Batur Crater Rim & Besakih Bike Park
For this day ride we have combined three of our favorite sections of trails in one action packed day ride!
An early transfer will bring us to Mount Batur, our playground for the morning. We will ride around on the rim of the caldera of the volcano of Mount Batur on a wide mixture of terrain with amazing views of Mount Batur, Lake Batur, Mount Abang and Mount Agung. You may expect some of Bali's best single track riding with - weather permitting - views of the ocean on one side and the central volcanoes and the lake on the other! Please be aware of the tall grass and the tight single track through the woods. After a steep decent on a broken up tarmac road we end up inside the caldera where we ride towards the lake. We will end up mountain biking through the black lava stream where the latest eruption happened, a truly amazing and spectacular experience. This is where the first 25km and part 1 of the ride finishes.
We will then transfer with our support vehicle to the top of the caldera and to the foot of Mount Abang to get ready for the next section of the ride. An amazing 12km downhill run all on fast flowing double and single track through the woods. The total section takes about 30 to 40 minutes to complete and will for sure leave a big grin on your face.
For the final session of the day we visit the Besakih Trail Center which is only a 20 minute car transfer away. We first have lunch at the park and then it's time to play! The park has 3 different trails ranging between 2,5 and 2,8km in length. The trails are very well maintained and the surroundings are simply breathtaking. There is a fast and flowing track with berms and another one with jumps and drops (there is a way around the jumps should you not wish to take them on). Runs down take about 5 minutes and ones down our support vehicle will not be far off for easy transfers back to the top. Around 3pm we return back to the South or Ubud after a truly epic day out on the mountain bikes!
Charming, knowledgeable local mountain bike guide, mountain bike hire, helmet, gloves, knee protection for the park, lunch, local snacks and fruit, drinking water and isotonic drinks, pick up and drop off from your hotel (Seminyak, Kuta, Nusa Dua, Canggu, Sanur, Legian and Ubud area's).
Advanced: Tours are suitable for experienced mountain bikers only with great fitness and strong bike handling skills. Riding is primarily on rough doubletrack and single track. Sections of trail can be challenging with frequent ascents and descents of significant length. Trail conditions can change rapidly due to weather conditions and natural elements. Please make sure you are not choosing a tour that is too difficult for your skill level. This is your vacation, not army camp! Expect to ride about 4-5 hours per day, covering an average of 45km.
