If you wear short pants you'll see the leeches as they're sucking you of blood.

I'd recommend wearing long pants, to provide more protection, not so from bugs but from stray branches that may scrape you.

I'd recommend long pants definitely, ones tucked into your socks if you want to avoid leeches

Must get some industrial strength insect repellent too, that natural citronella crap doesn't work.

i did mountain biking frequently @ FRIM. The Rover Track, where the jogger trails, rarely got leech. So don't worry about that. Unless you go Bukit Hari Track. That is a long way to walk then you will reach to a valley.

A good way to prevent from leech is, use some dettol + water. Then spray @ ur leg. No leech will seek for you. Hope these helps. and hope i can join if i got nothing to do. cheers.
