genting fraser trip w/ JR

Post  kumagako on Tue Apr 13, 2010 11:23 am

share ko lang


daybreak on a bus w/ the Joyrider cycling club to Fraser hill (400+km north of SG)


forgot to bring my slippers so I bought one at the first stop


lunch sumwer north of KL (my good facebooks Francis and Michel)


pinakawalan kami sa base ng Fraser hill


sobrang excited kami


after 1km of climb... (not excited anymore) help!!!


the road leveled off at the dam (legs still OK)


nagkawatak-watak kami sa incline.


malayo pa ang umaga
then
everybody broke loose


caught up with some (pacing pacing) on the long, steady and gradual climb


then got at the "GAP" after an hour of suffering
(the GAP is the one way road up Fraser hill 9km... odd hours up. even hours down)
so wait muna kami b4 they open the gate


when the gate opened.
all hell broke loose and found myself climbing alone (pacing pacing)


after 30+ minutes of suffering
got at the hotel safe but freezing cold from the rain

altitude 1390+m ASL 42km from the base (kuala kubu)


climb plot


basa and sapatos namin kaya linagyan namin ng newspaper sa loob (bai grepo tip)


then power nap muna b4 dinner


at dinner...
i immediately ordered a coke (kuntador laspag teknik)


next morning it was quite foggy on the top


we were getting ready for the gate down the one way GAP is about to open (8am)


i followed the fast group down the snaky wet road and couldn't match their downhill skills
so i found myself riding alone


back to the dam near the base


the roads were dry so I was confident to speed up


view on the right


go go go


was able to see some of the riders a few minutes after i pressed the pedals


whew! pagod. (i really need a cycling psychologist to cure my downhill phobia)


the group decided to stop for a rest after 40+km
but i dnt want to stop
i told them that ill head off to Genting alone


riding alone (i can see the bldgs of Genting on that faraway hill)


ok 30kms exactly away daw


the road started to slightly incline


pacing pacing pacing patience patience patience dont hammer


i put my hand on the top of the hoods for more leverage


looked at the computer and just at my tempo pace


kaso parang hindi tempo kasi mukhang demonyo na ako


luckilly the climbs are steady (21T lang kc ang spraket ko)


kaya ko toh!!! LASPAG NA AKO!!!


practiced meditating (mindless pedalling)


then a milestone disturbed my rhythm


but was envigorated when i saw the Genting cable car station
(halfway there!!!)


pacing pacing pacing was my mantra


the air was a little cold even though the sun was high

started the main climb (hehehe memorize ko ang mga daya dito)


endured a steep section
then was rewarded a flat recovery portion (as i expected)


then steep sections na naman ulit


plus bad roads


and was rewarded again with a recovery portion


900meters to go... (i was suffering)


then i gave up at 100m to the top LASPAG!!!!!!!!!


ayun yung entrada


waited at the entrance for my facebooks


the entrance to Genting again


my horsey was resting. he had a long day


climb plot ~1600m ata


then all was in after two hours of waiting for the scattered riders (dami daw stops) picture2x


ate and drank alot at a nearby coffeeshop


I planned to cycle back kaso I wasn't able to get the cut-off time
(mahirap abutan ng dilim sa MY. walang ILAW)
so i rode the bus home


me with my facebooks on a recovery ride uphill... pasyal pasyal


on the next morning we went for the downhill on the other side of Fraser hill
the pace was hard for me to hang on.
luckilly :skeptical: may na flat at naka rest


i guess somebody bonked first and scattered some thumbtacks tactics :D ](*,)


and away we go under the sun
across the rolling country


rode the expressway to Genting Sempah (1/3 to genting)


shet nahati ang grupo kasi may makating paa


ended up getting dropped by the monsters
malapit na ang umaga!


then i came alone but I survived
need lots of training for me.


altitude plot


kain kain... anti-laspag(bonk)


raised my cramped legs most of the time on the way back home to SG
