Cycling through Bali is one of the most authentic and fun ways of exploring Bali. Beyond Bali’s famed beaches are the rural back roads that connect stunning scenery with volcanoes and rice plantations, many villages that are not on the touristy radar and a chance for travelers to meet the locals and understand their culture. Best of all, the short cycling distances on this tour and the fact that it is a guided trip makes it easy for anyone without long cycling experience to get on it. The tour is based on one hotel, which means no daily packing and unpacking. A great choice for a first timer on a cycling tour or a discerning traveler looking for new experiences in Bali.
