KOMPAS.com – The historic cultural city of Yogyakarta in Indonesia plans to introduce several new bike routes to its residents and cycle tourists, offering more attractions to fascinate visitors while riding their bikes.

“We have initiated some new routes but those are still not fixed as the plan is still being reviewed,” said Traffic Division head of the Yogyakarta Transportation Agency Windarto Koeswandono.

“Every Friday we will arrange bike rides along the new routes. That’s the big plan,” Windarto told Kompas.com on Monday, August 24.

He said the selected routes should help promote more tourist destinations in the city so that the visitors will not only enjoy cycling on familiar routes such as the iconic Malioboro Street and Tugu Yogyakarta, a centuries-old monument in the heart of the city.

Under the plan, the routes will include historical villages in Kota Gede, museums, and the Yogyakarta Palace. He said the plan has already been sent to the Yogyakarta tourism agency for their consideration to create a new package for the cycle tourism.
