Ubud bike ride
We begin our journey in Penestanan Kaja (a small village northwest of central Ubud).
You will enjoy cycling alongside the rice fields which have inspired painters and poets for centuries.
This lush landscape has also attracted Western artists and travellers since at least the 1930s. Along the way one might see local farmers, ducks, exotic tropical birds like the kingfisher, fighting cocks in their rattan cages, small lizards and swarms of voracious dragonflies. One will see banyan trees, temples large and small and special sacred sites which might be wrapped in a special black and white checkered cloth called poleng.
Continuing on, we enter small, narrow alleys which zigzag across stone paths, the trail then opening onto a landscape where the colors change according the to the period in the cycle of local rice cultivation. These rice fields, known as padi, form the core of the Balinese diet. Small, green shoots are planted directly into the muddy, firtile water, which over time, having matured and turned a golden color, may grow well over a meter in hight.
