I am new to KL from Australia and want to ride the Kiara trails. Where do I park to access the trails and is there any regular riding group?

Let me know at richard_gillis@digitalfive.com

Thanks a lot to Megat & Jimmy Kok who joined me for this chapter of trail maintenance.
We did a few sub-standard waterbars, partial bench-cut some places for better trail flow, cleared some big fallen trees and of course foliage trimming.

However, we were suprised when someone had cleared, earlier, a big log (in the middle section of Pure Quill) and used the cut log as foundation for a bridge at a section where the puddle of mud are. Ingenius and lots of work. Thanks a lot. It made our work much easier today
Come on.. whoever you are, show yourself.. you rock man ;)

We did not touch TNT, as the work party is quite small. Maybe next time.

Also, thanks to wifey who brought lunch (lots of Gatorade, mineral water, 100-plus, tandoori wraps, pasta, roasted chicken, roasted sausages with multi-colours peppers & juicy watermelons.
