Pedal With Sanz......Maiden Excursion!!

Hi there!

We were very happy to receive our first cycling group from Kuala Lumpur to try out our excursions.. . 

Although they came with a mixed of two folding bikes, one road bike and one hybrid bike with slick tires, they were able to ride on sandy and pebbled surfaces. Mountain bikes or bikes with thicker tires will be most suitable for our excursions.

We rode through lovely green paddy fields which were ripening and turning to gold,  along riverbends and just enjoying the picturesque countryside. We also rode on the breakwater with the sea on both sides. Towards the end, we were riding on an empty tarred road that seemed to go on for miles! It was exhilrating!!!

The weather was also on our side for the 3 days as it was mostly cloudy and cool. All in all, it was a good experience for us.....we got to make new friends while showing them the beauty of this island! 

A great start to the new year! Here's to more exciting things to come!

Cheers :)

  1. Great tour blog I like this i am following🌹👍

    1. Hi Yusuf,

      Thank you! Will try to update more frequently.


  2. I am considering cycling up to Hatyai from Singapore. Do you have a recommendation for routes??

    1. Hi Leong,

      Thanks for writing in. As for the routes, you can either go via the west coast or the east coast. I personally prefer the east coast as it will be less traffic and more scenic. The only thing you need to do is to cross voer the mountain range at the north part! It's tough but pretty amazing!

      Anyway, this is my suggested route : Singapore - Sg.Rengit - Kuala Rompin - Kuantan - Kuala Terengganu - Kota Bharu - Jeli - Grik - Sg. Petani - Jitra - Bukit Kayu Hitam - Hatyai. As I have not ridden from Grik to Hatyai before, this is just a suggestion. Please feel free to adjust accordingly to suit your own plans.

      You can actually follow our route from Sg. Rengit onwards to Grik from this blog. My entries from 2009!

      Anyway, hope this helps and you can write to me at if you have further questions.
