After 30 minute,we all start to go to the Bukit Penara. This trail is totally new to all of us, only our team sweeper Chew been here before.The trail is really hard, from  ground already starting slope all the way to the top.

At around 9am we  reach Balik Pulau Market,thats a place that a lot of cyclist drop by to have their break fast or rest point.

It take about 30 minuet we all finish our break fast & start to go.The way from Relau to Balik Pulau is easy,but the way back is a bit challenge to all the cyclist.Due to we must cross a very slop Tun Sardun road ( about 45 degree & 5km)to Relau.This road is not easy must use your skill & patience to reach the top.About 35 minute we all safely reach there.
