It was  a lovely morning at Prescott Metro Inn, Kajang where all the 400 participants gather to prep themselves for the upcoming 420km ride.

Backed by Main Sponsor – KH Cycle, and support from Veemer Motor and Thule South East Asia, PCC Interstate 2012 will bring the riders from Kajang to Johor within three days starting from 28th April onwards. Participants will take on the old trunk road with their two-wheelies, and for today, they will clock in a mileage of 120km on hilly terrains.

The first day saw challenging climbs and hard bending single lane roads especially in a 10-km stretch after passing Pertang on a connecting road to Batu Kikir. Jason from Australia flew-in a few days ago just to attend the PCC Interstate 2012 who unfortunately injured himself due to bike failure while cruising downhill about 5km away from Jelebu Town.

Most riders reported in with satisfaction and thumbs up for the tulips marking along the journey. Another cyclist added, “The planned road was great, challenging and suffering, all at the same time.”
