A great way to start a morning. The first stop is a coffee plantation where our lovely guide showed us cocoa plants, a cinnamon tree and the animal that produces kopi luwak coffee. Overlooking rolling hills, you are able to sit and taste five different types of teas, coffee and cocoa for no cost. Each was delicious and there was the option of purchasing a cup of the kopi luwak.
Coffee not only makes you alert and energetic but helps improve your attention span, so you perform better on a long task. It also helps you concentrate on cycling tour than or exams by supporting reasoning and memory skills.
Enjoying your breakfast while your coffee at our coffee plantation area, taste the morning before start the downhill cycling.
The cycling is really fun, and mostly downhill apart from the occasional up hill. Riding through the villages and rice fields is a fantastic experience and a real highlight. The sights are wonderful and you would occasionally stop to take photos or take in some more information. There was a fruit stop and water was provided. Our guide will stop you at some rice paddies and you will have a short tutorial about rice growing. The rest of the ride is filled with some large hills and can be tough going. They will also stop you at a farm and showed us some prized fighting cocks and some very large cattle, it was interesting to see some real rural life.
