Tips for first time oversea bi­cy­cle tour­ers:

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - OUTDOORS -

· Box up your bike for check in and keep the box at the ho­tel for re-use (on the way back). · Pack light – bring only quick-dry and light­weight cloth­ing. · A rain jacket is in­dis­pens­able. · Bring along a bike bag for the un­avoid­able trips on pub­lic trans­port. · In­stall front and rear lights on your bike for night rid­ing. · Get wa­ter­proof pan­nier bags (or else your clothes will be soaked). · For tours of this du­ra­tion, a pair of rear pan­niers, a rack pack and a han­dle­bar bag are more than ad­e­quate.

Wa­ter­proof pan­nier bags are cru­cial for cy­cle tour­ing.
