are pics of my Bleriot on her maiden ride thru the Malaysian rain
forest. It's a climb up Fraser's Hill, about 100km away from Kuala
Lumpur. This route has been featured on many Tour de Langkawi stages.
The route meanders around a man made lake before cutting thru the
rain forest. This actually crosses the Main Range which divides
Peninsular Malaysia in half lengthwise. The temperature was around
the low 20s centigrade, very pleasant. This is a watershed of the
area, so the forest is pretty much protected. There are numerous
mountain streams at every turn. Since its the monsoon season now,
plenty of water flowing.
built up pretty much like everybody else, rides very well, stable
during descents, and a brand new chapter in cycling for me...
