Its roads only in Malaysia.
You have to get used to riding on the road.
The roads are wide and the cars will drive with reasonable proximity away from you.

Hi

Anyone interested please PM, cycle to Malacca as I will be using MTB with rigid fork and stick tyres. I am not a hardcore cyclist, therefore we will had lot of breaks in-between. For the dates it is flexible, but not fall on 13-18Jun and 01-09Jul.

*Prefer 2days, a night in the hotel and departure at 5am. No nights riding. Interested PM

I use ORUX maps (android app).
Its served me well on a few trips overseas.
The map is downloaded onto the phone so that I don't need to rely on data which can be finicky in unpopulated places.

A phone with good battery capacity works well enough nowadays imo.
I use a Redmi Note3, and at the end of 13hr rides, the phone usually is left with 40% battery capacity. (screen set to off after 5mins )


Basically, try out what you will ride/use locally before heading out overseas.


If you want to log your trip, Strava works w/ or w/o data.
W/o data, it won't show the map, but the logging only needs GPS, so it will still log the trip.

Hi Sysk,

What do you meant by "2 days and a night"? 2 days from Sg to Malacca?
