The Trip

A wild 11-day bicycle ride through Malaysian Borneo led by Bangkok-based 
Grasshopper Adventures, which runs bike, photography and trekking trips through Asia’s off-the-beaten track locales. 


Where You Go

The trip kicks off in Kota Kinabalu, the capital of Sabah, heading north along the coast for a few days before reaching the tip of Borneo, where the South China and Sulu seas meet. The route then loops south to the Poring hot springs, before ending in Sandakan in the east.


What You Do

Rides, rated moderate to difficult, range from 35 to 68 kilometers per day. You’ll cruise along languorous coastal roads, densely forested hills and isolated tracks through pristine farmland. The trip culminates in a visit to the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre, where you’ll learn about efforts to save these amazing—and highly endangered—close relatives to man.
