JATILUWIH TO THE SEA - XC
Jatihluwih that roughly translates as 'amazing beauty' is the starting point of our trip. You will transfer by our private car to the foot of mount Batukaru (2,270m) at 950m above sea level. After a quick bike fitting and safety briefing you will start riding through what is without a doubt some of the most stunning scenery on the entire island. Amazingly crafted rice paddies, arranged in a series of terraces to follow the natural contours of the landscape, Jatihluwih was recently listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO for its preservation of traditional Balinese farming techniques.
You will cycle mostly downhill from 1,000m above sea level - be aware of many rolling hills in the first section of the ride - all the way to the coastal town of Canggu, a charming village blessed with a rural landscape of rice terraces and a stretch of coastline with its legendary surf break. If you ride a bike regularly and have a reasonable level of general fitness, then this ride is for you. The distance is approximately 50km all on small roads and back tracks mixed with beautiful single track in between the rice paddy fields. This was our first trip we designed and this is still one of the best bike rides you can do in Bali :)

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.

Trail surfaces may include uneven terrain and narrow trails, some singletrack, 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.

Cross Country mountain biking. We cycle about 30km or 45km on back roads, narrow concrete paths, beautiful single track and some sections of dirt tracks. You should have reasonable bike skills to be able to navigate the varying terrain and narrow tracks. You should wear comfortable shoes appropriate for cycling for this ride.

We can shorten this ride into a 30km ride and end near Tabanan, you still get to experience most of the highlights of this ride but in a shorter version. Both can be done in the same ride, some riders can stop at the 30km point and hop in the support vehicle while others continue to ride to Canggu.

"I have done the Jatiluwih to the Sea trip twice now and absolutely loved it both times. The ride is challenging, but not too difficult. The scenery is out of this world, and you get to see parts of Bali that most people don't ever get to see. The company is first class, providing great guides, yummy local snacks, and good support all around. I highly recommend this company and this trip!"
