We took the 2-hour bike trip. It was a nice ride around Ruteng’s beautiful rice fields. But it was much shorter than expected, actually less than 1’5 hours including stops. Too expensive for the 25USD per person you pay. We asked for a discount in view of the above but they refused.

The owners were very attentive and accomodating. The business is run out of the family home, and we had the pleasure of meeting 3 generations as we came and went. Lovely people. All of the bikes are mountain bikes, perfect for the irregular roads of the area. We took a rough but gorgeous back-roads route to the Spiderweb rice fields near the town of Cancar. Easy to plot a route on G Maps - we flanked the shoulder of the mountain to the SW of Ruteng, and then cruised down its lower slopes into Cancar through green farms and villages. When you ride you will want to plan for the afternoon rains that seem to be normal in the area. Also be prepared to be the event of the week as you pass through. Sadly, no one seems to ride bicycles on Flores. That, combined with the fact that very few tourists appear in the surrounding countryside garnered lots of attention, or more frequently, astonishment.

We didn't really know what to do in Ruteng, Flores and found Flores Cycling Tours on Tripadvisor. After a little bit of a search we came to the house that functioned as the office. Here we were met by a sweet lady whom gave us al the information. We chose the 2 hour cycling tour. After the conversation we where led to the bike storage were we could chose our mountain bike. The bikes where in great shape and of high quality! After we picked our bikes another very sweet lady named Lucia (forgive me if i spelled it wrong) who was the wife of the tour guide invited us for some real Flores coffee at her house next to the storage. The next we met our guide at the start of the tour at 7 o'clock in the morning. Our guide named Jovi was so friendly and nice that he made our day already at the start of the tour. During the tour he shows you the most beautiful landscapes in the morning sun and gave a ton of really interesting inside information. He also speaks English very well. After the tour his wife Lucia and here lovely mother cooked cassava for us at their home next to the storage as an extra. The kindness of everybody was very heart warming and made it an even better experience. Thank you very much for the lovely experience We would really recommend everybody this tour if you visit Flores.

Leonardus Nyoman and his team are very professional and warm people. They went to every effort to ensure our tour ran perfectly and provided a memorable morning of mountain bike riding. Leo was very patient with me (a not so experienced and confident bike rider). Fantastic experience which I highly recommend!!

Best way to see Flores. Flores cycling tour is a great company with solid cycling equipment (really solid) and super nice guides. Earlier morning rides without the heat is the nicest way to see the country side.
