we took the Bali countryside cycling tour with Kadek, Wayan and Eddie in March (this review is a little late!) and had a fantastic time, the tour is seemlessly organised and offers a variety of routes depending on your confidence levels. We stopped at a coffee and tea plantations, a bamboo plantation, volcano, local villages and a number of temples a long the way before stopping for a fantastic lunch prepared by Eddie's wife. It was definately one of the highlights of our trip, highly recommended!

Excellent activity for all the family. We were picked up from our hotel and went to the volcano. Stopped off at coffee plantation. There was a short car trip after breakfast and we got on our bikes. Mostly it it down hill. Very happy that we went through a bamboo forest as it is something you do not see usually. Went to temples and residences. Cycling is not hard and is easy for both young and old. Mostly it is off the main roads which was good. There is a car which follows so if you want to stop you can. The guides are full of knowledge and are excellent.

We did the bike tour in April and enjoyed the experience as a whole...the ride down hill was such fun (and easy) and views just great.

What was good about it:

>great staff
>fantastic views
>AMAZING lunch at the end
>easy and fun ride all the way down hill

What could be improved:
> fewer people per group (took ages to pick everyone up and drop them off)
> less rushed breakfast at the top of the hiil , the food wasn't all that great either
> spend less time stopping at various spots to see touristy stuff and more time on the bike

All in all great fun, would recommend

There are many cycling tours out of Ubud but after scouting several, I chose this based on the itinerary. I wasn't disappointed. This is a very safe, very gentle route that skips most of the highways and takes you through scenic backroads including a bamboo forest, a Balinese village and a temple (Pura Kehen). Best of all, the guides are informative and accommodating and made the tour really pleasant for someone like me who hadn't ridden a bike in 25 years. With a guide in front, one on the side and at the back, plus a back-up vehicle (which I rode after 2/3s of the way through), this is the safest set-up indeed if you have a weak rider like me in the group. The tour is capped with an excellent traditional lunch set up in a hut in the rice paddies. At 50USD, this tour costs about 20% more than the typical bike tour, but is really worth it for the excellent service. The bike tour is a must-do to see the real Bali.
