General Cycling Info for Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

In the city, cycle on the blue cycling lane as much as possible to be on the right side of the law. Of course there are inconsiderate motorists who park on the blue cycling lane.

 

 

1.    Cycling tracks are shared with joggers. They may be jogging on the cycling side. Its okay to share the track with them but ring your bike bell (mandatory equipment by law).

 

2.    Be careful of fallen coconut fronds.

3.    Be careful at road crossings. Cars have the right of way. The bollards are there for a reason.

4.  Be careful especially along the Imago stretch. There are low overhanging trees . The branches can whip your head. If in a group, signal cyclists behind you by gesturing over your helmet.

5.  Some parts of the tracks have tree root outcrops. This is hazardous at night and can throw you off balance resulting in a fall. This is adjacent to SOCSO building. Gesture to cyclists behind you by pointing downwards.
