Overview

After the success of the first Tour de Singkarak in 2009, Indonesia will hold the second international cycling event, starting on June 1st. It'll be livelier with more participants, longer routes and bigger prizes.

Twenty teams and three hundred guest cyclists will be coming from overseas, pitted against fifteen teams from across Indonesia. The route will span up to six regencies, covering up to 700 km, a 235 km increase from last year's. The tour itself will take about 6-7 days, while last year it only took three.

 

 

An overview of the route:

1.       Padang (time trial)
2.       Padang-Padang Pariaman
3.       Padang Pariaman-Maninjau
4.       Maninjau-Bukittinggi
5.       Padang Panjang-Bukittinggi
6.       Bukittingi -Sawahlunto
7.       Sawahlunto-Singkarak

A major part of Tour de Singkarak 2009's success was because of the fabulous scenery and landscapes along the challenging routes. This year's no different. The Maninjau-Bukittinggi route, for instance, is famous for its Kelok 44, a long series of uphill and downhill roads with hard turns. Bukittinggi, Maninjau Lake, and Sawahlunto are also popular natural attractions for foreign visitors. And to top it off, the event will also feature arts and performances in several spots, including Maninjau and Tanah Datar.
