The Taman Sari Cycling Trek

Our starting point is a traditional Balinese compound outside of Penebel. Here we will choose our bicycles and take them for a test ride. Keen cyclists have the option of venturing 2 kilometers off-road through narrow winding jungle paths. The second option would be to take the main road to the banyan tree where our two paths meet.

From here we riding alongside the labyrinth of channels and canals known as ‘subak’. There is something eminently peaceful in just relaxing in the sadle and allowing the images appear.

These manmade watercourses have shaped the island’s landscape for well over a thousand years, and are an integral part of the agricultural and religious life on the island. Rice is seen as a gift from the gods and the subak system is an important part of temple culture.

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 can be challenging – remember you can always choose a less challenging route, or ride in our support van.

REQUIRED FITNESS LEVEL

For the most part the ride is downhill and requires that you are a comfortable bike-rider, who can manoeuvre different terrains.

SUPPORT VAN

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, if you should get tired.
