Editor’s Note

I’ve been meaning to join a running event in Malacca for quite some time; so, when my friend invited me to this NEW ONE in Alor Gajah, I replied, “Malacca & Pink Jumbo, here I come! “.

Since it is only a 10km run, I’ll have plenty of time to visit some of Malacca’s world-famous tourist attractions. In particular, I’m really looking forward to explore Malacca’s many picturesque Historical & Cultural landmarks which provide visitors with a fascinating snapshot of her GLORY DAYS  as Malaysia’s most sought after trading post for the European and Asian seafaring nations.

So, this Runcation will be all about 3 of my favourite activities – running, sightseeing and eating!

Official Recce For Avillion Cultural Ride 2018

Official Recce For Avillion Cultural Ride 2018

IMG_20180904_143231_536

Editor’s Note

On 4th September 2018, I joined the technical crew of Avillion Cultural Ride (ACR) 2018 together with the Avillion Admiral Cove staff, En. Rahzuan and Tengku Azah, and En. Shaiful /Timbalan Ketua Traffic Negeri Sembilan (Traffic Police) to inspect and to survey the NEW proposed 160km route.

IMG_20180907_203012_596

Frankly, this was my first time, to recce a cycling route with a technical crew, and I was excited to observe and learn how it’s done. My other intention is to gather and  share some useful and interesting insider information to cycling fans and to my readers…

IMG_20180909_045438_582

Activity | Official Recce 160km Cycling Route For ACR 2018

Date | 04 Sept 2018, 8am

Meeting Point | Avillion Admiral Cove, Port Dickson

IMG_20180904_091521_768

Sea Captain

In my eagerness, I had arrived at the meeting point early, before 8am, and I had time to wander around the beautiful boating and mooring facilities at Avillion Admiral Cove (AAC) Resort.

The view of the morning sunray reflecting on the calm seawater of the inlet was truly spectacular, and the sight of private luxury yachts and boats birthed on the exclusive dock made me envious of their unknown rich owners. Thankfully, I could enjoy the priceless views of the South China Sea on the horizon for free!

btr

There were a couple of sea anglers who boarded a charming open deck boat which was steered slowly and quietly out to sea; and I watched the diagonal waves created by the propellers. I wondered if these fishermen would catch any of those magnificent ocean fish, and subsequently, would they release their catch back into the ocean, or would they bring back their catch back to shore to feast upon. I do love fresh seafood, but I also worry about our marine life being overfished and over polluted. There is something about the sea’s vastness that always puts me a reflective mood and make me start questioning the meaning of life! However, this morning, my focus must be firmly fixed on dryland…

IMG_20180907_203524_263

Patrol Duty

Our convoy was made up of a police patrol 4WD, 2 police bikes, and 3 sedan cars. Our mission was to follow exactly the preplanned 160km cycling route; verify its exact distance; cross-check the distance markers; assess the safety of any road intersections and road conditions; and confirm suitable areas for the water station locations.

IMG_20180907_215153_560

Same Start

All the 30km, 60km and 160km Cyclists would start near the resort’s guardhouse and turn right at the main road which would take them past the Port Dickson Hospital. At the first roundabout, all riders will go straight towards Teluk Kemang where there are many roadside eateries for holidaymakers. Then, at 11km point, the 30km riders will turn left and head to PD Beach, passing Army Museum.

btr

Thereafter, it’s a 2km ride on the coastal road back to Avillion Admiral Cove to end their 30km fun ride. 

btrhdr

LINGGI WATER STATION💦

Like last year’s ride, the first pit stop will be 31km away at Pekan Linggi where 160km & 60km riders will be able to refuel with drinks and bananas. If all goes well, there may be a nice surprise for the riders here, but it’s not confirmed yet. 

btroz

160km & 60km Split↔️

Right after Linggi WS, the endurance riders will turn right and head to Lebuk Raya, Semerbok (50km mark), and at Legok Jaya (58km point), they must turn left to Rembau.

btr

Meanwhile, the scenic 60km riders will head straight immediately after this first water station, making their way to Sungai Linggi where they will share the final 17km route back to Finish Line as 160km cyclists.

IMG_20180907_220130_303

2nd Water Station💦💦

IMG_20180910_115058_501

Right after Kampung Bogek, the second WS for 160km route is situated outside Sekolah Kebangsaan Salak Nama at 69.5km point.

IMG_20180910_114051_903

FROM 90KM ONWARDS

At 91km, the riders will cycle through the sleepy hamlet of Ulu Rantau at Kampung Cina. Then, they’ll pass Kuala Sawah (Rantau) at 102km point, followed by Mambau at 110km mark.

IMG_20180908_124455_038

3rd Water Station 💦💦💦

btr

After the Balai Polis Silau at 126km, the third WS will most probably be at Sekolah Kebangsaan Dato’ Raja Kelana, Renau (135km point).

