I was inspired by PCC Interstate that I joined last year from Kajang to Kuala Pilah to Muar to Johor Baharu. So I decided to have our own version. A shorter distance was covered in just 2 days from Kuantan to Desaru. Eight of us from Kuantan together with around another 7 riders from Maran Cycling Club (majority juniors) started the journey from Kuantan at about 8:15AM. My original plan was to stop only at Nenasi, but since many had not had their breakfast, we stopped at Pekan. We reached Nenasi at about 12:30 afternoon. After 30-45 minutes there, we continued the ride to Rompin. We were crusing slowly at around 30-32 kmh allowing some juniors to keep up. In Rompin, we had our lunch, solat & even a quick shower. The next 50KM was fun especially after Endau where the road was rolling instead of the 130KM super flat previously. We stopped at La Bella Resort in Air Papan, Mersing forthe night.
On Day 2, we started the journey along the scenic road of Air Papan, took our breakfast and immediately after Mersing town the tougher route started! It was a never ending rolling from Mersing to Sedili. Few Johor friends, helped us. We can’t thank enough Joe from Joeleney Bike and others for the assistance. From Sedili (my kampung actually), we rode another 40-45KM along the coastal rough tarmac plus few more climbs under the scorching hot sun to Desaru. We finally decided to go to Tg Balau to complete the ride. In total we cycled more than 320KM!!
