Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM), Kepong.
With Sri Naga's past experience in FRIM, this hash was more organised... meaning we knew where to go, supposedly... LOL.
This time around, we had Sri Naga, Daniel, Chris, Kevin, Joe and myself. Also, there were no tire puncture and no Astronomy 101 lessons... LOL..
Chris and Kevin were totally newbies to off-road hashing on mountain bikes.... so this was their first time getting a pounding on their ass... :-D As Kevin was a rally driver, he was no stranger to off-road racing and physically more fit. Chris was out of shape and will need a few more hashes like this to get him into gear... LOL...
The hash was made up of some very memorable uphills and downhills. The initial long uphill stretch in the Rover Trail was a surprise for a number of us. We had to push part of the way up, as the pace was not set correctly.
The second uphill, noted as the Steroid climb, was much more steeper but not as long as the uphill in the beginning of the trails. With proper pacing, one can easily take the uphill without any problem.
I wished my bike had full suspension during the downhill... LOL.. The downhill trail was rocky with hardened clay making my bike bounced all over the place... HAhaha... I could not go full speed without losing control of my bike... LOL...
All in all, it was an excellent ride without any injury or breakdown. And as usual, right after a good ride, you are left wanting more... right or not Naga? LOL...
