To start our adventure today, you will be picked up from your Bali city hotel. Firstly you will enjoy breakfast overlooking the volcano and lake Batur. Cycling adventure through the countryside will bring you up close and personal with friendly local people, their unique culture, beautiful villages, stunning landscapes and amazing ancient temples. Exploring the island of God on two wheels is by far the best way to get a fantastic and memorable experience as we will take you to discover the hidden gems of our island through some peaceful 'off-the-beaten-track' cycling routes accessible only by bike.
Wide range selection of cycling tracks are available for you. Not only rural villages and rice paddies, we offer you more: off-road paths, secret back roads, dense plantations and bamboo forest are just a few of them. Our routes are also flexible and can accommodate any level of experiences. From the easiest to the most challenging are available depend on your requests and preferences.
One of favorite and most memorable routes is when we cycle past an amazing 7.5 hectare of bamboo forest. The forest is located in Kubu Village, Bangli regency, about 30 kms north east from Ubud. While riding, you will also have opportunities to see traditional craftsmen at work inside the forest or watch local people cutting down the bamboo for various purposes.
By visiting these two famous sites, you can learn and discover more about Balinese culture. Note that we will go inside the temple (not just peeking from the outside). All entrance fees, tickets and sarong have been covered in the price.
This full day downhill bike tour will take you far away from the regular touristy itinerary and ride deep into rural Bali where you will be able to witness firsthand the daily life of the Balinese people, their local customs and rituals as well as their age-old traditions. Lunch will be served in a local Balinese restaurant. After this day full of excitement, you will be transferred back to hotel by our air-con van.

Highly recommend this cycling adventure. Highlights were the beautiful scenery, the amazing food and hospitality and the ease of the ride as it was mostly downhill.
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 !
Great cycling tour. Off the beaten track a little and track gets a little tricky in parts but worth the effort.
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!
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.
Brilliant day from start to finish, well looked after at every stage of the trip. Cycling was very easy, mainly downhill, which allowed you to focus on where you were and to enjoy the sites, sounds and smells of non-touristy parts of Bali. Loved cycling through the bamboo jungle, rice fields, even through a bustling local market, not to mention occasionally on the main roads!! We've done numerous trips in Bali all over the island and this is up there with the best of them.
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.
Bali Hai Tours ran this trip..pick up was good from. hotel in Ubud..stops at rice terrace,coffee plantation and mount batur ..nice photo opportunity. Then main cycle..long day day but cycling really easy 95% down hill...thru villages and the real Bali. Bikes ok but a little worn. Overall worth it.
We are the first and still the only company to offer a truly unique and authentic bicycle trip by combining sightseeing, coffee plantation tour and cultural insight with cycling activities through the unspoiled breathtaking countryside. This full day downhill bike tour will take you far away from the regular tourist itinerary and 'off-the-beaten-track' deep into rural Bali where you will be able to witness firsthand the daily life of the Balinese people, their local customs and rituals as well as their age-old traditions.
