Steroid Hill's Joggers: Beware!

When there's nowhere else to go, Frim is the answer. However, we were quite dissapointed with the joggers. Would you jog elsewhere other than Steroid Hill? Move! Move! (Ada yang tersondol karang... Rover tak cukup?)

Total of 4 riders turn up for the day. It was the fisrt ride with Miharo after so many weeks. Everybody seems to be busy nowadays, and we're busy calculating our heart rate!

I always once in awhile bring beginners here. Even its a bit tiring, its the best way to check the health of your lungs and heart! Don't be shy to walk or push your bike to the top of the hill :)

Trail Riding: Empangan Batu

When I last visited Empangan Batu or Batu Dam over 5 months ago, the trails was good, slippery and fun as usual. A lot has happened since then. It attracted less and less visitors. Some trails were missing due to overgrown trees and grass. There are too many fallen trees, some lanslides and more ruts all over the place. Not as fun as it used to be.

The only good thing was, I had the opportunity to ride along with Shimano's unofficial unpaid rider Mr. Badoot, and witnessing first hand his newly invented single roller derailleur hehehe...

I have my own invention as well of what I called "Chestcam". However, I had problem with my video editing software, and the footage is not as good as I expected.