IMG_20180909_123812_688

Afterwards, from Sungai Linggi (@143km), the remaining route is the same as the 60km riders too, which will be flanked by open palm oil estates, until the shady portion of Sungai Menyala nature reserve. The homestretch will take the weary riders back pass the Port Dickson roundabout and finally, to the familiar Avillion Admiral Cove entrance on the left. Please note that one side of the driveway will be closed for cyclists, while the other side will be opened to the public to enter and exit the resort. There will be marshals present to direct you, but for your safety, you ought to slow down before turning into Admiral Cove. 

IMG_20180904_093657_501

LONG STRETCHES

IMG_20180907_215153_558

The new 160km route is the most straightforward amongst all my past century rides which means there are less turnoffs and not many major intersections to slow down or distract the racers.

CHARMING COUNTRYSIDE

IMG_20180912_100142_519

Much of the century’s route is through unhurried villages where time appears to move very slowly and nothing new happens. There are many nostalgic views of Kampung life and farms where the locals live predominantly off the land, and their traditions remain mostly intact.

cof

I noticed that the heartland of Negeri Sembilan is very green, and much of her natural landscape – the flora and fauna – have been left unspoilt by modern industrialisation, so far. Don’t be surprised, if on this century route, you’ll find that your fancy road bikes will be the only sign of modernisation for miles around. 

IMG_20180909_123531_730

PROMOTE PRESERVATION

Without wanting to sound like a greenie or a hippie, it’s important for the local companies like Avillion Admiral Cove, with the support of the local leaders, to organise more inclusive and healthy activities such as Avillion Cultural Ride 2018. By doing so, more visitors will be able to see firsthand the original beauty in the natural landscape of unspoilt Negeri Sembilan…and hopefully, it will remain that way for the future too. 

THE SHOW MUST GO ON

btroz

By coincide, the high profile Port Dickson by-election will take place on the day before race day. While, it is vital that the concerned citizens cast their votes on polling day in a civilised manner, it is also equally important that the plans of the ACR 2018 Organiser are allowed to continue without unnecessary interruptions for the sake of the paid-up participants, as well as for the local companies, the local supporters and community who have invested their valuable time and resources to showcase Port Dickson as a popular holiday and sports destination…

IMG_20180904_153444_116

WRAP UP MEETING

Having completed our 160km journey, we adjourned to Teluk Kemang for a scrumptious lunch of popular local dishes of ikan assam pedas and daging masak lemak. Yummy!

oznor

Then, we headed back to Avillion Admiral Cove for a meeting to provide project updates and confirm the next important action points over a nice cuppa tea and sandwiches from the resort’s kitchen.

RESPECTFUL TRAVELER

Many cyclists love to go on bike vacations and tour the Malaysian countryside on two wheels. It is important for touring or visiting Cyclists to UNDERSTAND and RESPECT the common local customs and traditions in order to keep a mutually beneficial relationship between the visitors and their hosts. To this end, I have listed below a few common sense tips to help city-dwelling visitors INTERACT POSITIVELY with the out-of-town locals.

8 TOP TRAVEL TIPS

1) Plan your visitation in advance, and in particular draw out an itinerary outline of things to do and places to visit to make best use of your limited time.

2) In addition to bringing along sufficient funds for traveling expenses, allocate extra budget for any contingencies.

3) Whenever possible, acquire local products and services to support the local community. Any small contribution will go a long way collectively.

4) Research your travel destination beforehand, so that you can interact more meaningfully with the locals who will appreciate your efforts.

5) Never assume that everything is done in the same way away as it’s done at home. BE SENSITIVE to the local customs and play by the local rules to show your hosts due respect, and you’ll gain their respect too.

6) Be flexible and don’t expect the same comforts and convenience as what you’re used to at home. Locals will normally give visitors the BEST of what they’ve got, so accept their offerings graciously no matter how small it seems to you.

7) NEVER CRITICISE the local people or their lifestyle even if you don’t like them because it’s regarded as disrespectful and ungrateful.

8) Leave nothing behind except footprints, and take nothing away but memories…

Incidentally, these traveler’s tips are universal, and they apply to most places that I’ve VISITED, for abroad and domestic outstation trips. Hope, it helps you leave a good impression on behalf of the cycling community…

GCE Duathlon 2018 – Review By Gus Ghani

GCE Duathlon 2018 – Review By Gus Ghani

btrhdr

Editor’s Note

It was a helluva cool running & cycling on the express lanes of GCE (Guthrie Corridor Expressway) Highway without any motor vehicles in sight!

