After all these years, I finally made my first trip to Drak Bike Park with the Five-0 mountain bike gang. The park is situated in the Indonesian island of Batam, just a 45-minute ferry ride from the Harbourfront Ferry Terminal in Singapore.
|You can count on Boss Stewart Ong to take care of everything - from the moment you arrive at the Indonesian terminal through the special "VIP fast track" immigration, plus food, accommodation and logistics.
|The trail is located at the Duriangkang water catchment reservoir. Durian Kang in Hokkien dialect means Durian River, shortened to "Drak".
Climbing the Super D trail with 14 tight switchbacks is hard work, especially in the steamy tropical 44° heat. Do 5 rounds of that and one would surely be ready for a massive lunch in the jungle.
