A “Must Do” Ubud experience….

Getting a little “off the beaten track” in Bali is always a treat!  One of the best ways to do this is to join a cycling group through the streets of outer Ubud.

I first enjoyed the Bali Bike Baik tour nearly a decade ago, when it was newly formed and the owner Wayan hosted the tour himself.  I was travelling with my children at the time and it was a memorable, happy and full day out.

The second occasion was more recently when I travelled with a longtime girlfriend.  This was another remarkable day, where I witnessed first hand the blossoming of Wayan’s business after a decade of hard work.

An early AM pickup from your hotel sees you arrive at a coffee plantation, enjoy a smorgasbord breakfast overlooking Mt Batur, cycle mostly down-hill, riding through local villages, rice paddies and schools and back to a delicious buffet feast at the owner, Wayan’s compound.  Wayan’s talented wife and family cook incredibly tasty dishes.  There was more than we could eat!

It was delightful to be greeted by children in villages running out to say “Halo” and offering “high 5’s” as you ride along village roads. Comfortable, frequent stops with cold towels and water is offered. All of this with the safety of an air-conditioned backup vehicle following, should you tire.

A delightful day & great value for money! A truly wonderfull way to experience outer Ubud and receive local information along the way. So informative and scenic as well as 100% owned & operated by Balinese!

On both occasions, this cycling tour was one of the highlights of our trip.  A truly wonderful experience and well recommended!!
