Penang Highlands Premier Bicycle Ride ~ Penang Malaysia


Trip Description

The enchanting highlands of Penang have so much allure that it is impossible to complete in a single outing.The backbone of the island and with its vast network of trails made it possible to start our ride at almost anywhere.

A single word – INTIMATELY, that is how well we know our local trails.

The fragrance of this tour lies in its alluring uniqueness found along the journey itself. To travel by bicycle is to never actually arrive, the journey itself is the destination.

Lose yourself in the network of single trails – get mesmerize with the view from the top of the peaks, the rugged western coastline with its secluded beaches or the magnificent flower filled Blue Valley from the top of Mount Elvira.

Enjoy the best Mountain Biking routes on the island and get prepared to be teased by highlights and surprised yourselves with wonders you never knew exist.

We shall only assemble a group if you have made a group booking consisting of among your own friends or family members. However, each group outing is limited to a maximum of 6 riders only. Much of the places we are riding along are secluded and keeping a small numbers of riders are important to maintain the privacy of small and remote settlements that we will be passing along.
