It’s all about two wheels in Bali, and this action-packed cycling trip takes in some of the island’s best spots in the highlands and on the coast. Hit the road in Ubud and wind your way south, into a world of lush green rice fields, smouldering volcanoes, family-run warungs, community projects, caves, temples and tiny villages. With the chilled-out beaches of Lovina and Sanur on the horizon, and a slew of adventure activities on offer throughout – such as a hike up Mt Batur – this is an unforgettable journey for cyclists and adventurers alike.

Why you'll love this trip
  • Escape the tourist hordes and cycle through the island's heart, from the green hills of Ubud to the laidback beach towns of Lovina and Sanur.
  • Cycling’s not the only activity on offer. Take the chance to hike up Mt Batur, visit hidden caves, soak in hot springs, and enjoy some watersports on the coast
  • As well as beautiful temples, visit less-known villages such as Trunyan, whose astounding burial tradition makes use of a mysterious ‘magic tree’
  • Feast on the most authentic Balinese cuisine, prepared lovingly by unsung kitchen masters such as Lovina’s Bu Wayan
  • Relax and unwind on the unique black sand beaches of Lovina, the perfect place to rest your bones after a few days on the bike
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll directly support our Intrepid Foundation partner, World Bicycle Relief. Donations provide school kids, health workers, and farmers in far-out areas with bicycles that provide access to education, healthcare, and income.

Is this trip right for you?
  • To complete this trip it is important that you are both confident and competent in riding a bicycle.
  • On this trip we have a single leader that rides with the group, and another that drives the support vehicle (acting as a back marker where needed). Where the vehicle cannot travel directly with the cyclists (e.g. a cyclists-only path) your leader will assign a person from the group to act as a back marker.
  • This trip is designed for those who love to get active. While prior training may not be necessary, a moderate level of fitness will help you get the most out of the activities on this trip.
  • The optional hike to the Mt Batur crater is demanding and can vary a great deal depending on the weather. Be sure to bring strong, sturdy walking shoes. Rest assured that all camping gear will be carried by porters.

Accompanied by enthusiastic local guides, cycling across the island was a great way to explore different parts of Bali. Be prepared for hills; they come at you on day #1 and can be tough in the heat, particularly early on before you know your bike well. Great experience, though. I loved pulling up for our "pit stops" to find a table set with fresh mangos, watermelon, mangosteen, bananas, etc. Wish I could end every workout that way!

Excellent trip with an excellent guide and support team. Be warned parts of the cycling are very hard and require significant mountain biking experience, the trip should definitely be 4/5 physical rating.

Cycle Bali was a most memorable and amazing trip! On the bike we got to see so much more of Bali and visit so many little non tourist places. However do be warned you MUST be prepared for this trip - mountain biking and cycling experience is a must and a high level of fitness is required as this trip is most challenging mentally and physically.

An incredible way to see so many different sides to Bali. Lots of variety both on the bike plus location of accommodation. It is definitely not flat however, be ready to tackle a hill or two.
