After cancelling the round Penang Island ride last night, the team quickly responded to the change of trail. This time, The Carpet at Sungai Ara. This trail has been explored by the team several occasions and it proved to be a great ride. Moreover, we were guided by Lau and Jacky to the "Blue House" and "The Bungalow". Thank you, Jacky and Lau!! Now we have two more new destination to venture!!
A short rest before going up to the "Blue House", actually the Blue House has been demolished and converted into a farm plot.
From here on wards, it is single track with steep hills, takes lots of balancing to be able to ride all the way up. Once reached the top, we decided to do a reverse instead of going down to Balik Pulau because no one was sure about the trail towards the destination.
Here are some photos contributed by Sam, Kwan, Yeap....Enjoy!!
