Ubud coffee ride

Level: easy

Type: recovery

This is an easy ride for 36 km going north, from Mas/Tegenungan to Andong.  The route is mostly flat with one steep hill (10% gradient), passing paddy fields and a possibility for bird watching.

 

We simply fancy having a good coffee and breakfast after a pleasant ride. This route allows us to have breakfast in an award winning barista coffee house, Gangga coffee where you can enjoy the favourite house blend of Bandung and Bali coffee and Sagoon (baked coconut shreds) made by the owner's beloved grandpa from Peliatan District.

Cultural ride

Level: easy medium

Type: sweet spot

For those who are interested in cultural monuments, this is the right route for you. In this 40 km easy medium route, we will pass through three regencies and visit a little miniature of Indonesia called Taman Nusa  (separate entry fee is required). After a break in Taman Nusa, we will bring you to Taman Bali toward Bangli and Gianyar Culture hall.

Historical ride

Level: medium

Type: tempo

This longer ride will bring us to the historical period of Indonesia where the first president chose Tampak siring as a place to build his residential palace in Bali. The route is mostly flat with one big steep hill with 9-10% gradient or through the main road (sakah and mas district) for a fast course with a steady 1-2% gradient for 11km, passing Goa Lawah, until we reach the presidential palace.

This route also allows us to enjoy the famous terasering paddy field in Ubud and take some great pictures and a small nibble. On the way back to Balitri via main road (mas district), we can stop at a coffee place in Ubud (optional).

Pod Chocolate® factory ride

Level: medium

Type: tempo

This ride will bring you to see how the sweet and tender Bali chocolate is made. Later you can have a hot/cold dark chocolate drink and pao de chocolate as a reward of your hard work on the saddle.

 

The start is a 16 km warming up a steady uphill with 1-2% elevation via pantai purnama until we reach Cocomart Tebongkang for grouping with local cyclists. We will ride around 14km head to west north to Bongkasa until we reach pod chocolate in Mengwi where you can see how the chocolate is processed from beans to a nice cold/warm chocolate drink, ready to serve in front of you.

 

For those who want to burn some calories from eating too much chocolate, you can take another 6 km rolling climb further north to Petang where there is a serious climb of 15% gradient for 500-600 meter in between.

Unesco Heritage ride

Level: easy medium

Type: sweet spot

We bring you the World Unesco Heritage to enjoy the outstanding landscapes that can fill entire memory cards with stunning snaps. This route also allows you to immerse in a village river where the water is as clear as a mirror.

The road to Mengwi is a steady climb for about 37 km. We continue with some rolling terrain for another 10km until we reach Jatiluwih, where we stop at the riverside and dip into very fresh water and enjoy the impressive view of Tabanan paddy fields, one of the Unesco heritage sites in Bali.

On the way back, we will stop for a hot chocolate drink at Pod Chocolate Cafè in Mengwi.

Eco ride

Level: hard

Type: power endurance

There are many routes to reach Kintamani, one of the highest altitude lake views in Bali, depending on your mood to climb.

The nice steady climb route to Kintamani can be via Tampak Siring main road (steady 1-2% climb) or back road (rolling). We can have a few stops at 20 km and 40 km to regroup. We will also spend some time in Kintamani coffee eco bike café where you can indulge yourself in their famous sandwich, rice bowl, pancakes to dig in with coffee. The way back can be rough sometimes, so we will try to find the smoothest road we can find.
