From Thailand into Malaysia
The team planned to cross the Thai border into Malaysia today, but had some Visa issues as they had overstayed their Visa by 15 days. After much deliberation they were fined 1000b each (AUD32 each) and allowed to enter Malaysia.
The team has their first puncture today – before the ride Walter swapped the stock Kenda Hybrid tyres with Schwalbe Road tyres since all their riding would be on road (they thought). This is the first puncture for the ZOCO bikes until now.
The below picture is an indication of what the ZOCO bikes are being put through throughout the 500km journey – as Walter describes it “the bikes have been through hell and back”, and they are now entering another monsoon season!
