HADYAI EPIC RIDE 2018

There was an EPIC Ride organized by Bro Wadisham in 21st and 22nd Apr 2018, actual route was from Berseri – Wang Kelian – Wang Prachart – Khuan Don – Rathaphum - Hadyai, total distance was 128.8km and returned via Padang Besar for 76.5km distance.

A total of 230 riders were flag off at Homestay Tok Mek at Berseri around 7.45am and most of them accelerated up to 40kmh after flag off until very steep climbing at Wang Kelian hill stopped those slow riders and fast riders rode like a flat road, it seems like no hill to them.

Most of the riders re –assembled at Immigration post for passport clearance around 9.30am and depart to Asean Market for water refill before proceed ride. It was like a self support ride where the organiser only managed hotel and travelling bag for riders. Thanks to the bike Marshall and arrow provided at every junction. Without them, we could lost to some where.

Halfway, a lot of riders were not able to close the gap peloton and after lunch time saw them resting under the tree or even having a cold coconut drinks at stall along the road. We did 5 to 6 rest stop to refill water and electrolyte drinks to endure hot temperature at 40deg C and it was a though day for the remaining 30km approaching Hadyai where the road was rolling. Finished 128km in 7.21hrs and reached hotel approximately 4.30pm. Well done to organiser Bro Wadisham and looking forward to ride again next year.
