Day 1: Bengkulu-Ipuh
Hm.. “Harpitnas” last week provided us 3 nights of flexi time. As planed, this time we will ride to West Sumatra. However, due to some participants demand, we finally decided to start and ride longger from Bengkulu. So, here we go. Not to be too long ride report, I have split the report into several parts and this is the first Part.
Leaving Jakarta by air to Bengkulu, the 12 riders (+ 4 passangers) were split into 2 Team. The first team consist of 3 riders has gone earlier and start from Bengkulu Thursday 21 May 2009 morning. While the rest (where I’m in it) was leaving Jakarta Thursday Morning and plan to start from Bengkulu in the afternoon.
We then rode and passed the historical British colonial heritage of Marlboro Fort and a Historical House where Soekarno (before the Independence day and before he then become the first Indonesian President) was arrested by Dutch colonial. We also passed the China Town.
After lunch, we then start to ride to Ipuh. To be continued in Part 2.
