Half Day Margarana Loop
For this half day ride we head into the lower plains of the beautiful Tabanan region. Located only one hour driving from the busy South of Bali this area is yet to be affected by modernisation and mass tourism. It is particularly noted for the beautiful old temples, charming villages and amazing hilly country side.
We have designed a great 28km loop starting at the village of Marga from where we cycle to the Margarana War Memorial where we will have a break and visit the site. This seldom visit but important memorial was erected the remember the 1946 battle between the Balinese forces and the Dutch colonial troops. The Balinese fighters refused to surrender and all 94 were killed.
The riding is all on small back roads and trails through beautiful local villages and inside the rice paddy fields and amazing country side. There are many - short - uphill sections in the first part of the ride so the riding is a good challenge as well :)
Our half day rides start with a 07.30am pick up which should bring you back at your accommodation around 12.30pm or we have afternoon departures as well from 1pm to 6pm.
