The oldest rider in the team, Mr. Sang (he is over 50 years old), to get there, he had gone thru more than 150km fom Ben Tre to Ho Chi Minh City to meet us up. Great guy.

We departed about 4:40.

The road was not clear as expected. There are quite numbers of trucks and carries.

However, we move with quite good speed, in city, the average speed was about 80km/h.

 

After about 60km, there was a bike has issue with its tire, then the rider need to stop to fix, with Mr. Khanh, who always take care the most end part of the convoy.

 

We stoped for a while to wait our friends after getting out of the city:

Blue - (Ms. Minh) - the only lady rider in the team.

With 125cc motorcross, she made us and many others surprised with her energy, ability and the concentration... She departed a title sooner than us, did not need to stop for waiting with us....

 

And now, she done the breakfast, then took the early depart (you can see the guys looking at her from the stair):

Hic... From that point , feel so sorry and sorrow for the low quality hand-gloves. They was too hard and tense, so when riding on Bảo Lộc mountain pass I was unable to take any photo. It was a very nice pass, with newly renovated road.

 

Phanbatrac with his "Hybrid bike" - the one consumed the lowest gasoline amount:

Arrived Đà Lạt, we took a small round by Xuân Hương lake. The most beautiful place here.

Some months ago, this lake was drained out all of water for some cleaning and renovation. That time, Đà Lạt looked differently. It was a pity for any tourists who visit this place during that period.

 

Our bikes took some more rest here...

The temperature here was around less than 20DegC, sunny.

After the Highway, we heading to Gia Bac mountain pass.

This Gia Bac pass is the old trail (national road No.28) connecting Di Linh highland with Phan Thiet, the seaside city.

Total length of the connection was known as 97km.

Total of twisty mountain pass most likely about 50-70km.

It is always fun and exciting when riding here.

I have experienced both riding and driving thru this pass, but the feeling of riding with several bends is much much more excited.

 

Reached Gia Bac pass, I was not so confident on my new hand gloves (they r new, and quite hard) then I didn't dare to take foto...

 

There are some photos taken from previous riding trip, while still using the old hand gloves, just bring here to share some feeling...

Cont'd....

 

This time, passing the Gia Bac pass, I just got the below photos, hic, due to the gloves issue... hic...

 

You can see the upper road, with the hard stoppers... just behind be, it was a very short and immediate bend.

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn317/viethorse/2011/ACE%20MTSG-Dalat-Muine-12Mar/IMG_6530.jpg

 

My bike, she was so cool on the twisty road...

 

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn317/viethorse/2011/ACE%20MTSG-Dalat-Muine-12Mar/IMG_6531.jpg

 

Hayza....

 

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn317/viethorse/2011/ACE%20MTSG-Dalat-Muine-12Mar/IMG_6532.jpg

 

We stopped for a while, took photos and chit chat a bit... the next group still far... We kept continue riding...

Now we can easily feel the dry season is here. Plants had changed their color.... not green any more...

 

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn317/viethorse/2011/ACE%20MTSG-Dalat-Muine-12Mar/IMG_6539.jpg

 

All the bends now became simple and boring...

We stopped at a street inn, drank sugar cane water, and wait for the following groups. It was about 10km to the sea.

 

After some mins, all team gathered, all safe, all took drinks, and continued moving to Mui Ne.

 

Arriving at Mui Ne:
