CyclingUbud tourist destinations so who wants to retreat from the hustle of Kuta beach. But, the way I was enjoying not only Ubud on foot. Travelers can bike from Kintamani, passing through the beautiful countryside.

My hair stand in the middle of the wind Kintamani in Bangli regency, Bali. Lake Batur is clear from the above here, near Mount Batur caldera gaping. But this time, I would not be visited or caldera lakes are included in the Global Geopark Network ( GGP ) that UNESCO.

Agenda as much fun already waiting: cycling from Kintamani to Ubud. No, not through the car line up and down the field that it is endless. I would cross the street derived predominantly rural, 25 Km, for 3 hours trip.

" We will pass through the village streets. Worry, if there is a hill, we use a mountain bike. 'll Be taught how to shift gears bike yes, " said Leader of the organizers of the Tour Cycling Tour Kintamani - Ubud.

There were several participants that day, the majority of foreign tourists. However, current regulations, different group means are different again his Tour Leader. Although participants were alone like me now, Tour Leader was only 1 person to maintain exclusivity. Travel was immediately picked up by car at the hotel where to stay, morning at around 07.00 pm.

But before start bike, it's time to fill the stomach with breakfast. Meals begin with side dishes of rice, fried noodles, fried bananas presented to Madu Sari restaurant, Kintamani. I also devoured a few pieces of fried banana and a cup of coffee in Bali.

Car drove into the village Padpadan, the starting - point cycling tour Kintamani Ubud. Each participant was loaned mountain bike. In addition to teaching how to change gear bikes, helmets and loaned Participants also were given a bottle of mineral water on the road for supplies.

The trip began. Approximately 6 km first, but damaged roads decreased and full of gravel. Travelers should be extra careful this road, no need to race. Once the damaged roads impassable, vast stretches of paddy panorama. Mountain air fill your lungs.

" In the future we will turn left, climb quite steep. Get ready for a tooth, " said Tour Leader .

Need adjustment for the traveler who rarely use a mountain bike, me for example. Although it had fallen, I finally found the right gear for the climb. The first stop is Jagaraga temple, the most sacred in the village Jagaraga.

" This temple is 130 years old. Seen it of moss in front of the gate? Temple is still a place of prayer, But we can not enter, at the gate alone , " said Tour Leader.

Still crossing the village road, the journey continues to Gianyar. Apparently I followed Cycling Tour at the right time, one day before Nyepi. I found a lot of ogoh - ogoh, huge statue representation of the spirit. Shape and color vary, although all ugly face.

" Gianyar famous by the shrewdness of hand artist. Could be seen from the ogoh - ogoh they make, " said Tour Leader.

The journey continues across settlements and paddy with beautiful temples in his side. According to the Tour Leader, every village has at least 3 temples. Each to worship Lord Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva.

It's been 2 hours I Fixie bike. Before arriving at the finish point Sanding village, Ubud, Tour Leader asked me to stop by at one of the Balinese people. The house is located in the village of Cagan, Gianyar. While looking at the components of Balinese traditional house that has 5 buildings, the owner of the house brought me a young coconut. Fresh!

Before reaching the finish point, I passed one of the presidential palace Tampaksiring. Although only get a peek of the front gate, I could see the pine trees lined like beautiful European summer.

3 hours had not felt my bike Fixie. At the finish point, given cold towels to refresh the body. I then drove the car to the restaurant for lunch Saren Indah. There is a salad & soup as an appetizer, Balinese mixed rice for the main course, as well as fried bananas and fresh fruit for dessert.

Tired and satisfied, I was escorted back to the inn. Total, Cycling Tour is held from 07:00 to 15:00 CET. Price per person Rp 350,000 ( domestic ) and Rp 450,000 ( foreign ). Comparable with the experience gained, see inland Bali more intimate and close!
