This is what we waited for since 2 weeks ago, the challenge to the famous “Carpet” cycling route in Sg. Ara there.
We have some delay due to front wheel not able to mount it back after dismantled when transferring the bike by car from Bagan to Penang island here. But this doesn’t impact our determination to conquer the route today.
We ride from Nipah Emas Apartment to restaurant Nasi Kandar Dinas (about 4.5km) and have a sip of teh tarik before the tough cycling.
For those the first time to look for this route like us, you can easily notice this Tamil Temple just beside the entry of the route.
We are heading to the greenery environment. Found a lot of durian tree planted here and the smell of durian is so strong especially during this durian season. We are durian kaki, so no problem to adapt it.
We pass by the wooden bridge. This is the bridge that we will coming out from there later when we complete the route.
The nature ambience sound of river and bird in the morning. So relaxing…
Let’s selfie at river side…
Can you see the big Lizard on the tree?
Found Fig Tree Hill resort in there. Luxuriate in the tranquillity. Wow…
We realise that we have go too deep in the route there that link to Kampung Shee Tan. Better U turn.
Good experience cycling in greenery hill here…we are nearly exhausted after few round of wrong ways but still enjoy…he.he..
Here come another challenge! Biker always hate to meet dog during cycling. Can you see the dog is blocking the road there? We understand from Chinese Proverbs “Good Dog Never Block The Road”, lets go through it…
See, we have success overcome it. You can notice the dog is so disappointed that fail to block us….
The path is narrow and steep at the side, we ride slow and steady.
Finally, we reach the wooden bridge and we know that we almost complete the route.
