TEAM VISTA BUKIT PENARA RIDE
On 17-7-2011 morning, Team Vista weekly team event is start to roll. This time is not a fun ride, we decided to challenge a new trail name : Bukit Penara (Penara Hill). Is about 600 meter height from Balik Pulau town to Ayer Itam Dam.The distance of the trail is about 10 km.
At 7.00 am sharp,all the Team Vista riders & cycling friends is start ride from Relau.This event total have 21 cyclist(is glad to see more & more fun cyclist friends enjoy the ride with Team Vista).
We ride Paya Terubong tar road via Tun Sardun to Balik Pulau market.Still the same Tun Sardun is one of the hard road for some rider.At 8.05 am , we all stop at the Balik Pulau market. We all having a rest & get some break fast in the market food store. May be Team Vista always support this coffee store,the boss of the store today gave us a free gift, is a tropical fruit call" Cempedak". Is a nice sweet local fruit,every one love it.This is an additional benefit for this event.
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. Is roughly 35 degree slop all the way.Some of the rider pushing their bike & some of the rider must have 3 stop.We took about an hour to reach the top. Finally.this Bukit Penara Ride completed.
We all took 15 minute rest & start to from Ayer Itam Dam to going home. We use Ayer Itam road via Paya Terubong To Relau. At about 12pm, we all reach Relau & have a final break in Relau market coffee shop. Total distance of this event is 40km,the time we took to completed is about 5 hour.
One of the cycling friends say: luckily i ride with Team Vista,if not i will halfway turn back, because Team Vista is not fast so i can slowly follow.If ,you all speed like pro,i definitely will out of energy because i can't left behind too far from the group.(Ha Ha Ha,Don't worry guys. Team Vista event no matter hard or soft,we only like to Ride For Fun !)
