Penang Malaysia Cycling Route Maps
Penang, although one of the smaller states in Malaysia has many interesting cycling routes. One can cycle along the beaches or up to the hills. OR cycle round the whole island without really getting lost, after all it's an island! And most of all Penang is about food too, being named as one of the best places to eat in many publications.
Below are maps of several routes that my cycling buddies & me had cycled in the state, i.e. both on the mainland and on Penang Island.
Click on the relevant screen zoom rectangle (at the top right hand corner of each map) to go to the respective route map:
