For those cyclists planning to do Batam, esp the Barelang Highway, please note that 3 of our friends have been infected with Malaria in the last few weeks. One is v seriously ill.

Please avoid for now, or if you plan to go, get some anti-Malaria medication from your Drs.

very unfortunate.

I was there to the end of barelang twice on 2012 Q4.

I guess some made the classic mistake of resting near a forested area.
Check if your fast riders were spared from malaria.
Those who dont stop dont get bitten by insects. Same rule also applies on trails.
