still ridable… Except for some fallen trees and mud pools.

Life’s good when school’s out! Cheers!

I just saw a similarity, although distant… Both had white blue black theme and offroad capability. I miss the thrill of going offroad!
