The Essence of Bali Cycling Trek
We begin our cycling trek in the small village of Telamba. From Telamba we will ride through the ‘Valley of Oranges’, Bali’s agricultural heartland. We’ll take the small off-road paths and enter a bamboo forest. Here we’ll have the opportunity to learn about different species of
bamboo and their importance to Balinese culture and religion.
Hidden behind lush vegetation stands an ancient Hindu temple from the 10th century. Its uniqueness has called many Balinese to take a pilgrimage to this sacred site to meditate
and express their devotion to God.

Gratitude to guides
This ride is rated leisurely, meaning it’s appropriate for riders who enjoy a more gentle ride but can also handle some short climbs and exhilarating descents.
Much of the time we will be riding downhill; occasionally there are places with more challenging inclines and terrains.
There are a few options sections of narrow single track through dense vegetation which are challenging – you can choose a less challenging route, or ride in our support van.
Required Finess Level
For the most part the ride is downhill and requires an average fitness level.
There are a few inclines and the occasional challenging hill, so you need to be a comfortable rider who can maneuver different terrains.
On all our cycling trips a support vehicle accompanies the riders.
Any time you’d like to be transferred rather than ride the support van is always nearby.
With this high level of vehicle support you can confidently book a particular activity level knowing that there is back-up should you get tired.
Attire and what to bring:
Please wear athletic shoes or closed toes shoes for your ride. We strongly recommend you not wear flip flops or sandals without strap
T-shirt or similar that covers the shoulders. The reason is that we will enter sacred areas.
Please apply plenty of sunscreen before the ride and protect your eyes with sunglasses.
Cap that fits under the helmet is a great way to protect the eyes.
Bring a change of cloths
You are welcome to bring a camera to document memories of the stunning vistas.
You may spot something along the way you would like to purchase, so be sure and have some pocket money.
For your comfort, please also bring a thick jumper or jacket for the morning mountain chill.
Please inform your guides of any important information that you think can affect the ride (e.g. allergies, previous injuries etc)

In case of a more severe injury, we will transport you to nearest and highly qualified hospital, which will attend to your needs. Please make sure you have your own personal injury/ accident insurance in case any severe accident/ injury would happen to you.
