Just had a great day out with Moon from Bali on Bike (BOB).
This is our 2nd time with BOB and once again a highlight of our holiday.
Great to get out in the real Bali, fantastic scenery and impromptu stops along the way to experience some Balinese culture.
The day was finished off with a great lunch at Bobs house cooked by his wife.

My husband and I did this tour late December and had a fantastic time, the ride itself is extremely easy and mostly downhill so your hands will get a work out on those breaks. The sites are very green, lush and beautiful and it’s such a nice ride through all the little villages! We had Bob as our guide and he was marvellous, he has such a wonderful personality and was full of knowledge about local farming practices, traditions and religions in Bali, it was really fascinating to learn. We highly recommend this company, they are extremely professional, prompt and it was a pleasure to have toured with Bali On Bike.
This was a great day!
Bob was a great guide very knowledgeable he picked us up on time and then showed us the big ticket sights on the way up the mountain.Passing through villages, rice paddies and farms on small paths and back roads, you get to see the real Bali, It was then a gentle ride back down with only a couple of short large hills that were easy to walk :) as we were out of shape for riding up them!We finished with an amazing Balinese lunch cooked by Bob's wife in his house. They tone down the spice for us westerners as well!Would highly recommend going with Bali on Bike it was a small group as there was just 4 of us on the tour so you felt like you were getting personalised treatment all the way!!
Thanks Bob :)

Just got back from the tour and it was a great experience. Was just the two of us, plus another couple. Amazing scenary and you get to ride through a few different villages. Mostly coasting downhill but a couple of short climbs up the hill which made us feel like we earnt some lunch. The buffet lunch was fantastic, up there with the best food we've tried in Bali so far. Bob (our tour guide) was very friendly and talkative, we wish he could be our tour guide all the time.
Had another great trip with Moon as our guide. We asked to go more off road as per our first visit - bumpy roads through villages, a great way to see things that you would miss in a car. Visited Pura Gunung Kawi at our request - well worth a visit (be warned it has lots of steps). Once again, finished with a beautiful meal from Bob's wife. Magnificent. Great value for money.

We have a 8year old cycling with us and we were very concerned for his safety. Certain parts of the trip went on roads with cars. Bob was watchful and once he put my son in the van because the road was busy. He also briefed us before we went into extremely steep or rough trails. We're thankful for his vigilance. And to top the excellent cycling experience, we had a delicious buffet lunch, home cooked at his house.

Made a booking with BOB after recommendations from a friend. No regrets doing it even though I got sun burnt. The tour was scenic and Bob, the owner was really patient with me as I had difficulties cycling on uneven roads and dirt paths. He ended up conducting a personal tour with me and my partner away from the main group. We visited the second largest volcano which was breath taking and then a coffee plantation to sample the various types of coffees (mangosteen!) and finally the cycling itself before having lunch at Bob's traditional Balinese home.

Bali on bikes was a fantastic experience. We had a party of 8 including a 10yr old girl and a 3yr old boy. Bob arranged a child seat for my son, which enabled us to do this tour. Our tour guide Johnny was excellent. He was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour which just made the trip even more enjoyable. We only had to do a couple of large hills, but Johnny was always there to help me push my son up the hill and at one stage gave me his bike and he took my son. We visited the Lewak coffee plantation, some villages, a cock fighting ring and rice fields which were just stunning. We were also able to stop and take some photos along the way. To top of a great day, we finished up by having lunch at Bob's home which was prepared by Bobs very talented wife. The food was some of the best we have had in our 5 weeks here. Thank you so much Bob and Johnny for this wonderful experience, we will never forget it.
We were only in Ubud for 3 days and wanted to see so many things. We were a little nervous that this trip would take up a good part of the one full day that we were there and would miss many things, however, it turned out to be one of the best parts of our trip to Ubud!
Bob and his driver picked us up right at the time that he said (and our hotel wasn't easy to find!) and then picked up 1 other couple that was with us for the remainder of the trip. We then proceeded to the coffee plantation and got to try many excellent coffee and teas (for free!). Bob had also provided us with some food for breakfast. Walking up to the plantation Bob was very informative about all of the different plants, fruits, etc. that we were walking past.
From there we proceeded further inland to an overlook of a lake and some mountains. Bob even provided us with some excellent fruit from the market there, some of which we would not have normally tried, but it was all excellent.
