2 night rides in a row

It is like a relay race, we kind of take turns to cycle up Ayer Itam Dam. This time around, Kok, Kayong and Kenny joined me for the night ride.

Is this the MTB we saw last night?

Is this the same MTB we saw last night at Kula Bali??

It is back to square one, well, at least for now

The night ride is back after a long interval. This time around, Sam, Kwan, Goh and I cycled up to AID at a relaxing pace. The air was really refreshing and we were the only group up there, but later on joined by the Spidermen Team as we went down to base.

Fighting the flu, sore throat and whooping cough

You don't see that many cyclists these few weeks and the flu is spreading like wild flowers throughout the nation. Coupled with bad haze around the area, more and more cyclists are staying at home. There is another factor though, the weather. It rained like nobody's business during the early part of the week and the wind was so terrifying especially when you are staying at the 24th floor of a condominium.

The past two days, we see cloudy days and I took a ride to Nan Shan the day before yesterday and did a quick ride up to AID yesterday evening where I met up with BK Cheong. 

So, we have decided to build back our stamina and have set tonight and tomorrow night for the come back. I hope the weather stays clear and bright.

Meet up at Kek Lok Si car park at 8:30pm if anyone of you are interested.

Night riding will be safer with REVOLIGHTS

Revolights uses rings of LEDs attached to your bicycle wheels to replace the common headlight.

The LEDs shine white light on the forward wheel and red light on the back. A magnet tracks speed and orientation to control the lights. The LEDs zip around the entire tire when stationary, making your bike hard to miss at night, whether you're rolling or not.

Revolights are bright enough to light up your path while also screaming, "Bicycle!" to any car approaching from your side.

The first batch of Revolights are designed for 700 series road and hybrid rims. A battery charge will get you through four hours of riding time.

Pledge $200 on Kickstarter and you'll get a set of Revolights with an anticipated delivery date of March 2012. The final retail price is expected to be $220.

Knee injury ,Injuries - Everything You Need To Know

The knee joint is the largest joint in the body, consisting of 4 bones and an extensive network of ligaments and muscles. Injuries to the knee joint are amongst the most common in sporting activities and understanding the anatomy of the joint is fundamental in understanding any subsequent pathology.

The knee is made up of four main bones- the femur (thigh bone), the tibia (shin bone), fibula (outer shin bone) and patella(kneecap). The main movements of the knee joint occur between the femur, patella and tibia. Each are covered in articular cartilage which is an extremely hard, smooth substance designed to decrease the frictional forces as movement occurs between the bones. The patella lies in an indentation at the lower end of the femur known as the intercondylar groove. At the outer surface of the tibia lies the fibula, a long thin bone that travels right down to the ankle joint.

The joint capsule is a thick ligamentous structure that surrounds the entire knee. Inside this capsule is a specialized membrane known as the synovial membrane which provides nourishment to all the surrounding structures. Other structures include theinfrapatellar fat pad and bursa which function as cushions to exterior forces on the knee. The capsule itself is strengthened by the surrounding ligaments.

A new steep route to try... and conquer

We heard from a fellow cyclist of a route that will take us from Paya Terubong main road to 1200 Steps temple. So, I rode my little moped and scout the route half way up. This is again a no joke climb with a MTB. The length of the steep slope is longer which will drain our energy if we are not used to conserving strength. I reckon that I will probably take at least 4-5 short intervals to complete the route initially. But then again, to do a "non stop" ride for this route may take more training than usual. The only consolation is that the road is semi tarred and wide. One warning though, I noticed a lot dogs during the evening, so may not be a good idea cycle up in the late afternoon. Here are some of the photos:-

Two nights in Bangkok

1 for Khaw, 50 for me........

It is Khaw's first trip to dreaded Nan Shan Hill whereas for me it is the 50th. Our "Ironman" Khaw tasted the difficulty and the steep slopes of Nan Shan and the Passion Fruit Plantation. Followed by seasoned riders Sam, Kwan, Yong and Yeap, all of us made it to top of PFP after a short break at the Tua Pek Kong shrine which is about 148 years old. Here are some of the photos of the ride:-

1st trip for Khaw

Made it!

Wet CFAL 2011 and Lucky Goh

It was a wet, wet ride this morning for those who participated in the CFAL 2011. It rained heavily all the way and cyclists only managed to enjoy a late morning sunshine towards the end of the route. Overall, the whole ride was simply great for me as it was rather fun than everything else. Due to the heavy rain, we did not manage to take any photos.

I believed that our team was well prepared for the 80km ride as we have cycled averagely long and hard climb rides for the past several weekends. Everyone reached the finish line in the average 4 hours. Well done, team Penang CBCBC!!!

The team enjoyed the event very much despite the heavy downpour and I am sure everyone is looking forward for the next CFAL, hopefully in 2012. And it is for sure that Goh will join without fail as he grabbed a MTB in the lucky draw.

Goh's prize MTB, a Raleigh Elite Pro worth RM 2,000.00 Congratulations bro!!!

More videos to be uploaded soon, stay tuned!!!

Yeoh junior a new addition to PCBCBC

This morning's ride came with a pleasant surprise as Yeoh brought along his son for his maiden ride to AID. Even though he is new to cycling, he made it to AID and later on proceed to Ngoh Hean after a short break at Hilltop. With Yeoh junior starting to ride, I wonder when is Kwan going to bring his son for a ride. Hopefully, soon.