Perhaps spurred on by the patriotic mood of Malaysia Day, 1,000 or so excited participants had safely completed the inaugural GCE Duathlon 2018 which included 3+1 Categories of Full/Dash/Team Relay plus the 37km Fun Ride.

rbt

I felt like being part of a historical sports event because it was the first time that a Duathlon event has ever been held on a closed toll highway in Malaysia.

rbtoz

For my readers, I have penned down some of the race eve/day highlights below…hope you enjoy the story and the accompanying visuals!

btr

RACE PACK COLLECTION

cof

KL Gateway Mall was the venue for the race pack collection on 15th Sept 2018 from 10am to 6pm.

cof

KL Gateway Mall is highly accessible & convenient location for visitors because it directly connects to the Federal Highway, Kerinchi Link and NPE, and it is linked to RapidKL’s KL Gateway-Universiti LRT Station via a 100 meter link bridge.

IMG_20180915_123623.jpg

There were several sponsor booths offering sports items such as nutrition, gear, shoes, accessories, and even watches for sale.

Videos – Nutrition For Recovery & Complimentary N8 Sports Nutrition Fuel Gel.

Every participant was entitled to a complimentary fuel gel by N8 Sports Nutrition as part of the hoodie bag.

oznor

The collection area at KL Gateway Mall was particularly huge, and the collection system was managed efficiently by GoSportz.

BIKE CHECK-IN

All Full/Dash/Team Relay participants had to checked-in their bikes from 4pm to 9pm on 15th Sept 2018 at the Bukit Jelutong Toll Plaza race venue.

bsh

On race morning, the riders were allowed into the bike transition area from 4am to 6am for final inspection.

rbthdr

The Transition Area were neatly organised and well managed, which helped the racers make quick transitions.

Smooth & Rolling

cof

cof

The motorbike lane of GCE Highway is a favourite training ground for cyclists on the weekends, and so, being able to run and cycle on the GCE Highway main express lanes, Car-Free, is even better.

btroz

It was not all smooth sailing for the athletes because certain parts of the route had its fair share of rolling hills. Some participants may have cursed the hilly portion, while, others. like myself, prefer to have some rolling hills to break the monotony of the long stretches.

rbt

Weather Factor

rbtoz

The temperature upto the first hour after the 7:00 am flagoff was comfortably cool. However, after that, the hot conditions made the race more challenging, especially for the 2nd running leg of the Full Duathlon category. Fortunately, adequate water stations were set-up along the way for the runners and riders to keep hydrated with water, isotonic drinks and bananas.

Video – Water Station

Food & Drinks

rbt

The Finishers were all treated to a tasty lunchbox, refreshments, drinks, and free flow Milo. Additionally, there was a free massage service for the weary bodies.

Music band and a clown provided an upbeat entertainment at the Finish Area.

Duathlon Trending

rbtoz

Recently, there have been more Duathlon events emerging, and the number of willing participants are rising slowly, but surely. So, this new GCE Duathlon could be a good springboard for our local Duathletes to hone their skills, as well as offer newbies a chance to try a new endurance sports in the safe confinements of a closed highway.

btroz

Right now, the participation rate in Duathlon is still relatively small compared to Triathlon, Running or Cycling, but with the emergence of more quality Duathlon events like GCE Duathlon, the numbers should grow in time.

btroz

New Partnership

Meanwhile, the Co-Organisers, Prolintas & GoSportz, have produced a respectable event for their first attempt, and if they decide to stage another one, I am sure that it will be even better based on their combined experience drawn and lessons learnt from their first collaborative production.

rbtoz

Personal Victories

My two running buddies, Azril & Suparno, were both pleased with their Dash Duathlon results, and they both gave this event two thumbs-up.

IMG_20180917_100954_358

This is Azril’s first comeback event since he was involved in a motorbike accident in May 2018!

btr

My wife Maryati was one of only 26 women who braved the Dash Duathlon.

Video – Maryati On The Run

For us, her greatest achievement was solely to have completed the course without injury. In fact, I was extremely proud of her results for her first Duathlon race because when she got off her bike, her legs felt like jelly, but she bit the bullet and still finished the race with a big smile. What an unforgettable way to have spent a truly special Malaysia Day…

BHPetrol Orange Run 2018 – Preview by Happy Runner

BHPetrol Orange Run 2018 – Preview by Happy Runner

Print

Editor’s Note

This is a hugely popular annual run because it’s heavily subsidised by title sponsor BHPetrol and others which means the participation fee is only for RM5 for a soundly organised 11km runaround in Kota Damansara. Furthermore, there will be field of strong elite runners who will fight for the attractive podium prizes.

Usually, there will be huge gathering of runners after the race who will enjoy the amazing array of free snacks and refreshments provided by the participating brands and food trucks.

With RM50,000 worth of prizes, there is no other first-class running event which can match BHPetrol Orange Run for value. Where else can you pay only RM5 per entry for a thoroughly enjoyable runners party.

🏃⛽Event : BHPetrol Orange Run
