Went with Bike Borneo for a combo. First took in the Kiulu rafting through Riverbug - they picked us up at the Shangri-La Rasa Ria and it took about 90 minutes to arrive at the entry point. Great guide and rafting for a 1-2 class 70-90 minute ride. Lots of opportunities to jump in and the water was cool and enjoyable. Not so great with the surrounding countryside as the jungle deforestation continues... After the rafting we took in an average lunch and the got dropped off at Bike Borneo where Simon took my family of three on a 1 hour 30 minute trek through backroad villages, a jungle trek and a quick visit to the local Chinese Pagoda. We really enjoyed it and crossing the various suspended bridges was a highlight. The bikes are good - hard tails and most anyone should be fine. Bike Borneo can set you up for technical downhill MTB if you want but this was good for my family. Would not say easy but not particularly challenging either. We really enjoyed it and the jungle loop was really fun. Try them out - great people who will look after you.

We did the 1 day ride around Tuaran with Steve and Simon and what a great day it was. Prompt pick up at our hotel and then off to get the bikes sorted. As we were the only 2 on the day ride Steve made a point of talking to us about our experience and expectations in order to tailor the ride for us. The ride route took us through some amazing scenery and we felt like we had a great opportunity to experience the real Borneo, riding through rubber plantations, local farming communities and crossing the river on hanging bridges! We had done some biking before so Steve took us along a section of single track which was great and so peaceful in the bush. The ride ended in the town of Tuaran with a well deserved lunch at a local cafe. Overall one of the best days we have had in Borneo, expect to get muddy and sweaty but that's half the fun!

Did Bike Borneo 2 Day trip & had a great time. They have friendly & attentive staff who catered for all our needs..

If you have the time & budget, I would recommend doing the 2Day trip, as it meant we cover some good distance, and spend the night in a local homestay...

Happy travels

We did a beginner ride and had a great time. We went through some very pretty country and also saw how people live in the country nowadays. We got to ride (or push) over hanging bridges and just generally have fun. The guide kept a good pace for the group and was very instructive about how to handle different parts of the ride.

We booked a rafting/riding package with Bike Borneo, wanting to have some fun and stretch some lazy muscles.
Rafting was in conjunction with River Bug, well organised, good equipment and fun guides. Lots of laughter with the splashing wars between rafts.
Bussed back to Bike Borneo, where we met Dan and Richard. What great ambassadors for Sabah! My wife who is still recovering her confidence after a bad road bike fall, was encouraged and by rides end went back to the ricketiest hanging bridge and road it twice with a smile.
Dan is a local, and provided insight into Tuaran and its surrounds, pointing out not just the cultural and commercial aspects, but an insight into how life has changed over three generations for his family. We had a great time on this trip for two, and marvel again at the universal family of cycling.
This is a good young company providing a great product with smart, professional guides. Don't miss out!
