June 29, 2008 - Botanical Garden 84

Kian Lee is writing...

This morning arrived Youth Park car park (exit area) at 710am, while on the way, Keat SMS me he can't make it. Wait till 720am, CK call and said overslept, so I told him no need to come, I will give myself a try and see how far I can go.

From 0 to 47, its really tough, road is steep, my maximum speed is unable to beyond 4km/h, and some section I paddle in really slow and get a 0km/h. I make a few stops, at 15, 30, 35/37 for a quick rest and recovery, and 44/45 due to miss handle the bike and force to step down, attempt few time to get on the bike, but failed to, end up walk up till 47's hut, rest for few minutes, and pursue for my target 84!

From 47 to 84, the road is not that steep and much more better to cycle.

End up, reach the 84's hut, enjoy the view, fresh and chill air. And downhill back to 0 from 84.

Overall, the weather temperature is nice, chill, around 26~28 degree celsius. Air is fresh as surrounded by the big and tall tree. It took me estimated 1 hour 40 minutes to complete the entire ride, from start, rest and back to the car park.

Pictures time......
