Despite confirming the night before we were promptly picked up from our hotel in ubud by bobs colleague. We drove a little and bob joined us. He is a very friendly guy and knowledgeable about bali. We stopped at a spice plantation and were given a pancake breakfast along with 15 types of tea and coffee to try. The staff here were very friendly. We drove to a view point for the volcano and lake which was great for pictures. Bob bought the group some fruits to eat... yumny.
We arrived for the cycle and it was very well coordinated. My fiancee has not been on a bike for 20 years and bobs collegue helped her through the journey and took pictires for us. We went through several villages and stopped for quick explanations about the culture which was fantastic. The safety aspect was great .... helemts and traffic control were organised by the team. Bob took us to his lovely temple esque home and we had great home made food. Not spicy and very tasty. Stunning views great service. Bob has an amazing team and this is worth while doing. Good price and home by 2.45 awesome! The ride was 90% downhill, 2 steep uphill sections that none of us made lol. But we walked a couple of minutes to get to the top.
Ps the New Zealand airline crew that we meet rocked!
