After a long long period of no outdoor cycling, I decided to join the Jom Kayuhhh event organised by Bacin, Azwar and Co. The proposed route was Bt 14-Peres-Titi-Bt14.
All together there were 30 odd cyclist riding together, or rather partially together since the fitness level within the group were scattered. I was very well at the tail end of the whole lot.
We started climbing Peres at approximately 0840. Reached the top after about 1h 10m. We were supposed to continue to Titi but at the top the group split with some heading towards Tekala. And I decided to follow the Tekala group.
It was great to clock some mileage albeit a low one but some of the climbs did help me realised that the phrase 'sakit tapi sedap' is very much true to a large extent.
Right now, I am looking forward to have some mechanical upgrade done on the bike in order I can have a better gear ratio to help me on the climb. Climbing has never been my favourite, flats are tiring as well, downhill I like...haha..
Looking forward to the upgrade done by end of the year. Anyone would now if a 9 speed cassette with 12-25 ratio is still available in the market?
