Aquila Hill - XC trail in Indonesia

Mar 11, 2015
by Nardex  
Indonesia is a country with a tropical climate, natural conditions which only has two seasons: the rainy season and the dry season makes us very lucky because mountain bike activity is not stopped by weather constraints. Java is the most populous island in our country, the natural conditions of this island are very beautiful and exotic no less beautiful than Bali!

We stayed in the capital Jakarta to ride mountain bikes and seek the path away from our home. In the Mountainous areas in West Java is Mount Gede Pangrango where we ride, it has very beautiful scenery. We had 14 of our friends in the last week trying to play bike in this area, the path known as the track "Aquila Hill" is 18.5 Miles and is divided into three parts, namely the Path Gunung Putri, Aquila Hill and Forest Teak.

Heading into the first path is the path we use the Gunung Putri car transporter vehicle to reach a height of 1600 M above sea level, from the start of this first we push the bike to the garden area to the vegetable fields. Having reached the top of the flat then we can ride, the view of Mount Gede Pangrango is very beautiful.

The track conditions are derived and some parts there are slight incline contoured stone uphill so we had to push the bike to pass through. Derivatives are very dominant in this line so that we can ride very fast, this is the end of the lane highways between cities.

The Hill Aquila is located across the street from the path of Gunung Putri. First it was a mild incline, road asphalt and macadam stone so that we can cross this line fixed by pedaling a bicycle. After the uphill and then up on the hilltop of this hill track is a full derivative condition is red dirt path past the farm population sanagt high grass and some parts of the track are on the brink. We had great fun cycling this scenic path, in front of us is a village located in the valley.

Once out of Aquila Hill we were met with the inter-village highway road, conditions are climbs past the houses and then back into the singletrack teak forest. Entering this path contours are derived, pavement pathway consists of red earth, stone macadam, plant vegetation and forest humus, we can spur our bikes on quickly, and remain fully alert to avoid some trees. Thus report our trip greetings from Indonesia
