“I liked the scenic easy trail program a lot because I wanted to see Bali like you usually don't get to see it. The guide assured me that it was ok for me with very little bike riding experience, and he was right. There's nothing extreme about this tour, as the off road parts are easy and the focus is really on having a good time in the ricefields and villages of Bali.”
Mountain biking skills
The shuttle up to the scenic easy trails and ricefield village rides takes about one hour (from Canggu). From the starting point the trails wind gently downhill on single tracks, concrete lanes, dirt roads, and sometimes also asphalt roads with very little traffic through traditional Balinese villages. There are very few moderate uphill sections, and even fewer climbs. You'll have Balinese lunch on the way. The shuttle van is always near by, so in case any participant is tired, he or she can jump in the van and do the next stage in air-condition with a cold drink. If ready for more, hop out at the next meeting with the group, or stay in the van for another stage, or even all the way until the end of the ride, which if the group is fit enough will be at the beach. Great ride to see the real Bali.
