At nearly 8.45am,all the team rider have arrived (total 14 rider for this event). We start to try this most difficult & hard trail.Heard from some experiences hill climber,total routine have only two rest point. The two rest point name 48 & 84 (the climber also don't know where this code came from,but every climber call that.) When start we already have to climb nearly 40 degree slop tar road. The slop is all the way(no flat land at all)& a lot of shard corner,some slop we feel that is nearly 60 degree. We all using nearly 30 minute to reach the first rest point(that's 48).We have two rider due to took their breakfast heavily & feeling not well(That is our team captain Ken & rider Tan).We took 20 minute to rest & let both of them to recover, after that we start to climb again.
From 48 to second rest point 84 is not that slop,but is still no flat land for us. We used about 15 minute to reach the second rest point 84. We stop at 84 to wait for the slow comer.In 84 rest point,that's serve a free drink & free coffee.Only thing is after drink you can donate some money that you like.This is to support for this rest point to keep on duty for all the hill climber & morning walker.We all using 20 minute in 84 & start to challenge the final trail.This time we all feel more energy(may be after have a cup of coffee in 84). Every one try their very best to finish the journey. At 10.50am,finally we all reach the top of Penang Island.Is feel great,we can view the whole Penang island like using a bird view,is really beautiful.This Sunday got a lot of tourist here.We also ask some tourist help us to took our group photo.One group of Taiwanese tourist invite us go to Taiwan to cycling with them,they say that they know Team Vista & very happy can meet us in Penang hill.
This week event is not an easy ride,but is not a difficult ride also.We all feel happy & have a lot of fun in the journey.For Team Vista,this is another type of Ride For Fun too.
