Destination Everywhere: Singapore Inbound
Day 1: Thailand Border → Penang
Leaving from the border, we had a fast run into the base of Mt Gerai (10km, 10%). With temperatures in the high 30’s the afternoon's heavy rain was welcomed as we made it to Penang.
Day 2: Penang → Ipoh
Waking to heavy rain had us layered up leaving Penang, the flattest stage of the trip. A warm and wet transfer stage before tomorrow's looming mountains.
Day 3: Ipoh → Tapah
We left Ipoh towards the Cameron highlands a 45km climb with lunch and a regroup at the top. The rain came as we ate, resulting in a very cautious long descent of the old road down towards Tapah.
Day 4: Tapah → Kuala Lumpur
A hot and fast day, had us on the busy KL highways on our run-in to the night's accommodation.
Day 5: Kuala Lumpur → Malacca
Talks of the toughest day on the trip - rolling hills all day, high temperatures and tired bodies.
Day 6: Malacca → Singapore
The final stage, an early departure was paramount to make it to the border in time. A fast morning made for great progress, we arrived at the store in the late afternoon tired but happy, in time for the celebrations.
