Venue: Kampung Sungai Tekali. Near Klinik Desa Sungai Tekali

The starting point shall be near to Sekolah Kebangsaan Sungai Tekali. The whole trail is rideable thus there is no need to hike a bike. You will ride through malay kampung, rubber plantation, durian orchards, ﬁsh ponds and also lush green forest. There will also be a river crossing. Part of this trail was used for the recent Dusun Tua Jamboree last year. So please stay on paper, do not follow other type of markers that will be distracting you on the trail.
THE LONG RIDE
The long ride will be around 20 km if you don’t get lost. It’ll be scenic, nothing too technical and it has some awesome downhill, deﬁnitely a lot of fun factor. Elevation will be a gentle 450m ish.
THE SHORT RIDE
This will be approx. 7 km, very child friendly (especially designed for kids!). It’s on concrete, tarmac and singletracks through orchards and rubber tree plantations. Not enough? Ride it twice, and beat the first ride’s time!
The short can be done by children but must be accompanied by an adult. Elevation is a friendly 150m only.
WHAT TO BRING
Please, please do not underestimate your water and solids rations, resorting to the streams or muddy puddles is not a good idea. We recommend you bring an absolute minimum of 3 litres of water (if it’s a hot day), insect repellent, spare tube(s) and a good sense of humor.
When parking, you can park at the open area behind the mosque (where the KLMBH’s canopy will be), along the road shoulders and at the school’s parking area. These 3 places are near to each other. Wherever you park, be sure to park neatly. There are many warungs there, where you can get/buy food/water supply before the ride.
TIPS FOR THE RIDE
Extra liquid is highly advisable
Electrolytes or solid food are recommended if you’re a mediocre rider
Stay on paper!!! If you ride and you are off paper, please do the right thing and back track to pick up paper and follow paper!! No one will come to rescue you!
