Kedah Cycling Route Maps
Below are maps of routes that we rode in Kedah. These were routes we used while cycling down from Pandang Besar to Penang. Hopefully, in future I will have more tours in the state and be able to add more maps here.
Click on relevant screen zoom rectangle (at the top right hand corner of each map) to go to the respective route map:

Ayer Hitam To Yan Kedah Cycling Route Map (70.0km)
The route is mainly on the coast and starts from Ayer Hitam at the border of Kedah and Perlis goes along a canal to head for the coast. At several stretches it detours slightly inland to avoid the bad coastal tracks (which were muddy or full of rubbish). It goes through several fishing villages and the town of Kuala Kedah. Just before ending at Yan, was a detour to Pulau Bunting along the Bunting Island Bridge.
Cycling Distance: 70.00 km.     Level: Medium

This is a combined map of the cycling routes done over a few days shown here for easier reference.

Kulim To George Town Kedah-Penang Cycling Route Map (48km)

Cycling Route: Kulim (Kedah>Lunas>Kubang Semang>Permatang Pauh>Mak Mandin>Butterworth>George Town (Penang Island).
This route from Kulim to Penang Island avoids using as much as the main roads as possible. Instead of going through the busy roads at Bukit Mertajam, it takes the northern approach via Lunas and Kubang Semang to reach Butterworth through Permatang Pauh & Mak Mandin.
