Pre-requisites for this program include having basic biking skills. The 20km trail consists of mostly dirt roads and the remainder is on small village roads with minimum traffic, so you will be required to climb up and ride down the hillside slopes of Tuaran town. Be prepared for physical exertion as well as hot and humid weather during the long trail. And if at any time you feel unwell or in need of rest, a support vehicle is always on standby not far from you.
The program is made for the adventurous – facilities en route might not be many as the district is truly off the beaten track and less-travelled by tourists. But you will be able enjoy scenic views and unspoiled nature here. To add to the thrill, you will cross rivers by cycling at hanging bridges found along the way.
