Pomona is famous for the King of the Mountain race which is staged during the last weekend of July each year.
The other race held in Pomona is the 24hr Enduro Mountain bike race in June.
The mountain is at a forest reserve, the climb is about 4km,very steep and can be slippery at times.
The vertical height is 460m above sea level.
The winning time for the King of the Mountain race is 23mins to the summit.
I timed myself today : almost double time!! haha!
Due to their specified diet preference and sporadic forest clearance, the Cuckatoos have become a protected species.
The climb was steep! I had to use all 4 limbs plus my butt muscles.
On the way down ,it looked too scary and was quite slippery so i went down on my bum and scrambled down!
