Bike camping at Sukamantri Camping Ground 23-24 January

I start a bit late that day, about 7.15am from home. Rainy day makes the trip very comfortable.Using my old kuwahara bicycle with extragrip ma**is tyres size 26x 2.20. This size actually not recommended for long-distance travel, but i still use it since stony road on location outstretched about last 5km need a wide-offroad-tyres. Adjust high pressure for asphalt and lower for offroad.


A sketch before go
Berangkat agak terlambat sabtu itu, 7.15 pagi dari rumah. Hujan gerimis membuat perjalanan lebih nyaman.Menggunakan sepeda tua kuwahara yang dirancang  khusus menggunakan menggunakan ban ma**is ukuran 26x 2.20. Ban ini sejatinya tidak direkomendasikan untuk jarak jauh, namun mengingat jalan makadam 5km terakhir di tempat tujuan, ban ini justru nyaman digunakan mengingat bobotnya yang ringan dan kembangan kasarnya membantu pijakan di medan berat. Sesuaikan tekanan bannya, keras untuk aspal, lembut untuk medan berat. about 3km before camp site, rear tyre got spike about 2.30pm. In the middle of nowhere. This problem must be fixed immediately unless i will carry the 30kg bike up hill :p





Sekitar 3km dari gerbang, ban belakang tertusuk paku. Di tengah hutan. Harus segera diatasi kecuali mau menjalani sisa perjalanan sambil menggotong sepeda di tanjakan terjal :p

take a rest for a while before uphill riding
unexpected surprise...

6km from site, there is a beautiful lake with great view. Many people do fishing here. Too bad this place not well managed.

Sekitar 6km sebelum lokasi terdapat danau yang lumayan bagus pemandangannya. Banyak orang memancing di sini, hanya sangat disayangkan banyak sampah karena tidak serius dikelola.
