Cycling in Penang




          
In the past few years, cycling and mountain biking have become an increasingly popular activity in Penang. The number of cycling clubs in the state attest to this popularity. Since the inscription of the inner city of George Town as a World Heritage Site, efforts have been made to make it more friendly to cyclists. On weekends, part of the city around the Esplanade is closed to traffic so that people can walk and cycle.

Whether its called cycling or mountain biking, both involves very much the same type of cycles. You can see convoys of cyclists on the road in Penang, particularly during the weekends. If you want to join any of them, I've assembled the contact below so you can get in touch.

One of the main cycling clubs open to new members is the G Club, which is sponsored by G Hotel. The club was formed in 2009 and has been active in promoting cycling as a recreational activity. The club has also proposed the implementation of cycling lanes and grading of roads according to level of cycling difficulty.
