Balik Pulau Countryside Cycling Tour - Penang

Trip Description

Away from Balik Pulau town there is a labyrinth of minor roads, pathways and alleys .

Exploring the town by bicycle has all the advantages of going by foot, combined with a much greater action radius and cooling breeze. If you want to experience Balik Pulau hideaways and countryside, touched by the charm of Malaysian way of country life at personal level, bicycle is a great way to do it. The cycling tour at Balik Pulau departs every day .
