Rider's log No. 14: The Mines

Today is Anas' birthday.

We had planned to go and see him at his school in Batu Kikir, Kuala Pilah, Negeri Sembilan.

We were to start off from home at 11.00am. So, that gave me some time to do my weekend riding. It turned out to be my longest ride so far, distance-wise, as well as, time duration of ride.

Date: 17 May 2008 (Saturday)

Set off/finish time: 6.35am to 8.00am

Total duration: 1 hour 25 minutes

Starting point: Home (Bandar Tun Hussein Onn, Cheras)

Route taken: From BTHO to Tmn Minang Ria, Bdr Damai Perdana, Balakong Industrial Estate, Tmn Sg Besi Indah, The Mines shopping mall Serdang (turning point), Jusco Cheras Selatan, and back home.

Distance covered: 20.5km (personal record!)

Max. speed: 38.6km/h (another record!) - downhill entering Balakong industrial estate

Trail condition: mostly road, plus gravel surface

Uphill/downhill: a few very long stretches which attacked the knees (must be getting old la!)

General notes:
  • no stoppage for pics this time
  • didn't have to get off bike to push it uphill (managed to concur even the meanest & steepest of 'em all - the one near Jusco, but I was panting from there on).
