Ayer Tawar To Taiping Perak Cycling Route Map (90.67km)

The route mostly runs on slightly busier main roads and is fairly flat except for some gentle slope stretches around Kg. Merebau and along the approach to Taiping from Changkat Jering.
Distance: 90.67 km.     Level: Medium

Gerik To Pulau Banding Perak Cycling Route Map (48.0km)

The route goes along gradual slopes at Federal Route 76 and then onto tougher slopes along the East-West Highway. The tough slopes starts just after the Sungai Lebey R&R and ends just before the first bridge at Tasik Banding lake. The roads are quite narrow, especially at the East-West Highway with hardly any emergency lanes to ride one, so do listen out for heavy vehicles/trucks. Elephants are also known to encroach onto the East-West Highway, there are signboards along the way advising how to react in such a situation, please read and follow their instructions closely.
Distance: 48km.               |               Level: Hard

Climb elevation cross-section with a nett gain of 500 metres spread over 15km. A return trip from Pulau Banding would had been more difficult as this climb would have been spread over half the distance, i.e. 7.5km.
