We move ever closer to Kuala Lumpur, with a mixed day of cycling.
A lot of main roads as you would expect nearing the capital of Malaysia. There were a couple of quiet sections along the way, we even managed to find a small gravel track. There was a hill or two thrown in for good measure as well.

As predicted the bed had seen better days and sleeping on springs is not a restful way of spending the night. We still bounced our way out looking forward to a good days cycling.
Colourful fishing boats waiting for the tide
Today was the complete opposite of yesterday, no main roads at all. To start off it was 2.5 km down to the ferry.

The cycle today was mainly along the 5 a main road. Straight out of the hotel doors and turn left onto the 5.

We had a very relaxing day doing nothing, not many pictures at all. It did mean we are actually planned over a week ahead now, which is very unusual for us.
It did rain very heavily around 3:30 pm but we just watched it bounce off the road from the dry of a small restaurant.

Leaving Pantai Remis along the 60 through the middle of town we made a quick stop to pick up some water from the 7/11 then continued on the main road.

After the main roads of yesterday the first 15 kilometres today was beautiful cycling, small zero traffic roads. We passed a lot of palm oil plantations, a couple of very small villages and lots of cattle. A good start to the day.
Animals, birds and trees. Something for everyone.
Today was our shortest day for a while so a 9:30 am start, nice and leisurely.
A nice rustic boat and woodyard
Having stared at the map for a long time, the only way onwards was very small back roads just a dotted line on the map or highway 1. It was off on the small side roads then, we managed to stick to the route for 1.5 kilometres before we met a road closed.
Cycling the main road
After three nights in George Town it was time to wave it goodbye. A couple of kilometres through the old town area brought us back to the ferry.
