Kayuhan Jelapang Padi 2010 Review

22 May, 2010


Sekalung tahniah kepada Jabatan Belia dan Sukan Negeri Kedah selaku penganjur Kayuhan Jelapang Padi 2010 kerana dengan jayanya menganjurkan temasya ini yang cukup memuaskan hati. Walaupun ini kali pertama penganjuran, perjalanan aktiviti berjalan dengan lancar. Tahniah juga kepada KBS MTB Team yang berdiri teguh dibelakang penganjuran ini.

Sejak awal pukul 5 pagi, hujan turun dengan lebat disekitar Alor Setar. Bersempena dengan nama Kayuhan Jelapang Padi dan laluan juga disekitar kawasan bendang, inilah peluang para pengayuh merasakan nikmat turun ke bendang dan bergelumang dengan lumpur. Jersey yang dipakai memang macam orang baru balik dari bendang, penuh terpalit kelebog dan lumpur dan boleh dibuat kain buruk.

Kayuhan kali ini cukup laju. Kebanyakan riders yang menyertai kayuhan ini hebat hebat dan berpengalaman belaka. Tak ada seorangpun yang aku nampak menolak basikal kecuali yang pancit tayar. Tak ada seorang pun yang berhenti kat CP duduk minum air. Semua yang aku tengok macam professional riders. Pukul 10.30 pagi hampir 80% riders dah menamatkan kayuhan sampai pihak penganjur terpinga pinga sebab nasi belum sampai lagi. Nasib baik ada gerai koay teow kat dalam tu boleh juga sendal perut sementara menunggu nasi sampai. Begitulah perihal kelajuan kayuhan ini.

Pihak penganjur menyediakan hadiah kepada riders yang mendapat kedudukan 1-5. Nombor 1-2 dibolot oleh Team Giant Sin Boon Seng Yan sementara no 3 oleh Khairi007 dan 4-5 dibolot oleh Team MSN Kedah. Syabas juga kepada Team Gerek Baru yang kebanyakannya mendapat kedudukkan dibawah 50.

Bukit Tunjang The Hidden Trail

05 May, 2010


During my childhood, I used to trek Bukit Tunjang every durian season with all the villagers. We will bring all the foods and supplies for a day long picnic in the uphill. The owners of the dusun will collect all the durian and all the villagers can have a taste of the fruits. It was like a small fiesta uphill. As the time goes by, it was just a sweet memory left.

At the peak of Bukit Tunjang, there was a big stone for about the size of a car named Batu Tok Putih. I never saw it because the adult would made a lot of reasons not to bring us to the place. I was told the stone was keramat, haunted and lots of people went to make a wishes. Now as I speak to several villagers, they said the stone never exist and people at the time just made up the story. Is it true or they just want to deny it?

I know from my chilhood memory, there were lots of beautiful trail suitable for mountainbike inside Bukit Tunjang. The trail up and down connecting the dusun like a spider web. I started to gather some information from the villagers who were familiar with the inside of the area. As a start, I choosed the south side of the hill because it was close to the main road.

I can't believe it from my eyes. How come I neglected this place before? I never see the beautiful trail like this before. The inside are soo cool where the trail cut through the durian trees, some climbing and long downhill perfectly blended. Unfortunately, the trail a bit short. I am still thinking the way to connect the south side with the north side. From information, the north side trail is much longer and challenging. The trail can be connected to the dusun area in Bukit Padang Perahu.

I believe, what I have seen only 5% of the picture. So, all the mountainbikers in this area, are you all ready for the next mission?

Kayuhan Terang Malam Kulim Review

02 May, 2010


Overall the organizer had done a very good job. There were enough signage and lots of LED light to guide you in the jungle. Also a very friendly crews to warn you of any obstacles. The refill water stations also were put at a strategic location. Nothing more to ask.

The trail especially a long climbimg in the oilpalm plantation was a bit sticky and muddy especially in this rainy season. Most riders unable to ride in this condition and prefer to push their bike. The downhill part also very dangerous and again not many riders wanted to take the risk and called it "Kayuhan Tolak Malam". If the condition was dry and nonsticky, the long climbing and downhil part will be the most thrill and challenging. Other than this part, all ridable. I think the best part of the trail was a downhill in between the rubber trees with the guidance of LED lights with several drops crossing the roots.

Well done to the organizer
