Start cycling SE Asia: Looking for routes from Bali to Sumatra

Hi all,

I'm quite new here at WS so indulge me if I come across somewhat naive.

Me and my partner are planning to cycle across SE Asia, starting end of August. This will be our first big cycling trip, although we plan a test trip in a few months.
Looking at the rain season, it seemed ok if we start in Bali and head up to Sumatra, before taking a ferry and moving up to Malaysia.

Would anyone have any idea where to find good routes for cycling, while avoiding the busy roads? What is usually used to navigate: physical maps or are there many good online routes to be found?

Cheers,

Nicolas

From Bali to Sumatra

Hi,

first some congrats to you.

 

- Bali got a pretty busy traffic. There's just a little difference to Java.

In Sumatra you'll get really tough "rolling hills".
