Penang Highlands Premier Ride.
The enchanting highlands of Penang have so much allure that it is impossible to complete in a single outing.
The backbone of the island and with its vast network of trails made it possible to start our ride at almost anywhere.

A single word – INTIMATELY, that is how well we know our local trails.

The fragrance of this tour lies in its alluring uniqueness found along the journey itself. To travel by bicycle is to never actually arrive, the journey itself is the destination.

Lose yourself in the network of single trails – get mesmerize with the view from the top of the peaks, the rugged western coastline with its secluded beaches or the magnificent flower filled Blue Valley from the top of Mount Elvira.

Enjoy the best Mountain Biking routes on the island and get prepared to be teased by highlights and surprised yourselves with wonders you never knew exist.

This is a highly personalized tour where we had often taken out a single client on each of our outing – to suit the ability of rider/s, things that they are expecting and with our believe that each and every traveller is unique. We shall only assemble a group if you have made a group booking consisting of among your own friends or family members. However, each group outing is limited to a maximum of 6 riders only. Much of the places we are riding along are secluded and keeping a small numbers of riders are important to maintain the privacy of small and remote settlements that we will be passing along.

The members of our crew particular your guides are highly experience and are able to evaluate your ability as we ride along – routes and places presented will depend on this assessments. Most importantly, we take into consideration what you are looking for. We have routes rated from easy, moderate to challenging.

Princilia, SJ and team were fantastic. I had signed up for the Penang Highlands Premier Ride on 22 July , the team accommodated my lack of mountain cycling skills and customised the cycling accordingly to make it more a country side bike tour with a hike through plantations and hills. I appreciated their flexibility and thoroughly enjoyed the outing – riding through the country side and hamlets,walking through the plantations and seeing a side of Penang I haven’t visited. Felt welcome in the places we visited thanks to Princilia’s connections with the locals. She went out of her way to accommodate and make it such a memorable experience for me – from eating local food (durians too!), learning about the places to showing me the finer skills of mountain biking – I ended the day with a much better appreciation of this sport! Highly recommend Matahari if you are looking for a unique and thorough fun adventure in Penang.
