A ride on GCE

Finally managed to find a weekend to join the BJ (Bukit Jelutong) cyclist on their regular saturday ride on GCE.

This is the 4th or 5th time that I ride with the clipless. I am still very fearful of it and constant worry about falling over. Heard from a commentator during the broadcast of TdF yesterday that a TdF winner fell over the other day on a training ride.

That did not make it less worrying, it actually make it worst. That actually tell me that I will never get used to it.

Back to the ride, it was enjoyable, riding among the high end bikes with expensive groupset and the wheels. I tried to take it easy and just enjoy the ride. First few KM was tough because of the cold muscle, but it got better after that.

Overall a nice ride, safe because it was on bike lane most of the time and no drain cover like those in Kesas. I still slow down a lot when going into the tunnel. The fear will never leave me, I supposed.

I will definitely join this guys for saturday ride in the future.

Total distance is about 32KM.

A brand new web services for runners and photographers

This idea appeared when I was running the Pacesetter 15K run at Padang Merbok. During the run, i saw many photographers on the route and I know they took pictures. I am just wondering how can I get the picture from them.

And talked to some photographers, they also have a question on how to sell/give those picture to the runners.

Hence this website was created. 

We provide a market place for runners and photographers. We have a database of events entered in the system and will be providing registered user to add the event as well.

After an organized run, can be local or international run, photographer can upload their pictures to the site (resize to smaller for easier upload) and the runners can go to the website to search for their picture with the bib number.

Viola. Linking the supply to the demand.
