Salam Tahun Baru 1431 Hijrah/ January 2009

Assalamualaikum dan Salam Sejahtera, Isnin Lalu umat Islam seluruh dunia telah menyambut Awal Muharram dan besok bagi kalendar orang puteh tahun 2009 akan menjenguk tiba. Di kesempatan ini NXTeam ingin memanjatkan kesyukuran atas kurniaan Illahi atas limpah dan kurniaNya kita masih dapat berkayuh bersama-sama. Tahun 1431Hijrah/2009 diharap Silaturrahim yang sedia terjalin akan lebih kukuh dan elakkanlah pergeseran sesama kita. Let us unite and make this earth a better and harmonious place to live. NXTeam berharap selepas ini lebih banyak aktiviti kayuhan yang berobjektifkan persahabatan/Silaturrahim dapat dirancang dan dilaksanakan. Buangkanlah sengketa yang menjadi pengeruh suasana dan kita tukar dengan air yang suci dan boleh memberi manfaat kepada semua.
RIDE SAFELY AND INTELLIGENTLY

Silaturrahim Ride - Thanks! to everybody.

As early as 7:45am few riders are seen at Ulu Pauh area. The objective is crystal clear which are to ride the Ulu Pauh - Bukit Rawa Trail and secondly to get to know each other closely. The rolling time was extended from the planned time which was at 8:15am to 9:00am and this is due to some riders who got lost while getting to the meeting point. Praise to Allah The Almighty that everything went well.
Details are as follows:
Riders : 51
Distance : 29km (according to Adie Harriman)
Start : 9:00am
Complete : 1:00pm

Cikgu Mawardi - next time make sure to bring enough fluid.

It's time to go back to the real world.
Conclusion:
The ride can be considered as successful. 51 riders are a scary turned up for NXTeam but we tried our best to fulfill what is required in order to achieve satisfaction. Alhamdulillah there were no major mishap and injuries except for chan NXT who misjudge the pavement before the ride which lead to mini summersault and Mat Kedah slipped while crossing the drain and don't worry ...."His bike is okay, escaped unharm..."
Highest gratitude to riders from Bintong, Perlis MTB, GTG, Bang Lee & Family, Mat Kedah, Adie Harriman, Redflag, Soo Beng MTBers, Jitra, Changloon and etc for making this ride happened. To Abg Ron, thanks for the support during the trail maintenance and we understand your situation for not turning up and to NXTeam thank you for the commitment, this is a proof that nothing is impossible, when there's a will - ther's a way.
Let Us Get United - together we as One.

Bukit Kodiang

At the roti canai stall. Location : Pauh

Manage to sit together with another rider. He (middle) is more to MTB on road.


The ride begins ......


Ascends ....... more are waiting ahead!


Couple of snaps before the ride continues .....


Veyrone and Balqis.

Up .... up ...... and lets push the bike!


Nice scenenery. Wasn't sure the altitude but what i can say is just
it is above most of the hills.


This reminds me of an Old School "rock kapak" band pin-up poster.


The track is wide enough for necessary overtaking and obstacle avoiding.


Cik On ....... "there are few more climbs ahead ....."
Chan ..... " Really ....... waaaa!!! ..."

Hmm .... Loose gravel, really need to be skillful to pass this part.




I reached the pre-peak location first. Hehehe...

Hazy still, the weather was on our side that day.
Ck. Own with the well known approach. MTB = Mari Tolak Basikal
Veyrone still struggling to succeed the climb. Well done!



Bang Mat ... " nice and challenging trail ..... a sure comeback ..."








Flag of Glory. We made it!




Bg Mat helping Veyrone who did a noble job of acknowledging
fellow riders about broken tree branch and he accidently plunged
himself while doing that.
