ARB Greenride 2014 Test Trail, it is tough for standard riders

It has 4 check points (4 CPs)37 - 40 km, including tarmac & offroad. Let me start reviewing this trail for you guys to enjoy & taste it first hand this coming sunday.

 CP1 Section - "dragon back" trail 
First section to the CP1, riders have to ride on the tarmac on the main road to access Bandar Tasik Puteri from the main road. About half the length in the CP1 section will be on this tarmac, then everyone will be divert into the offroad on the left side. This CP1 section is fun to ride with the average climbing. Only toward the end of the CP1 section, you will be climb & downhill on the "dragon back" trails. This section will consume your energy a lots. I suggest you don't push yourself as you need to use it more in the rest of the trails. Here is the pictures of the "dragon back".

 View from the last peak of the "Dragon Back" - push the bike or you can ride it if you could.

 CP2 Section - "scorpions" trail 
Here is where they called it the "scorpions" trail. Why it is called "scorpions", I am not sure why. However, this CP2 section is the best trails in this jamboree, we will go through a rubber plantations in the earlier part with very nice and kind of cold as we have canopies from the rubber tree. This section have few short climbing. This CP2 section is the most enjoyable trail. Here some pictures of the trail.

 CP3 Section - the "zigzag" legend 
 Here is the main attraction for this ARB Green Ride 2014 jamboree, the legend from the Sungai Selangor Jamboree, the "zigzag" trail. So, for those who want to feel the downhill and then uphill in the zigzagging mode. This is the only chance. Starting from here, there will be few tough uphilling with the slippery and single trail.

 Kawasan lalang in between "zigzag" and "agrotech area 
Another tough area in this CP3 section is the Agrotech area. There is a steep tarmac climbing. I believe it will be very hot under the sun as the tarmac is an open road, small trees around. Here are some pictures of this section trails.
