Paths of Pain to Jewels of Glory Event

The last 48 hours have been some of the most tiring, hottest and enjoyable hours i have spent in a long time. The Paths of Pain to Jewels of Glory event brought over 100 fixed gear bicycle enthusiasts from all walks of live together to partake in a peddle packed weekend. The night kicked off with the participants trickling in from their various modes of transport, each heading to the Bengkel to put their rides back together in preparation for a little night time cruise. From the Deus Temple to Potato Head was the plan, with a little stop off in Oberoi for an impromptu street closure and trick exhibition. Everyone made it to Potato Head, socializing and drinking the night away, resting their weary legs and knocking back a few. As the morning rolled round, those who stayed up and partied slowly arrived at the Temple, along with those who hadn't yet gone to bed. A 35km ride through paddy fields to the ocean and back was the first order of the day, testing peoples metal and showing them some beautiful vistas along the way. The rest of the day saw a Lap Race, Wheelie contests, Trick Showdowns, the Courier Race and games of Sumo and Skid Target. We managed to pack everybody into the emptied showroom floor, putting its polished floors to good use. As the day turned to night, The Hydrant put on a show which had everyone on their feet as well as on their peddles. The event drew to a close with an awards ceremony sporting some sweet prizes (Thanks to Robby for the Ariel 7 headphones and Adi for the free stays at his hotel) A weekend of exhausting fun is just what I needed, and that's exactly what I got! Thanks to everybody that came down and made this event as fun as it was! Yewwww!
