Today 5th Sept 2008 received information about KLD (Kuala Lumpur Downtown) . Aiyah now dunno which one to go. Both event clash at the same time.
17th - 19th October 2008
M.U.D.D From PCC
Since no one actually drop dead last year riding the MNS/BOH to Pos Terisu route, we’ve decided to add another 7 kilometers (of tarmac) and to reverse the loop!
Of course, there’s good reason to reverse the ride. Instead of ending at Sekolah Pos Terisu and staying the night over, which is a logistical nightmare, riders will now end the ride where they started ie: MNS/BOH Chalets.
So going by that, the ride will be broken up into three phases.
Phase 1: The warm up.
Ride from MNS/BOH Chalet to the BOH Tea House. Here, the riders and bicycles will be transported to Batu 49 Junction, after the town of Tringkap.
Phase 2: The Ride
Riders will ride the 7km tarmac to Sekolah Pos Terisu. This is the added 7km. From the school, we’ll descend sharply to Big River where we’ll have a major regroup. A couple of hundred meters after Big River is the last clear stream for a water refill. Filtration device recommended! From Big River, we expect to reach metal bridge crossing where we had our lunch break last year just before lunch. We’ll have another break and regroup here.
Then we’ll carry on to Pos Telanuk. Why is this place special? 1st, it’s lunchbreak. 2nd It’s the lowest point of the ride at a mere 700feet. So far the ride has been roughly 80% downhill with a massive net elevation loss of
3300feet. (4000ft at Bt 49, 700 feet at Pos Telanuk)
Which means only one thing, a long slow grind up to the MNS/Boh Chalet sitting at lofty at 4250 feet. Pray for overcast skies because it’s payback time!
Phase 3: Payback
Er, um, ah. You know what this means. More than 3300 feet of climbing. We expect the last rider to be in at MNS/Boh Chalet at 4pm.
What’s the deal?
To secure the entire MNS/Boh premises for two nights, pay for transportation of bikes and participants to Bt. 49 junction and to supply the post ride food binge, we’re charging RM100 per head. Cheap holiday la.
Places are limited. So, put your name on the list, preferably with your entrance fee of RM100.
Who to call?
Get in touch with James 012-3458204/Peter 012-2274443 to let PCC know you are coming.
