7. From Jeli – Gerik – Jalan Timur-Barat Highway – This road to Gerik town is very challenging.

Important Notes:

★road is narrow with no emergency / bike lane. Please focus while riding on this road. If you did not rest/sleep before this climb, we advice you not to continue the ride. If you feel sleepy while riding here, PLEASE STOP RIDING immediately.
★be extra visible while you re riding in the rain. And watch out for fast cars – car accident is not uncommon in this area. Please be extra careful.
★Elephants crossing in the dark – if you reach Jeli in the midnight, we advice you to stop and rest in Jeli. Do not proceed until 3am. This is because wild elephants usually come out at night in the area. If you re lucky to see some, please take note:
a. Do not shout/scream among team mates;
b. lower your beam while they are crossing the road, off your blinker etc;
c. stop your bike and regroup your team mates;
