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 views of the ocean on one side and the volcanoes 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.

Minimum 2 people to confirm a new departure. If you are a solo rider please check with us for our latest schedule of confirmed day rides. Of course we welcome solo riders and we always have plenty of rides confirmed every week. Actually more than 50% of our bookings come from solo riders! It just works a lot more efficient to get little groups together instead of going out for only one person. The busy parts of Bali are already congested enough with pollution from cars and traffic jams and we want to do our share in keeping our beautiful island more enjoyable. We thank you for your support and understanding.
Blue with some sections red.
Intermediate with a few advanced sections in the beginning:
Intermediate: Tours are suitable for riders with good fitness level. 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 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. Send us an email or call our office if you have questions.

Had a really fun ride on the 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!
