No wonder I see people on a bike with complete gear sometimes in the village. Maybe is them, and they being around since 1999. It is a good activity and business. Nature friendly and step on the Melaka ground on your foot. Generally is safe to go anywhere by bicycle here in Melaka. Your may experience the unexpected at the friendly neighborhood like free lunch at a Malay wedding ceremony or eat fresh local fruit from the tree. No wild animal on the forest, but you can see monkeys, fox, squirrel, anteater, tortoise or maybe you must apply little cautions on wild boar.
