Sg Koyan to Ringlet Highway

This is a brand new highway that connect the inner Pahang to the Cameron Highlands. The road is from the junction at Sg Koyan straight to Ringlet for approximate distance of 81km. There is no R&R stop along the new highway.

As expected the road climbs from 109m to 1095m with gradual climb for the first 45km. Then some moderate climb till 65km where there is some water point for you to refill your bottle. (a life saver!) The last climb till Ringlet is a bit harder but manageable with low gear if you are riding a fully loaded bike. No problem if you are riding a road bike, though.

The scenery is beautiful where you can see some matured tropical jungle of the Taman Negara (National Park). The road is brand new with detour in our spot due to major landslide. However, at this moment (June 2010) the last 16km is still unfinished. You will ride on some compact sub-base and concrete in some area. No problem.

However, be careful if you ride at night, because according to the locals there were some incidents involving the indigenous people who drank too much and disturbing the passerby whether you are on bikes or in cars. Actually, we experienced some people observing us on their motorbike while we were riding at night. Luckily nothing happen.

So if you want to try the route, start early and bring along ample supply of water and food. And enjoy the ride. One more thing, don't forget to bring a duct tape along!

Good Luck!

This is a truly beautiful route. Thanks for sharing. I must try it one day soon when I get back to the region. So glad to see the S8 going places with you! :)

Al, S8 is a kick ass folding bike. I love its simplicity and durability. FYI, I am in full foldie touring mode right now coz I just found out that there is a foldie touring club in Malaysia. And more and more people are riding folding bike nowadays. Cheers.

Hi,

My name is Andy and I just wanted to say thanks for the blog as it has helped me with planning a trip to tour from Singapore to Bangkok. I am planning at this point to head from Singapore up the east coast of Malaysia and then cut across to Penang via the Cameron highlands. If you have time to share any of your experience or suggested routes I would be very grateful. I plan to travel in late October early November weather permitting. I'm from Melbourne Australia so if you have any questions about Australia then fire away and I'll do my best to answer them.

Regards,
Andy

In actual fact, NFL jerseys are generally one of many quickest marketing collectors items around athletics Typically at this point of the summer, fanatics have been all too busy breaking down the significance of free-agent moves while attempting to forecast how rookies will fit into their new roles as depth chart hierarchy becomes clearerAs individuals have a lot more money than before, they may carry authentic jerseys rather than replica ones And every the details on here are quite charming, such as the number of the specific member of some football teams4 Or maybe the mug was given to you as a special collector item the night of an important game for your team
