Our ride started at 9.30am, all the way up to the water pump house and tried part of the 4K trail. After reaching the cross road we decided to explore another trail which later we found out to be part of the 2K trail. A good downhill ride with a lot of switchback. We did not do the entire loop and come back to the cross road again and we met up with 2 downhill riders Wan and Rizal. Wan is the dude who build the Great Wall of Kiara and Rizal is one of the top 5 Downhill riders in Malaysia.
We joined Wan and Rizal on the ascend to the Twin Towers trail. This is where the downhill dudes do their jumping and all sorts of stunts. Rizal showed us how he tackle some cool jumps and also demonstrate how to jump on a ramp. Man he is real fast. We spend nearly 30 minutes watching Rizal did jump after jump. Apparently this is how they practice and perfected their jumps.

The downhill ride here is much longer than Bukit Cermin. Overall there are more stuff to explore here compared to Bukit Cermin and you also have more riders here which can be helpful when asking for directions or in case you get lost in the middle of the trail. I have been riding in Kiara at least 7 times already and still haven’t explored 70% of the trail here.
Overall a must for every geek to at least try out Kiara once in their riding lifetime. It’s also a good training ground to increase one’s stamina and riding skills.
