Great little tour! Not v.exhausting, well-kept mountain bikes riding leisurely over mostly flat terrain. Takes in local villages, rice museum (better than it sounds), plenty of local flora and fauna, Cenang beach, and fishing village. Fresh fruit and local dishes at end. No helmets. Well spoken guides
