    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

    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.
