Long weekend is a very ideal timing for medium range ride. As predicted, this time we chose Jogjakarta, about 500 Km from Jakarta as our target for this “Hindu’s Public Holiday” (Thursday, 26 March 2009) which provided us a long-long weekend… since every one treated themselve as “sick” on Friday (27 March 2009) and therefore we could really enjoy the riding time from Thrusday to Sunday (29 March 2009). Hahahaha…
Thursday, 26 March 2009: Cikampek-Jogjakarta
07.00 a.m. at Cikampek. As usual last Briefing before leaving and pray.. Didi, the Club President (+Grace) intentionally came to brief the members and we said to him, “Dont worry Boss, we promise to be ‘good boys’ during the trip..” Hahahaha..
After passing a very bad road between Subang and Kadipaten, we continued the trip and had a lunch at Losari Area. Ride after lunch, we then trapped again at another bad road on the way to Prupuk. Uh.. that was tiring..
Arround Bumiayu up to Gombong, we were riding in a heavy rain…
After, had another and last break at Gombong, we finally arrived at Jogjakarta savely at 09.30 in the evening. Uh it was a long 14 hours ride for a trip that usually only take 10 hours. Hm.. that very bad road and heavy rain during the day and another rain just after sunset forced us to rode slowly at many parts of the roads passed by. Well, as far as every one enjoy and arrive safely, that was all right.. 🙂
Take a hot water hard shower after checking in at the hotel was so nice.. We then had a late “Lesehan” dinner and enjoying some street singers performances, at Malioboro Street just in front of the Hotel. Hm..
