THE VOLCANO TRAIL - XC / TRAIL
If you enjoy fast and flowing single and double track and amazing scenery then this ride is for you. We start with an early transfer from your hotel to the higher regions of the island, the volcanic core of the island. The first section is mostly downhill as we start at 1,600m above sea level and ride back all the way back down to the lower grounds. The second part of the ride is more XC orientated. The scenery will simply take your breath away. We will ride through some of the most beautiful parts of the island. This ride is not the most technical ride but lots of fun for sure!

We are not going to sugar coat it for this one, this trip might be challenging for some. Having previous off road experience is a must. We don't do anything crazy such as must take drops, jumps or extreme downhill stuff but it's a sweet and fun pure trail ride. It's hanging on the back off the back of the bike most of the time :)
If you are looking for more technical riding then our 'Secret Single Track' and 'Bali Downhill' rides might be a better fit though.

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.

"Volcano Trail was the best day I have had on a bike. Fast, loose, challenging, stunning scenery, beautiful villages, lovely people and awesome fun - and that was just the first 10km ! Rode on 20th Jan with 3 others and Rudi on well maintained high spec bikes for a total of 33km, 262m climbing and the amazing 1330m descending. No jumps or silly stuff but you will spend a lot of time hanging off the back of the bike, drifting through volcanic soils or grabbing a big handful of brakes at the last minute - 4/5 rating is about right and this is a ride which will test a good XC rider. My only regret is I did not have time on this holiday to book another ride. The Volcano Trail is a must do for any MTB fan when in Bali."
