The best way to see and experience a country is to see its roots and history. Equipped with the simplest mode of transport a bicycle, you are set and ready to go through rural Malaysia and a few local Malaysian villages also dubbed “the kampong”. A quick escape out of the city bring you back in time to experience and soak in the rustic way of Malaysian living. Simple sundry shops by the road side, old mosques, nice village huts, and a beautiful view of the sun rising against the silhouette of one of KL city major water supply lake.
The ride starts of easy on very flat terrain along some twisty rural roads surrounded by lush greenery and the cool misty mornings of the countryside. The road then follows alongside the bends of a nice small river. Midway into the ride, expect a few hill climbs, which by then the muscles should be all warmed up and ready to take on the oncoming challenges. Expect some loud calls from the Malayan Gibbons and some mischievous macaques by the side of the road. Along the way, we are expected to see some native “orang asli” kampongs (local Malaysian indigenous villages). Pedal power on two wheels is the way to go to experience a different side of Malaysia.
We would require you to be of average fitness and must be able to ride a bicycle well. The ride will be adjusted to fit the groups fitness level, so not to worry, you would be guided and well taken care of on this experience.
