One of the activities I have been getting up to a lot in Bali these days is mountain biking. I bought a good full suspension bike around the beginning of March and have been trying to get out and do some riding quite often when I am in town. For those not too familiar with Bali, it’s actually a very mountainous sort of place with lots of hills and off road terrain. The sort of riding that we are doing is what could be described as Cross Country, no major single track downhill stuff (mostly we are too old for that) but rather some very interesting trails through the woods, rice fields, and some gnarly roads found throughout Bali. We have been riding in the areas of Bedugul, Kintamani, Ubud, Tabanan, and the small island of Serangan near Sanur. There are loads of tracks still to be ridden but we are slowly finding more and more fun rides to go on. We have a group of anywhere up to 10 people joining us on these rides which can take anywhere from about 2.5 hours to 5 or 6 hours. If you are interested in riding with us then let us know and hopefully can sort something out.
Here is a short video that shows one of the rides in Bedugul.
