|The only high lights of this ride were the big bridge just before the border on the Malaysian side and KB itself was interesting, other wise its fairly flat and uninspiring scenery.|
With crazy traffic, air pollution, limited open spaces or parks, heat, humidity & often no beaches for miles, SPORT in S.E Asia can be a challenge! Posting since 2009, these are my stories of cycling, running, swimming, football, cricket, cross-fit, rock climbing, adventure racing, street chess & many more sports in S.E Asia; including Vietnam, Cambodia, Philippines, Malaysia & Sarawak, China, Singapore, Japan, Borneo, Bali..and a few adventures from Australia.

Biked to Brunei for brunch
Miri to Kuala Belait, just across the Brunei border, is around 65km. The border crossing takes a few minutes (for Australians anyway) as you need to get a visa - for $20. They only take Brunei currency so its good to prepare and grab some B$ before leaving Miri. The other reason for doing that is there is very limited drink stops between leaving Miri and KB. When you cross the border you may need to re-fuel at the one gas station you will pass. I ran dry and bonked too - by the time I got to KB I was spent and had to scoff 2 danishes and a sweet ice coffee to recover. The ride back was a breeze -admittedly I had a tail wind and with no visa to process coming back in, I was door to door in around 2;20 hrs.
