Yin Fan, our tough newbie

I took Yin Fan for a test ride 2 weeks ago since she had a new MTB a Trek 4900. She cycled quite frequently with her foldie and we were all afraid that she may not be able to cope with the gear shifting, the brakes and the suspensions all at once.

The most drastic change was from a 8 speed to a 30 speed mechanism. Well, the only way to gauge her was to take her cycling with her new toy, playing around with gears, feeling the MTB as well. 

After two rounds around the inner path of AID, we decided to do the ultimate test. Cycling up a steep slope from the PBA bungalow to the AID parking lot. Despite being new to all these, Yin Fan managed to cycle up on her own, without stopping, and the best part was she was asking for another round. 

It was then, I knew she would conquer AID hill (from Kek Lok Si to AID parking lot) without a problem. So, last Sunday, the weather was great, blue skies in the morning, CBCBC team accompanied Yin Fan to the top. 

And we were all so proud of her for taking the challenge and succeed. From the parking lot, we cycled up to Hilton and proceed to Balik Pulau. It was the first experience for Yin Fan, but she showed guts going downhill to Balik Pulau food court and back again to AID after a short break. 

 She is really tough, well much tougher than all of us thought. Well done, Yin Fan!! Here are some photos taken by the members during the ride:-
