Guidebook to Circumnavigating Bali by Bicycle
Bali, Indonesia, 'Island of Gods' is renowned for its striking and diverse natural beauty encompassing volcanic peaks, pristine tropical beaches, steeply terraced rice fields, dense forests and lush gardens. Imagine cycling through that land! Glide past verdant green rice fields beside the sparkling Bali Sea. Grind slowly up wide field-filled volcanic slopes. Peer into massive volcanic craters and race down steep winding ridge lines.
Bali is equally famed for its unique Hindu culture and exceptional arts: elaborate temples and ceremonies, stone sculptures, wood carvings, intricate paintings, rich fabrics, unique architecture, bold gamelan music and dramatic costumed dance performances. While touring the island, stumble upon hundreds of Balinese dressed in ceremonial clothing as they march through the streets en route to a temple ceremony. Gaze upon dozens of elaborately carved stone statues roadside and observe local farmers plowing rich fields with water buffalo.
Cycling Bali will guide you on a complete circumnavigation of the island. The circuit is divided into 15 manageable routes ranging in distance from 25-75 km and varying in difficulty from easy to challenging. You may choose to cycle each segment as one day's ride or combine 2-3 routes in one day, depending on your time frame, fitness level, preferred travel pace and interests.
Investigate Bali's stunning scenery and unique culture at your own pace, independent of public transportation and guided tours. Visit remote corners inaccessible to most tourists. Experience the 'real ' Bali away from its over-developed southern tourist trappings.
Cycling Bali will also teach you important essentials for visiting Bali, road and traffic conditions, what to take cycle-touring, how to take your bicycle on flights, and how to stay healthy in the tropics.
If you've ever dreamed of cycling through a tropical paradise, Cycling Bali is for you!
