What you'll do
We'll cycle beyond the city limits of George Town, enjoy a breakfast picnic with a view, chat over great coffee (or tea, if you'd prefer) and explore lesser known parts of the island. Our unique route will have you cycling through a part of the city to begin with and then along the island's eastern waterfront on a dedicated (Class 1) cycling lane - safe from the hustle and bustle of traffic but close enough to experience the sights and sounds of a charming island in the midst of rapid change. You'll pick up information that you won't get from the guidebooks and we're sure this will add a meaningful layer to your experience of the island! This leisurely 3-3.5 hour experience begins and ends at the heart of George Town.
Hey there! I'm Jon, an outdoor-loving photojournalist whose work revolves around documenting the essence of everyday living across the Southeast Asian region, mostly telling stories of people and places where nature, culture and travel intersect. A few good friends and I founded Kayuh Penang in 2018 with a vision of connecting and growing with the island's community of cyclists. Curating wholesome experiences filled with diverse perspectives, good food, coffee and conversations on two wheels is a big part of what we do and we're absolutely delighted to share the immense beauty of this tropical paradise with you. ps: 'kayuh' means to pedal in Malay - let's go!

Where you'll be
This cycling picnic will show you a different side of Penang through a local cyclist's perspective - and as such we'll be cycling beyond the old acclaimed streets of George Town towards a more suburban and industrial setting that's charming in its own way. We'll make three stops - two of which overlooks the sea - for refreshments, breakfast and conversations. With the exception of Karpal Singh Drive, the other two stops are off the beaten path.
