The four of us did the KD Community Forest ride today. Amid worries that we might get lost as there was a record of lost trekkers, we came out fine. We went in at about 9.30 am and exited at about 10.45 am. Based on the advise of Cikgu Harun, a teacher at the school fronting the forest, we took the entrance beside the lake.
It was push push push all the way up before we could cycle. At one point I was rather worried that we may not even be able to cycle in there. But all is well that ends well. The uphill climb was for about slightly more than a kilometre before it was downhill ride.
The downhil was fabulous, Fariq loved it as did Dr Kahirul and Din. I faced problems with my handle stems or rather horns as they frequently got caught in hanging vines.
All in all, I estimate the route was about 4 to 5 kilometres. No accuracy though as cyclometer was not on.
Dr Khairul and Din wanted to do another loop but we decided to postpone it for next week. We'll do a gotong royong to clean the place up first.
