Awesome cycling through rice paddies and visit to coffee plantation. Guides give good explanations about everything. Lunch at the house of the guide was excellent. Great value for money.

I think just about all bike ride companies will give you a great day. One of the best things to do In Bali. Bali on bike (Bob) had friendly funny informed guys with very good English. The bikes were reasonable. Mt Batur view point not the best. I recommend a trip like this one that ends in the family compound, it really does add a lot to the day, so interesting. The lunch at the compound was great, heaps of healthy delicious Balinese home cooking. Finally this tour is noticeably cheaper than most.

So I recently got home from my trip to Bali (Indonesia), where I was for my 21st birthday, so I figured I’d write a post detailing my journey!

Day 3: We were picked up at 7 in the morning to go on the Bali on Bike experience. We started at a coffee plantation where we where shown how the coffee was made, especially the Kopi Luwak, or Civet Coffee.
We then sat down to try 10 sample coffee’s and teas. The Ginseng Coffee being particular good. We had to pay extra to try the Catpoochino, but we did, having been on my Bucketlist. We also had pancakes with coconut in them for lunch.
We where then driven to Kintamani Volcano all the while being told about numerous things by our guide ‘Moon’.
He explained to us about how the Hindu’s sacrifice a Cow into the Volcano for the Gods, and how across the crater lake they bury bodies at the base of a particular tree but leave the heads unburied, where they rot.. so the sun still shines upon them, and that the smell of the tree sap is so strong it blocks the rotting smell at least two meters away. But that taking a boat over there is quiet dangerous as the person will get your money first, and then demand the rest midway or chuck you off the boat in the middle of the lake. We then went on a 4 hour ride from Kintamani to Ubud in the centre of Bali, through the jungles and all the run down villages. It was truly something different.
At The Temple
At one point we stopped to try Durian, or ‘Stinky Fruit’ I certainly can’t say I was a fan. It tasted to me like those strong cheeses, whilst Mum thought it tasted like pickled onion! We then finished at Bob’s house with a huge authentic Balinese feast cooked by his wife. We sat around eating and drinking talking to Bob and Moon and the only two people to come on the tour with us, an American couple. We were then driven home, which was one of the most painful things I’ve ever experienced as I needed to pee incredibly bad.

Bali on BikeCoasting on a bike down the Bali hills, sun on my face, wind gently blowing my hair, through rice fields and small villages all the way to Bob’s place for a mouth watering Balinese meal.

There were 6 of us in our group and we were picked up promptly for an early morning drive to Ubud. Once there, Bob was the ultimate guide and offered to take my elderly Mum on the tandem bike with him for the first part which was a lovely gesture and well appreciated. Once past the uneven road bit (about 2 kms), she hoped onto her own bike and rode the rest of the way with the gentle encouragement of the staff. Both Bob and his support staff were fantastic and the lunch at his house at the end - Wow! For the rest of our stay in Bali I tried to get a repeat order of tempeh which his wife made but nothing ever came close to her recipe! The lunch was superb and location was beautiful. Well done Bob on such a good experience.

I know there are many other operators offering the same type of trip but the lunch at the end was better than almost all other meals we had while in Bali :)

We booked the tour because someone recommended it to us and it was totally worth it. Mostly down hill and just 2 or 3 small parts where it's going really steep up hill - you can push the bike up easily! The food was awesome, thanks to the wife and Bob himself, had an awesome day.

They pick you up at your hotel and first there's a stop where you have an amazing view over rice teraces. Then the driver takes you to a coffee plantation and gives a lot of information about the nature and all the different types of plants growing in Bali. You try different kinds of tea and coffee and there's a nice breakfast (rice rolls (like pancakes) filled with shredded coconut. You can get a cup of the famous Kopi Luwak for 50'000 RP (around 4 dollars). It's not that special though ;)
After the plantation you drive up for a short stop with a wonderful view of a vulcano and a lake next to it - stunning.
After that you get the bikes and drive for 2-3 hours. Very nice villages, temples, forests.. Then you get a AWESOME lunch at Bob's house with an introduction to the balinese homes.
Totally recommend this tour.

Wonderful experience with Bali on Bike. Bob looked after the small group all the way. Stunning views and easy downhill glide most of the way. Seeing rural Bali was great and meeting school kids along the way. At the end of the ride Bob took us to a relatives traditional Indonesian home for a wonderful lunch - thank you so much for an insightful and love look at Bali. Picked up from Hotel 1 hr away by one of their drivers in a van. No seatbelts for the back seats of the van, which is the only downside.
