Topic: Highway that bicycle can not ride

Posted on: 11th Mar 2013 5:41 PM    Quote and Reply

Hi All,


 


I am wondering what kind of highway is the highway that bicycle can not ride. Can I assume that all the road coloured orange in the map are not allow and I can ride all the road coloured in yellow, according to the map below.


 


I wonder whether I can ride on the Pasir Gudang highway which is coloured in Yellow as I am planning to go to Masai and Pontian 3rd week of march.

Nothing wrong with cycling along Nicol Highway or West Coast Highway. You have the right to assume, but why?

Pontian highway have motorcycle lanes in some parts. Would not cycle solo there though, if going in a group maybe better. From kangkar pulai to mas merah is just two lanes each way and there are many express buses and lorries carrying cement and sand going along that route. No lights in most stretches at night. No road shoulders. But less traffic. 

Pasir Gudang highway is more crowded with vehicles but due to jams, not as fast flowing. Still pretty fast doe, and watch out for motorcycles.

personally, unless you think you are confident enough cycling in local expressways, won't cycle at pg highway.

thanks for the advice Stiffler,

I am not sure whether I go to Masai. If my cousin not there anymore, I won't go there and I won't be riding on PG highway.

But I will still go to Potian. I will be travelling in day time. I will leave home around 7am and hope to reach there around 2 or 3pm in the noon.  From my home to Pontian is about 84 km according to the route I mapped. Just nice for me which is not long nor shot.

Would it be easier to cycle into Malaysia via Tuas and exit near kampong ulu choh, bypassing the heavier traffic going towards Senai?

I do not know whether I can go via Tuas. Moreover, I do not know whether authority allow to pass the bicycle via Tuas. I have been to JB via woodland by bycicle. That's why I decided to go via that route.

Hmm. After reading some other threads, seems like cycling in via Woodlands is the easier and safer option. Ride safe!

I thought Tuas was 24hrs, but no bicycles? I would not ride the PG highway...I have ridden it many times on my motorcycle and it is a pretty crazy road...lots of heavy vehicles speeding and cars/motorcycles weaving everywhere...would hate to be on a bicycle there! Riding through JB does not really appeal to me either..if you have a car maybe drive to Gelang Patah and ride from there, I reckon it would be a nicer ride if you could avoid the highways and busy JB roads?
