Hulu Tamu Ride Photos

Hulu Tamu ride 14th Feb 2009 - I think the most memorable ride we have ever done todate. 7 of us , Eddy, Fariq, Fazrul, Rosli, Din Subang, Ilyias and me. Others could not make it.

Almost everything went wrong in the morning, and we only reached Hulu Tamu Hotsprings at 11.15 am. We started cycling at 11.30. Reached the top at 2.30. Fazrul went on ahead the orang asli trail up to the waterfalls. The rest rested below, victim of 3 punctures, two tire changes and at least 3 leech bites each.

Back to the Hot springs at 4.30. Anyway, pictures speak for themselves. This should have been posted at least a week ago, but I had to learn how to resize photos because 3 cameras were used.
