Like mushrooms after the rain, mountain biking phenomenon in Penang is growing in popularity. It wasn't all that long ago when we heard someone say something like "What?? 3000 Ringgit for a bicycle??? Better buy a motorbike-lah...". Now you see mountain bikers on flashy mountain bikes everywhere. MTB has become tremendously popular, and it's too hot even an avid badminton player like CHONG (old buddy) who isn't really an outdoor person couldn't wait to jump on the two-wheel bandwagon.
Yeeah!! CHONG (second from left) survived his virgin MTB ride. (30km hilly ride from Teluk Bahang - Pantai Aceh - Teluk Bahang)
No mushroom seen, though there are beautiful waterfalls along the ride.
