    Offroad bikepacking trip

    Hey foldies,

    Just completed a 150km ride over the weekend. Mostly offroad (70% trail - 30% road). We were made up of 6 foldies and 3 MTB cyclists.

    Rode through the backroads in the countryside, an ex-tin mine, oil palm plantation, peat swamp and paddy fields. Here are some highlights from my trip:
