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

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
forgot to bring my slippers so I bought one at the first stop

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
lunch sumwer north of KL (my good facebooks Francis and Michel)

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
pinakawalan kami sa base ng Fraser hill

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
sobrang excited kami

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
after 1km of climb... (not excited anymore) help!!!

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
the road leveled off at the dam (legs still OK)

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
nagkawatak-watak kami sa incline.

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
malayo pa ang umaga
then
everybody broke loose

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
caught up with some (pacing pacing) on the long, steady and gradual climb

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
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

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
when the gate opened.
all hell broke loose and found myself climbing alone (pacing pacing)

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
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)

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
basa and sapatos namin kaya linagyan namin ng newspaper sa loob (bai grepo tip)

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
then power nap muna b4 dinner

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
at dinner...
i immediately ordered a coke (kuntador laspag teknik)

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
next morning it was quite foggy on the top

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
we were getting ready for the gate down the one way GAP is about to open (8am)

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
i followed the fast group down the snaky wet road and couldn't match their downhill skills
so i found myself riding alone

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
back to the dam near the base

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
the roads were dry so I was confident to speed up

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
view on the right

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
go go go

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
was able to see some of the riders a few minutes after i pressed the pedals

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
whew! pagod. (i really need a cycling psychologist to cure my downhill phobia)

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
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

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
riding alone (i can see the bldgs of Genting on that faraway hill)

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
ok 30kms exactly away daw

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
the road started to slightly incline

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
pacing pacing pacing patience patience patience dont hammer

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
i put my hand on the top of the hoods for more leverage

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
looked at the computer and just at my tempo pace

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
kaso parang hindi tempo kasi mukhang demonyo na ako

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
luckilly the climbs are steady (21T lang kc ang spraket ko)

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
kaya ko toh!!! LASPAG NA AKO!!!

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
practiced meditating (mindless pedalling)

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
then a milestone disturbed my rhythm

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
but was envigorated when i saw the Genting cable car station
(halfway there!!!)

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
pacing pacing pacing was my mantra

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
the air was a little cold even though the sun was high
genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
started the main climb (hehehe memorize ko ang mga daya dito)

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
endured a steep section
then was rewarded a flat recovery portion (as i expected)

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
then steep sections na naman ulit

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
plus bad roads

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
and was rewarded again with a recovery portion

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
900meters to go... (i was suffering)

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
then i gave up at 100m to the top LASPAG!!!!!!!!!

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
waited at the entrance for my facebooks

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
the entrance to Genting again

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
my horsey was resting. he had a long day

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
climb plot ~1600m ata

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
then all was in after two hours of waiting for the scattered riders (dami daw stops) picture2x

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
ate and drank alot at a nearby coffeeshop

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
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

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
me with my facebooks on a recovery ride uphill... pasyal pasyal

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
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

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
i guess somebody bonked first and scattered some thumbtacks tactics :D ](*,)

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
and away we go under the sun
across the rolling country

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
rode the expressway to Genting Sempah (1/3 to genting)

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
shet nahati ang grupo kasi may makating paa

genting fraser trip w/ JR Pbucket
ended up getting dropped by the monsters
malapit na ang umaga!
