Lovely scenery through the tropical, undulating lanes in Tuaran, which is just a short 45 minute journey outside of Kota Kinabalu. All the equipment provided was in good condition and set up according to the individual before setting off. The three hour ride was very pleasant, it took us through the back roads whilst also crossing a few suspension bridges and climbing some challenging hills before stopping at a local restaurant where we had a delicious lunch. They even customised the meal to suit our vegetarian needs. There weren't many downsides although maybe an earlier start time would have been more preferable as it was quite hot cycling at that time of day. Overall, the guides were really friendly and their local knowledge was impressive. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone wishing to have an enjoyable day in the outdoors.

You do not need to be an experienced mountain bike rider to enjoy this. Alex and Chris will guide and explain techniques along the way, the country side is great and local villagers very friendly. Lunch was at a traditional restaurant, and our group was chatty and fun. A great day had by all.

Half done the half day before this was the full day and much more challenging ride and rafting. The guys were great, good bikes, good roads fun for me but still okay for my less experienced friends. Would defiantly recommend and do again. Rafting fun too BBQ was a basic buffet but okay. Only comment helmets only came in S or XL

My wife Michelle and our 2 daughters (aged 14 & 17), did the 1 day mountain bike tour last Monday with the guys from Bike Borneo. We had a fantastic day with a great insight into village life and scenery with Mt Kinabalu as the awesome backdrop. The ride was challenging enough for the whole family, but best of all was the insight shared with us by Dan and Jeffrey. Both of our guides were very generous with their support and information, and gave us a great insight into village life in Borneo. Michael and the support vehicle were always on hand to assist with refreshments and anything else we needed. Overall, a great day. Thanks Bike Borneo. p.s.......ask Dan about 'Houdini' the Turtle!

A very well organised tour from the pick up to drop off. The rafting guides made sure we were safe,but above all that we had fun! This was a level 1/2 trip, a beginner course. It included more swimming than rough rapids.

The bike ride guides were informative, and happy to chat about the farming communities we rode past on quiet back roads. Although they had the potential to cope with more challenging rides, the guides adjusted to our pace. It was hot and humid, so they ensured we had enough to drink and encouraged us to stay hydrated. Very memorable day out.
