Home TRAVELING Outing Biking With Kids | Penang East Coast Cycling Trails

You might have heard of the famous East Coast Park and its wonderful biking trails in Singapore. If you're new to Penang, let me reveal that Penang has a similar one in the making. Honestly, I feel intimated going on the roads with other motorized vehicles on the island of Penang nowadays hence I constantly on the search for a decent biking trail to ride with Austin on the island.

Besides getting Austin a child's helmet, we also bought a child bike seat that we'd been eyeing since several months ago. Finally, we fixed the child seat and ready for biking adventures. Sungai Pinang or fondly known as Penang Promenade by the sea that offers a strip of 3 km is certainly a venue to bike while enjoying the waterfront. We however wanted to explore the one that is closer to home with our two-wheelers.

Penang East Coast Cycling Trail

For cycling enthusiasts in Pantai Jerejak, Batu Uban or Sungai Nibong neighborhoods, Penang East Coast Biking Trail is equally decent. Paved on the reclaimed land, this stretch is going to be the longest biking trail connecting George Town to Bayan Baru township. At present, phase I of 2.8 km route looks ready. Offering an exciting stretch, we explored it for the second time when the first mission was not accomplished. Starting from Pantai Jerejak Jetty, we hit on Persiaran Bayan Mutiara 2 that is adjacent to Tun Lim Chong Eu Coastal Highway heading north, passing Batu Uban Fisherman's Wharf, cycling underneath the flyovers that joined to Penang Bridge until the first tower of The Light waterfront residential project. 

Despite the heat and humidity, Austin seemed to enjoy the ride and the beautiful waterfront at the same time. No complaint nor grouses, we're looking forward to bike every week!

Start: 5.342946,100.31118 - Pulau Jerejak Jetty – Point A
End: 5.359247,100.316588 - The Light Waterfront residential – Point B
Total distance: 2.8 km
p.s. Safety first. We practice "No helmet, no ride" policy!
