Cycling Trip (Scouting) to Tronoh Mines & Tualang

Another great day to have a cycling trip after dreadful final (one and only last) assignment in my degree studies has come to an end. Scouting using our bicycle to discover a proper route that could lead us to the destination we longing for few weeks.

This time, I managed to bring along my secondary school friend, Cherng Yow. From Kampar > Kampung Baru Tronoh Mines > Tanjung Tualang > Kampar.

On the way to Kampung Baru Tronoh Mines.

We eventually wasted some time when we couldn't get our way to Kampung Baru Tronoh Mines using 'shortcut'. 'Shortcut' in other words, cycle at offroad or less traffic/vehicle.

Had no choice and made a U-turn to Kampar KTM Station and cycled the stretch of main road leading us to Teluk Intan. Next, turn into junction and made our way directly to Kampung Baru Tronoh Mines.

5 kilometers to go.

Pulled over at road leading to Kampung Baru Tronoh Mines.

Bloody satisfied and proud traveling to such isolated place by BICYCLE!

Cherng Yow, my secondary school friend.

Mike Lee, it's nice to have him navigate for every cycling trip.

From there on, scouting continued by making our way to Tanjung Tualang. The cycling journey has brought us back to Kampar safely...



Total distance traveled by bicycle: 43.48 kilometers

Thanks to Mike Lee for this map!

Sadly to say I didn't make it for official cycling trip using the same route as above on the following next few days later...
