Owner description: Fabulous Bali cycling and riding and tour experience, with our mountain bikes to enjoy the whole heart of Bali in a glimpse ! a must have memory for every tourist. Lovely cycling experience. Working out on the 3 uphill climbs and you wll now well gravity worrks. The best genuine experience of our entire balinese culture at a glimpse by riding 95% only through wonderful landscape of ubud and ancient balinese way ancient of life.

There were 6 of us in our group and we were picked up promptly for an early morning drive to Ubud. Once there, Bob was the ultimate guide and offered to take my elderly Mum on the tandem bike with him for the first part which was a lovely gesture and well appreciated. Once past the uneven road bit (about 2 kms), she hoped onto her own bike and rode the rest of the way with the gentle encouragement of the staff. Both Bob and his support staff were fantastic and the lunch at his house at the end - Wow! For the rest of our stay in Bali I tried to get a repeat order of tempeh which his wife made but nothing ever came close to her recipe! The lunch was superb and location was beautiful. Well done Bob on such a good experience.

I know there are many other operators offering the same type of trip but the lunch at the end was better than almost all other meals we had while in Bali :)

We booked the tour because someone recommended it to us and it was totally worth it. Mostly down hill and just 2 or 3 small parts where it's going really steep up hill - you can push the bike up easily! The food was awesome, thanks to the wife and Bob himself, had an awesome day.

They pick you up at your hotel and first there's a stop where you have an amazing view over rice teraces. Then the driver takes you to a coffee plantation and gives a lot of information about the nature and all the different types of plants growing in Bali. You try different kinds of tea and coffee and there's a nice breakfast (rice rolls (like pancakes) filled with shredded coconut. You can get a cup of the famous Kopi Luwak for 50'000 RP (around 4 dollars). It's not that special though ;)
After the plantation you drive up for a short stop with a wonderful view of a vulcano and a lake next to it - stunning.
After that you get the bikes and drive for 2-3 hours. Very nice villages, temples, forests.. Then you get a AWESOME lunch at Bob's house with an introduction to the balinese homes.
Totally recommend this tour.

Wonderful experience with Bali on Bike. Bob looked after the small group all the way. Stunning views and easy downhill glide most of the way. Seeing rural Bali was great and meeting school kids along the way. At the end of the ride Bob took us to a relatives traditional Indonesian home for a wonderful lunch - thank you so much for an insightful and love look at Bali. Picked up from Hotel 1 hr away by one of their drivers in a van. No seatbelts for the back seats of the van, which is the only downside.

A great day out and to see the 'locals' Bali. Everything is included, lunched at the end is amazing, prepared by the tour guide's wife.

The tour guide is Bob, who is a legend.. Very friendly and informative.

Easy ride, not strenuous... You drive up to the volcano and basically cycle all the way back to Ubud, mainly down hill, taking in lovely rice field vistas and villages.

Highly recommend as top thing to do in Bali.

Thanks bob! :)
