We meet at 9am at the Pekan Rabu jetty in Kuah town to take the boat to the neighbouring island of Tuba. When we reach the island, we make sure everyone is set with the bikes and can bicycle safely and comfortably before starting the tour. The tour takes us from one fishermen's jetty to the next, using the few only available roads. Traffic is almost nonexistent, which makes Tuba the perfect place to explore by bike. Expect picturesque scenery, never ending jetties and loads of local fishing boats. We make frequent stops to replenish on water and take a break in the shade. We also stop in typical Malays food stalls to taste some local snacks. Finally, we take the boat back to our starting point, which we typically reach between 4 to 5pm.
My name is Sandra Loh and I organize bicycle tours on the beautiful island of Langkawi, Malaysia. I am an official tour guide and love to share my passions for biking and nature with my guests. I have personally selected scenic trails to ensure you will discover the best of the island at your own very pace on a quality mountain bike. From the paddy (rice) fields and plantations to the rural "kampung" villages, expect to see places few tourists normally see. As the founder of "PedalWithSanz", I am looking forward to taking you on a unique tour that will be one of the highlights of your stay!

The tour starts and ends in Kuah Town, Langkawi. Enjoy a short boat ride to tuba island, which is dubbed "Langkawi in the 80s" by the locals, before the tourism boom. Don't expect flashy beach bars playing trendy lounge music. Everything in Tuba is authentic, from the typical Malay food stalls to the numerous fishermen's jetties as fishing is main activity on the island.
