hi Jimmy, Thanks. I will tag along with neoterrjoe first then to see how to link with you at marsiling MRT.

Hi Neoterrjoe, Sure I can meet you at CCK link and Stagmont Ring before the woodland, at PCN crossing. May we can establish a time to meet. My Mobile = 8228 0807 and hope to get your mobile for link up and timing as well.

Thank again

Everyone make sure install your front(white) and rear(red) light with new bat. You need to put ON on the return ride when back to JB town.

If you need to fine tune your bike or whatever adjustment to be done, pls do it and test it and make sure it work for the entire ride. Sat morning 0645hrs is ready to ROCK. Don't worry for BF, water point or ...all planed. Condition your body by drinking more water drunken on Friday(whole day) and eat as normal for your meal(don try crazy food 2 days before the trip Evil or Very Mad ) and go to bed early Sleep on Friday night.

Cheers.. lol!

hi All,

I was planning to take my dahon MU24 (20in) but realised the BB had worn out. I left with my Friday tikit 16 inches which I can ride for 4-5 hours for 90km. Just wanted to check if I am ok to ride with the group using tikit. Hope to get some advice here. thanks

Aiksiong,
If confirm your dahon BB had worn out, bring to the bike shop and replace it. it won't take you much time to replace the BB and after that u should more confidence on your dahon.
For your tikit, only the owner can tell how the limit of the bike can take it together with owner handling during the ride. No one can tell you the correct answer. This same if I tell u I can go with my market bike, will u buy my ideal? Wink
So, my advise bring your confidence weapon for your battle.

Cheer... lol!

Saw the need to inform more about the accident which I believed many have already heard to serve more as an educational purpose for future local/overseas rides.. This is tj/guy riding the f moser..

I was the first to attend to the rider after he fell. Rider was using a BF tikit, has experience road riding at pengarang coast with some experience of the kukup route the day before. Although I didnt witness what exactly caused him to fall, another rider saw vigorous wobbling of the handle bar before he went down. The road was smooth without potholes but was a downhill with some gradient. The rider suffered a head impact and superficial hand injuries with some short term memory loss and quite an amount of blood loss but was conscious enough to stand by himself. A kind local driver sent him to a nearby clinic with Nick's accompany and now under observation.

After much discussion with the rider himself and other more experienced riders, KC, Patrick and others, we concluded that the rider did not have enough experience with the bike for such long distances and due to the nature of the bike having small wheels travelling at significant speeds, the chance of a fall becomes greater due to increased sensitivity of the small turn of the handlebar. I also observed the rider's tendency to sway from leftmost road towards the middle during the trip probably to avoid the potholes and to keep view of the road ahead.

Some pointers from the leader and experienced riders:
1. Refrain from travelling beyond certain speeds for small wheelers.
2. Tighten the headset to stiffen the steering
3. Avoid using a bike you do not have enough experience with
4. Stay behind the leader if you are not experienced with the road or with long distances.
5. Keep a distance from the immediate front rider especially at fast speeds and bad roads so you have sufficient reaction time. Inform your immediate rear rider not to tailgate too.

More pointers to add from others?

Thanks and ride safe.

It was a great ride with you guys, great companions, very well organised, excellent leaderships, good food and great experience. I see great comradeship supporting and helping each other. I learn about the importance of having bike properly maintained and carrying some essential spare parts and tools for such long rides in overseas, I see the good, positive attitude of fellow riders following instructions from the leaders, enduring the pains, the tough terrains, smiling all the way and encouraging each other. This is the kind of attitude, friendships, leaderships we need for a long ride like this and this is what make it fun, enjoyable and precious.

Thank you Patrick for your great leadership. Thank you Eric, Clarence, Zack, Boo and Shareen for helping with safety, ride order etc. Thank you all for the fabulous companionship... making this ride wonderful.. I had a great time... THANK YOU!!
