Adrenaline had started pumping in the morning. Why? Because its CYCLING + TREE PLANTING day!

After some dreadful last minute revision for our final examination papers, this event was certainly the best retreat for me and my coursemate, Samantha.

It was a real exciting 14 km ride! We couldn’t believe that we did it! I was lucky to have this experience thanks to Samantha’s  landcruiser that managed to transport our two mountain bikes!

Clad with professional skin tight cycling jersey and helmet, people from all walks of life, be it young or old, assembled at the starting point with various model of bicycle: foldable, mountain bike, BMX bike, racing bike, you name it!

Luckily Sam snapped lots of photos, which makes story telling easier. 

So here we roll!

 

Saturday morning with CYCLING enthusiast!

We both were the ugly duckling or should I say the outstanding one: Jeans her; helmet-less and ubber shoe me; while everyone else dressed professionally.

Woot! Its me! Here's a story. As I was cycling using gear 7,- a knowledge I just learned from Sam that high gear is recommended for flat road - a kind cyclist approached to tell me about my slightly flatten back tire. Ooops, no wonder it took me so much effort to pedal.

And sampai sudah at the finishing line! Parked our bike in the most romantic way and then we bustled to the canopy for food!

Sampai sudah at the finishing line! Parked our bike in the most romantic way and then we bustled to the canopy for food! Hopefully throughout that 14 km ride, we managed to spread the message to people that IT IS OKAY TO CYCLE ON MAI ROADS AND YOU SHOULD JOIN US TOO! Hehehe!

After we recharged, real business was on. Planting the BIG guy. Woot!
