Gombak - Genting Sempah - Bukit Tinggi

21 Apr, Saturday - The 17km uphill from Gombak to Genting Sempah is a popular route preferred by cyclists, it is also an alternative route to Janda Baik, Bukit Tinggi and Bentong. We joined with 12 other cyclists organized by 'My Cyclist Friends' group buddy, Rivern.

To Janda Baik village

At Genting Sempah junction

Downhill all the way, less pedaling needed but beware of incoming vehicles
(Note: In this outing, one of our rider suffered a crash due to the incoming trailer that cut across his path while making a sharp turn. He avoided the trailer and crash to the left side of the road shoulder)

Finally, flat road back to Gombak. Covered a total distance of 50.4km
