Bali Cross Country
- 3 Days
- Active Tours
This trip is designed for those who like to push a bit and ride the extra distance. We will cover 160km in three riding days (80% will be off road) on some of the best single track that Bali has got to offer.
You will ride through the rice fields of Jatiluwih (Unesco World Heritage), through the beautiful, remote and authentic Tabanan province, around the crater of Mount Batur and do a 30km downhill all the way from Mount Batur to Ubud and we will ride from the flanks of Mount Abang all the way down to the South East Coast. If you love to mountain bike and don’t mind to push a little then this 3 day mountain bike adventure is for you.
We start with an early transfer from your hotel to the region of Bedugul at 1400m. The views from here over Lake Beratan - one of the most famous lakes in Bali - are simply breathtaking. First stop before the ride is the Water Temple on the Lake Beratan. One of Bali's most iconic temples. After being blessed for a safe journey ahead we will transfer to the starting point. Let the adventure begin! Through an amazing maze of trails we make our way down back towards the coast. Every aspect of mountain biking is covered on this ride. A 45km adrenaline rush with some of Bali's best single track. Please come with a healthy dose of adventure for this one cause you will need it! The ride ends up right at our accommodation, a beautiful resort in the middle of the countryside and rice paddy fields.
An early transfer will bring us to Mount Batur, our playground for the morning. We will ride around the actual crater of the volcano on a wide mixture of terrain with amazing views of Mount Batur, Lake Batur and Mount Abang. You may expect some of Bali's best single track riding! We end up riding through the lava stream where the latest eruption of Mount Batur happened in 2000. After our lunch break we will transfer you back up to the rim and cycle mostly downhill for 35km on a wide mixture of terrain all the way down to Ubud where our adventure for the day ends around 4pm. We overnight in Ubud, the cultural capital of Bali. (B L)
Our last day finishing the track. You will face an epic off road mountain biking adventure. Another morning transfer to the rim of the volcano of Mount Abang. From here we will start riding, bit more technical today, but nothing serious and lots of fun. Today we ride through bamboo forest, dry creek beds, jungle forest and rice paddies - everything you can imagine! Today is a real highlight. The tour finishes near the town of Tangkup around 3pm. From here we can transfer you back to your accommodation in Ubud or you can spend the night in the South of Bali. **END OF TOUR – END OF SERVICE**
Tours are suitable for experienced mountain bikers only with great fitness and strong bike handling skills. Riding is primarily on rough doubletrack and single track. Sections of trail can be very challenging with frequent ascents and descents of significant length. Trail conditions can change rapidly due to weather conditions and natural elements such as vegetation. Please make sure you are not choosing a tour that is too difficult for your skill level. This is your vacation, not army camp! Expect to ride about 4-5 hours per day, covering an average of 45km. Send us an email or call our office if you have questions.
We cycle on a very wide mixture of terrain on anything from single track, jeep tracks, sandy roads, broken tarmac roads and many more. You should have good bike skills to be able to navigate the varying terrain. You should wear comfortable shoes appropriate for cycling for this ride.
