Training options in Jakarta

Recommended Posts

Any of our expat Trannies got experience of tri clubs and/or places to train in Jakarta?

Google isn't returning many valuable hits.

 

I'll be working there for the next 4 weeks, in the Kemang, Blok M suburbs.

 

I need to make sure my apparently already unworthy state (read qualifying for Vegas thread) doesn't deteriorate too much. : )

Hey Foz,

 

A mate of mine just moved there last month for 2 years. He is in touch with a number of people there who do regular rides/runs. Not sure where you are in relation to him, but he is in an area where all the expats stay.....apparently.

 

Ping me and I'll give you his number.

 

cheers

Foz

Mmmmm, Block M.....frequented the area when I was working in KL. Not a place for much other than nightlife ( if you're up for that kinda stuff ).

Indoor stuff only I'd suggest in that part of J town. Chaotic and dangerous traffic rules out bike or road runs. Not to mention the choking air pollution and heat. Some of the universities might have some decent pools and other training facilities but I haven't researched it. Good luck.

Doing off site inspections of teak, glass and hand tufted carpets in Indonesia for the Petronas Towers. Traveled thru Jakarta often on the way to factories and suppliers.

Thanks for the tips guys. IronmanFoz, I'll contact your mate once I'm up there.

I'll let you know how I get on in the next few weeks.

While working Bangladesh I published the Dhaka Dhaka Diary to relay tales of WTF and training for my first IM.

If I get chance this trip I'll publish the Djaka Djaka Diary : )
