Rural Mountain Loop Biking Course

 

For guests looking to have more of a rugged, off-road adventure, we have great loop options from our lodge.

 

Option #1: Short Loop

The course starts off with a nice down-hill coast on our newly paved roads, passing by local villages. After only a few minutes, you will be turning onto the back-roads for the off-roading experience. Following a small hill, the course gradually leads you back up the mountain by way of a dirt trail. On the way, we pass by a few scenic rice paddies as well as lots of fruit trees and other local crops.

There are a few homes along the way, some even with house temples. The appeal of this route lies in the intimate setting where you are going down local trails and seeing everyday life for the Balinese in this wonderful rural area. Say hi to the locals, they are very friendly!

After the fun trail section, the course connects to the main road for a short and smooth uphill ride back to the lodge.

Option 2: Long Loop

Where the 1st tour heads back up to the main road, this option continues back down the mountain on a fast-paced, downhill adventure. Get ready for a few climbs up the hills, as well. Pass by some large rice paddies for great pictures and even some open areas with good views of the surrounding landscape, including Mount Batukaru.

Once back on the main road, there a few warungs that you will pass to have a snack and catch a breather if you need. Then, we start our short climb back to the lodge. The last stretch is downhill - we coast back to the lodge and feel a great sense of accomplishment for our adventure!
