What an amazing experience to leave the tourist areas of Ubud, hop onto new bikes (with new helmets), and cycle around the local villages/temples/rice paddy fields of Ubud. We were collected from our hotel exactly on time. Our guide was great explaining and showing us traditional village life in contemporary Bali. His English was excellent and we cycled to the villager's market where the villagers go every day to buy food for the day (very different from the Ubud tourist market). We learned all about the significance of temples as the guide took us around one being prepared for a big ceremony next week, we saw the family compound (large family living), and even went to the local school and chatted with the headmaster and went into the classrooms (hard to imagine overseas tourists coming to Australia and being welcomed into the local school without pre-organisation with the school/education department). It was an awesome bike ride, and definitely a highlight of the our trip. A 'must do' in Ubud and very reasonably priced.

While trying to find something to do for a couple of odd hours in the afternoon our host at the villa suggested we contact her friend who has a bike hiring company. We were not interested in the full afternoon cycling and our very accommodating guide suggested a 2 hour local tour of the Ubud countryside - sounds great.
What a fantastic afternoon - exceptional organisation, impeccable english and an insight into everyday balinese life. We stopped to help harvest rice and toured our guides own home compound for an amazing insight into the social structure. We had a great time and can only recommend Made and his company with the highest praise.

There was 6 of us staying in Ubud and wanting to experience the real (non-tourist) parts of Bali. We would this company to be very friendly and easy to book with. They collected us and took as to the Special Coffee Experience. Then onwards to the Mountain Top Breakfast, which had a great panoramic view while eating. On the bike it was down-hill for most of the journey (only three hills, and only one of them was really a hill, the last one). On the ride we saw so many different and wonderful things and took great photos. For us the most touching moment was the visit to the local school to seeing the children and their excitement. At the end of the ride we ended up back near our hotel and totally buzzing by the whole mornings adventures.

Thank you so much for sharing a real part of Bali with us.

With our two teenage daughters, we really enjoyed the biking tour,organized by Bali Rockiy mountain cycling. We cycled downhill for 3,5 hours from Kintamani, (having lunch with a great view of the Mount Batur) down to Ubud. It was very exciting to bike through the rice fields and tropical fruit plantations, passing various small villages, meeting with the smiling Balinese families and the cheering youngsters and visiting the serene temples in the middle of the jungle. This way we were able to combine sportive activities with a cultural and nature adventure! The bikes were safe and the food was nothing fancy, but tasteful traditional Indonesian food. Great experience !
