Cycling in Sarawak....Sibu to Brunei

I left Sibu in a very nice day. It was rainy that morning but soon after I started cycling the rain stopped. There was about 440km to Miri and 500km to Kuala Berlait in Brunei which was my next destination and there was no desire to stop on between except overnights stops.

I was a quite confused and I had such a strange feeling when I left Sibu, it seems that I lost my energy and even I had 2 days full rest but still my body was not fresh and I was just pushing myself to continue. Between Sibu and Miri there is another town called Bintulu which almost on the half way. I cycled on the first day about 125km and that number was the number came through my mind from the morning. When I arrived to Sarawak I was looking for a chance to visit the Longhouse and stay overnight there and meet Iban people and the other thing I was very interested in was having a bout journey to the forest through the rivers in Sarawak but no plan fro that and no information how to do that.

Cycling from Kuantan to JB

I left Kuantan in a very nice day fro Johor Bahru. I was planning to go to Tioman island which is half way to JB. I had almost 340km to JB and it was 3 days easy ride. I cycled 140km on the first day and I was fresh but still I am not very fit and cycling so long in a day makes me a bit tired for the next days and also still 3 kg extra weight left from time I was home.

At night I found a very nice mosque and stopped by. Always mosque is a very good place to sleep. I asked the guy there and he told me no problem you can stay here.

I arrived to the city and called him and told him where I am, the only thing I could tel him was a Tele Communication tower which I recognize as a point to let him where I am. He easily found my where about and after few minutes he was there with his pick up.

Cycling to Kuantan

I was ready to leave KL. I packed at night till 2am and Yaser helped me to do that. He was like a person who is going to travel himself and helped me a lot. In the morning I was ready, Yaser made a breakfast for me and then I should go to the agency to collect my visa and start. Ardavan who is another friend of mine and he is also a member of supporting team is doing an interview and he needed some pictures, so I had to delay for him to come and snap some shots for his article.

It was about 9:30 and I saw I had to wait till 11 am so …it is better to stay and leave next day. Actually I was a bit lazy. After almost 3 months do not traveling and having warm and safe place it is a bit hard to start again.

Planting tree in ISKL(International school Kuala Lumpur)

On Friday 7th I went to ISKL to have a workshop with kids there. Last time when I was in KL on November 2007 I had a workshop there and Lisa Nazim and Lois Pawl supported me to plant a tree and talk to the kids. When I decide to come to KL again I wrote them and asked them to give me an opportunity to have a talk to a new group.

I left KL on Sunday about 13pm finally I boxed my bags and loaded my bicycle, jumped on it and just I saw myself turning pedals on the road.

So great to be on the road again, feeling the fresh air and wind.

As always is difficult getting out from the big towns, I saw it is better to take the highway due to it was very easy to find and get it in and I did. I was so happy for ridding but ..
