  1. Recently completed a solo bike ride with my missus.
    It was a wet & wild ride on the day we did the MSH loop.

    Photos of our 16D/15N ride posted in my blog here:- www.wxk8209.blogspot.com

  4. You have some Iron Butt man! Oh, and your missus too! On some days, you covered some incredible distances.

    Let me know the next time you come up. I'm a fellow KL'ian as well. Best time to visit the North is around December / January - dry, with beautiful cool evenings.
     
  5. Well done Henry and it looks like you had an enjoyable trip. Congrats!

    ps. your photo links need fixing.
