Kuala Lumpur’s finest by bicycle

Kuala Lumpur’s finest
by bicycle

Guided by the principle that there is more than meets the eye once you hop on a bike and cycle
through Kuala Lumpur, this half day exploration is an example of elation and surprises
during and after ‘saddling up’. 4 hours of showing you the essence of KL.

WHY THIS TOUR?

Let’s take you for a ride through the unknown side of Kuala Lumpur in a responsible fashion! Glancing through your car window to the majestic Twin Towers, the varied lifestyle of a multicultural society, and seeking food hawkers effortlessly whipping up the most delectable dishes without even getting a sniff at it may not be the way to get a full sense of what KL stands for.

Biking the streets and alleys of the Malaysian capital has long been the means to actually see what is happening both in front and behind the scenes, and this travel option just does that in the truest sense of the definition of authenticity. It is here where you meet its residents on their own turf, its street-side life style and gain an insight that there is more than shopping and glancing at the skyline. Guided by the principle that biking brings you to places where cars are not allowed should fuel pedal wanderlust.

Create your own ‘air conditioning’ with this exclusive, leisurely bike ride through the unknown side of Kuala Lumpur.

TRAIL ITINERARY

Kuala Lumpur’s finest by bicycle

08:00 - 12:00

This morning exploration of Kuala Lumpur starts with a comfortable transfer from your accommodation (conditions apply) to the meeting point at the Malaysian Tourism Centre (MaTiC). Scheduled to depart at around 08:00am, guests may already be picked up at around 07:00am. Before you hop on your bike and roam the Kuala Lumpur streets from your saddle, the team on the ground will ensure that your bike is set appropriately for the coming 4 hours.

The 14-kilometre long ride will follow a gentle pace, thus making it an easy ride for anyone. Depending on local conditions, the route is almost never the same: crossing 8 distinctively different areas of Kuala Lumpur, this guided tour does not only put the focus on the centre of the capital. With happening regions outside its central business district, each with its own character and charm, are navigated through and captivates customers from seeing local life from up close and without any car window glare.

During the 4 hours and traversing 8 districts, more than 50 local and internationally-acclaimed landmarks pass the revue with longer stops to walk around and be guided by your trail leader about the ins and outs of each Kuala Lumpur stop we’re making. Ample time is given for photographs and sees what goes around when you park your bike for a moment and stand still to just capture each moment. Before you know it, it is time to slowly make your way back to the Malaysia Tourism Centre (MaTiC) where your driver is ready to bring you back to your accommodation. Expect to be back at the hotel lobby at around 12:30 hrs.
