Having gained popularity in the past years, cycling has been recognised as a national pastime. Cyclists can often be seen pedaling on weekends, especially on Sundays during Bandarku Ceria.
Cycling is made even more special with the active participation of His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di- Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam.
On March 1, 2020, His Majesty participated in a cycling event together with more than 1,000 people in conjunction with Brunei’s 36th National Day.
Hiking has become one of the most popular recreational activities in Brunei Darussalam to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Among the hiking trails in the country are Bukit Shahbandar Forest Recreation Park; Tasek Lama Recreational Park, Bandar Seri Begawan; Wasai Wong Kadir Recreational Park, Labi; Bukit Batu Bujang Pahang; Bukit Patoi Forest Recreational Park; and Bukit Saeh.
Also known as Bukit Korea, Bukit Sum Sum is a popular hiking spot for outdoor enthusiasts, along with Bukit Sipatir in Kampong Subok.
