Back to Klang, I've gathered Bro Farid, Bro Wahid and Wak Rusni to ride along in Kuala Linggi. Bro Farid immediately agreed, so do Wak Rosni but unfortunately Bro Wahid couldn't join us.
Saturday Dec 11
As planned the trip to Kuala Linggi take off after Zohor on Saturday. Since the distance to Kuala Linggi only about 2 hours we re lazily drive and enjoy the evening view along the way. Stop at Port Dickson for coffee break for half an hour. We continued the journey to KUIM for registration and goodies collection.

Sunday Dec 12
Early in the morning we had check out and get ready at the KUIM. Reassemble and tune the bikes, warming up and having a very light breakfast before the ride. Then suddenly a car park in next to our van. Annuar Manan came out. Wow, now we have an immediate result for todays jamboree. On my last check he is not in the participant list and total are only 465 riders. When I check back this morning at the registration counter, the list sky up to 700 participants. Not bad, in the middle of big event in Penang and Johor,Kuala Linggi had put his remark. Well done.
Reunite with other riders from Klang Valley

First phase on the trail are considered easy with 10km tarmac and 10km offroad. But there were spaces for organizer to improve on safety aspect, especially while riders are on the road. They should put crews on every junctions to block other traffickers entering the main road. It is only 10km and could estimate around 15 minutes for riders to clear from starting point to last junction before entering the offroad trail.

Local villagers come out and give supports
Bukit Tangki - high and dry
Offroad segment of the jamboree are cover with palm oil plantation, rubber estate, single trail, bushes area and open field. Every of them give their own challenge for riders to pass thru, averagely ridable. The highest point of the ride is Bukit Kembar 3 Beradik peak. When there is climb, there must be downhill. Sad to say, the downhill in this jamboree rated 2 out of 5 from my personal rating. In terms of height, length and subject difficulty. I just ask for sufficient length of downhill, compare to the climb that riders had did.
Another high climb is Bukit Tangki near the beach of Pengkalan Balak. It serve the view of Malacca Straight and it surrounding area from top. Hence it was almost midday, I don't spend too long here. Rush down to the next water station via most vertical downhill. At last .. Thanks
Entering Eco Nusa Dusun, another few kilometers to complete
