Batur Crater to Ubud
This is the longest 1 day ride that we have. 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 on a wide mixture of terrain with amazing views of Mount Batur, Lake Batur and Mount Abang. You may expect some of Bali's best single track riding with views of the ocean on one side and the volcano 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 lava stream where the latest eruption happened, a truly amazing experience. This is where the first 25km of the ride finishes.
We will then transfer up to rim of the caldera again where we will have our lunch break overlooking Mount Batur. For part two of the ride we will mountain bike for another 35km on a wide mixture of terrain all the way down to Ubud where our mountain bike adventure for the day ends. As this day ride is almost 63km you will need to have a good level of fitness in order to fully appreciate and enjoy this day.

REVIEW ABOUT THIS TRIP
Had a really fun ride on 2016 June 21, Batur crater to Ubud. Wonderful trails, scenery and guidance from the Infinity team. Loved riding though the lava fields in particular. A big thank you to Mr Harry for indulging our bravado to tackle the climb back out of the crater. Sure, it was 'only 3km' but he was correct about the gradient - a very tough climb, it helps to be a little bit crazy! (Before I scare too many customers away, most people are sensible and hop in the van - no shame in that!)
This was my 3rd Infinity day ride, definitely the best!
