The rides pass through amazing scenery and local villages. In between the tracks we will shuttle with our support vehicle (45min).

There is a beautiful 11th century Hindu temple at the starting point which we will visit. The riding today is a real highlight and one of the best most variating tracks we have in Indonesia. The total distance is about 40km and is almost all on single track terrain. There are plenty of short but steep climbs in the first section of the ride and the downhill is all on fast flowing single track. After the ride we transfer back to our accommodation in Solo. (B L)

Intermediate: Tours are suitable for riders with good fitness level. Previous mountain bike experience is recommended. Trail surfaces may include uneven terrain and narrow trails, some single track, with occasional obstacles (roots, rocks, sand). Hills and descents are moderate and require some skill. Riders with minimal mountain bike experience but who have road biking skills or a strong fitness level, along with an adventurous spirit, should be suitable for an intermediate tour.
Advanced: Tours are suitable for experienced mountain bikers only with great fitness and strong bike handling skills. Riding is primarily on rough double track and single track. Sections of trail can be very challenging with frequent ascents and descents of significant length. Trail conditions can change rapidly due to weather conditions and natural elements such as vegetation.
