Genting Sempah

The ride up to Genting Sempah from Gombak on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur. One of my favourite cycling routes - in fact pretty much my default ride. It involves around 15km of climbing at an average between 3-4% which means you can do quite a lot with it: spin up it, do cruise intervals or something harder, time-trial it, etc etc.

It's also a gateway through to Bentong, Bukit Tinggi or Janda Baik and, if you can get past the guards, Gohtong Jaya or Genting. All kinds of gradients on offer!

This video is shot by my wife June riding support for one of our cycling tours. It features a good friend, the flying Finn Jarno Lamsa. The rest of us are somewhere behind :) Music courtesy of the Dave Holland Big Band, which just happened to be playing in the car when she shot the film on my phone.
