Kiulu Valley Day Ride
A wild day out for the energetic!
After a short briefing and bike fitting, you will head out for one of the most beautiful rides in rural Sabah. We cycle through small riverside villages which are home to the Dusun tribal people as well as jungle, plantations and the Dusun people’s farms. The hills are thankfully few, far apart and short on the main route but if you are feeling like stretching your legs a little, our guides can take you off to explore some more adventurous trails with single-track and technical descents. A support vehicle is nearby at all times should a problem occur.
The ride will take you from starting lower ground with nice and easy ride, and comes the real challenge with long uphill! What goes up, must go down- Nice downhills to ease your leg with breeze.
