My wife and i were considering many cycling companies before deciding to use bob and how glad we did. What makes bob different from others is that they give personal touch in what they do. Every rider got a chance to talk to the guide.
We booked 3 days prior our trip was promptly responded by bob.
We cycled with another nice couple and guided by moon (not sure if spelled correctly). Moon is one nice, chatty chap. Has extensive knowledge about bali customs and traditions. He is always smiling and ready with his jokes.
At first we were afraid our day would be ruined because it rained heavily that morning. Thankfully, after coffee plantation visit wher we tasted some amazing coffee and bought cheap organic luwak coffee, rain stopped.
Our cycling were 95% downhill. It was a fun andbumpy ride until we reached the next village with smooth asphalt covered roads where the ride becomes much faster and windy.
Some places we went: traditional bali house where we interacted with a villagers family, primary school where we interacted with school kids and learned about their way of life, Sukarno ( first indonesia president) palace, etc
As we passed through the roads there will be many many village kids ready with their smiles and high fives. What a friendly country!!
To top it all up, at the end of the ride, we got to enjoy buffet spread made by bob's wife. Amazing food!! The satay is wonderful (i ate 10 of them!!). I could just pay for the food! Moreover, u can get beer or soft drink of your choice. And we learn about bali culture the most from moon in 26 years within a day.It did not get any better than this.
Thank you bob and moon for unforgettable experience. We would be back.
