One of the best ways to see the real Bali is to hop on a bike and ride through Balinese Villages. We were picked up from our Villa by Ketut and then our first stop was a visit to the coffee plantation near Ubud. We then had breakfast at Mt Batur overlooking the valley and the mountains. We then started our bike ride. We stopped whenever we wanted to take some pics and to visit a temple. At the end of the ride we had a lovely lunch. This was the best day we had in Bali and you don't have to be super fit to do this ride. The scenery and the company was fantastic. Would highly recommend doing this tour.
Great cycling experience, amazing people running it who were very attentive and safe. Guides at the front and back of our pack. The bikes themselves were in great condition. The cycling itself is at least 80 downhill and despite going through a few tight tracks, shouldnt be challenging to even novice riders. What the description doesnt do justice to though in my opinion is the visits on route to rice fields and a coffee plantation making the famous Luwak coffee. Plus the exceptional view we got whilst eating our late breakfast. Both meals were at off the beaten track family run local restaurants which wed have been unlikely to find by ourselves one requires walking through a field and crossing small rivers on branch bridges A full day out and really great value !
This experience was definitely my highlight of my trip to Bali. It was so much better than expected. The staff were very helpful as they safely helped us across the busy roads of Bali, but also extremely friendly and funny too. There's so much more than just cycling as you visit other places and learn so much about the culture. This adventure lasts for the whole day and it's very value for money. The cycling was relatively easy as it was mostly all downhill, and the views you cycle past are beautiful! Would most definitely do it all again!
My favorite part of this bike tour was actually the beginning, where we went to the coffee plantation, visited the rice paddies, and had lunch overlooking Mt. Batur. The rest of the tour was a bit dragged - it was cool to see the backroads of Ubud, but after the 3rd hour, we were basically riding through very similar neighborhoods, i think the ride could do without the water temple stop - not very impressive and we couldn't go to the temple, just look at it from afar. Also, i would suggest they do breakfast first, rather than after the coffee plantation and rice paddies, since we basically ended up eating breakfast at 11:30, then lunch an hour later. Everything else was great - we loved the bamboo forest, and lunch overlooking the mountain was amazing! Ubud is amazing.
This was without a doubt one of the best things that I did with my three boys. All of the staff we dealt with were friendly, caring and happy. We had an excellent day and would recommend this for anyone who wished to get out and enjoy the countryside.
Absolutely enjoyed our cycling adventure. The guides were very professional and helped marshal traffic when cycling on the roads. They also helped tailor the trail to fit our experience and fitness. We enjoyed the ride which was mostly downhill and fairly easy for us.
Was an interesting, well paced tour.
Be warned that travelling from the south of the island, Jimbaran as we did will take a considerable time due to traffic, especially getting through Ubud.
That said once at the start point, the journey through the back alleys gave a different view to that usually experienced on the road. The bikes could have done with some maintenance, but all in all an enjoyable couple of hours.
Other than a couple of minor kick-ups the entire route is downhill so suitable for most.
