What you'll do

Well meet up at the pickup point in town in the early morning to transfer to the bike centre, Once arriving at the biking centre, you will be given a bike for the 2.5hour ride. The ride covers the plantation area, fruits orchard, fisherman jetty, traditional Malay and Chinese villages, many of the roads we'll be riding are not on the map and are only known by locals. We'll also make some stops along the ride for some local coffee and also visit a local family that have a goat farm. You may expect to see some of the hidden scenery in Penang. The ride will end where we started earlier.
Other things to note:
The riding is both on and off road, and while it is not especially challenging it does require some bicycle riding experiences.

An easy and laidback cycling experience amidst the greenery and local villages, away from the bustling city. Eddy is a great guide, he was punctual and picked us up from our hotel in the morning. He was well versed on the life of the local people in the Kampung. You'll also be visiting a fishing villages and a goat farm. This experience is suitable for beginners or those who don't cycle often as the roads are flat and there aren't many vehicles on the road. Highly recommended for those who are in Penang and are seeking for a fun and different experience!

Nice easy ride with Eddy. Very nice easy going guide knowledgeable. He has interesting insights during the tour without being overly present. He also let's you enjoy the experience. So it's a really nice and well balanced tour between scenery history and riding over unexpected penang surroundings. Recommended

It was lovely riding through the countryside with Eddie - we saw and tried so many new things (holding Javanese Cotton pods in my hands... so fluffy!...tasting nutmeg flowers straight off the tree... tasting goats milk from a local farm...), it is just a great change cycling out in the countryside after being indoors for so many months. There’s a good breeze this time of the year so the temperature was very comfortable too. Thank you Eddie for the great experience and great stories!!
