This mountain bike tour is designed to showcase the best all mountain bike trails around Mount Lawu in Solo and Mount Merapi in Yogyakarta. We will mountain bike for 3 days and the adventure will never stop. The riding is quite challenging with technical uphills, fast downhills and everything else in between.

Day 01 | Central Java | Yogyakarta | Local Bike Park and All Mountain Ride on the flanks of Mount Merapi | 30km
After you arrive at the airport of Yogyakarta in Central Java our team will transfer you by car (1,5 hours) to the local bike park. If you fly in this morning we recommend to arrive the latest at 08.00am so that you are able to do all the planned activities. If you are already in Yogyakarta we will come and pick you up around 07.30am. We will first visit the local bike park where they have build 2 amazing fast and flowing single tracks of about 2,5km. There are no must jumps, drops or gaps. After spending the morning here we will ride an amazing 15km all mountain track with plenty of single track and natural features. The ride pass through amazing scenery and local villages. For those that can still hold on to the bars we can shuttle up and ride it all again :). After the second track we transfer by car (1 hour) back to Yogyakarta where we spend the night. (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.
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.
We ride on everything from sandy trails, single track, jeep track, dirt roads, farm trails, small paved roads and more. Please note that there will be some uphill as well. Due to the nature of the trails our support vehicle can't ride with us all the time.

OUR COVID-19 RESPONSE
We hope everyone is staying as healthy as possible in the current global pandemic situation.
Infinity is scheduled to reopen around 2020 December. We realize the beginning will be very slow but we are eager to get things started again. We do have decided considering the current situation that until further notice we will run all of our short breaks and longer tour bookings as private departures. So each booking will have their own private guide, driver, and minivan (min 2 pax). Our crews will also take a COVID rapid test one or two days before the start of each tour.
Of course, we understand the uncertainty of the situation and therefore we are offering all of our guests that book on a multiple-day tour with us in 2020 and 2021 the option to reschedule to a later date if needed and a two-year future travel credit for the entire amount of any deposit or full payments that have been made to us. Please note that the cancelation and rescheduling must come in fourteen days before the departure date of your tour.
Despite the difficulties ahead, one day this will eventually be over, and we hope all of you will be coming back, sooner or later. When this happens, we are ready for you!
We wish everyone the best during these uncertain times.
Stay safe and kind regards,
Team Infinity Mountainbiking
