>>>THANKS TO BLOGGER KEMBARAKITA
>> Ride Synopsis:
This is an exciting out-and-back along a single track trail that follows a pre-war water pipe 15 kilometres into the foothills of the Main Range. no serious climbs or technical downhill. But ... (somehow, there is always a 'but' in all MTB rides!) there are some gravel and loose stones most of the way! Otherwise it would have been a real easy and relaxed trail for everyone to enjoy. Most of the way, cycling next to this great river. In fact, this is one of the cleanest river you can find. Crystal clear water and no mud unlike most of the sad and pathetic river in Malaysia! Passing through an orang asli settlement is another surprising discovery here.Finally, the end of the trail - an eye opener! The old mini-hydro station, which was, built in the year 1982. These two building stand here and is so much older than me! The amazing thing is that it is still operating and according to the caretaker, it is still used to generate electricity for the tin miners down river.
