Jatiluwih to the Sea

Jatiluwih 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, Jatiluwih 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 :)

Review

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!
