Meet your driver upon pickup from your hotel in Sanur, Kuta, Seminyak, Nusa Dua, or Ubud. You'll be transferred to a central meeting point at Madu Sari restaurant in Batur village for morning tea. Your guide will assign you a comfortable mountain bike and make any proper adjustments, followed by a safety briefing in preparation for your cycling trip into the green heart of Bali, where you're greeted with a cooler climate.
Your ride begins at Pludu village, following a path through laid-back villages along little-used roads and sometimes muddy tracks. Start by going downhill past the picturesque villages, fertile rice fields, and decorative temples of traditional Bali. You'll make plenty of stops to soak up the views, including the local landmark, Mt. Batur.
Upon reaching the village of Taro, your guide will explain about Hinduism and its importance to the local community and throughout Bali. Observe women tending their crops in the verdant rice paddies, and stop at a typical Balinese compound where you can walk around and see how little life has changed over the years.
Once lunch is served at a local restaurant in Ubud, slowly return to the starting point to meet the driver that will take you back to your hotel in Southern Bali or Ubud.
