How to Find Adventure in Bali on Two Wheels – It has long been known that cycling is a great way to get fit and stay in shape, but riding a bike is also an excellent way to access areas that you simply can’t get to in a car. In Bali, there are a lot of those types of places, and unless you are willing to go a little off the beaten path, you are going to miss some hidden gems. The good news for those of you who believe in a little pedal power is that Mason Adventures have the ideal tour that will take you to some truly amazing spots.
Mason Adventures are the go-to company for those looking for some serious thrills while visiting Bali. We are going to talk about their Mountain Bike Tours in just a moment, but you should also be aware that you can take to the skies in a helicopter, hit the rive for a bit of white-water rafting, or tear through the jungle a little faster in a custom buggy. Those are just a few of the adventures that await when you trust Mason with your adventure fun in Bali, but for now, let’s talk about their mountain bike offerings.
While getting off-road and hitting the trails on a mountain bike may seem rather unglamorous, the reality is that Mason Adventures do all they can to ensure that your tour is both fun and comfortable. They offer air-conditioned transport to and from your hotel, allowing you to relax for a little bit before and after your ride, although we are pretty sure that it’s the after-ride where you will appreciate those comforts a little more. That’s because this ride is a long one, but that also means there is a ton of stuff to see and do along the way.
Your ride begins near the summit of the Mount Batur Volcano, where you may want to pause for a moment to take in the breathtaking views below you, including Kintamani Lake. Top of the line bikes and helmets are provided for all riders, but it is suggested that you wear closed footwear, as you will want to protect your feet on the rugged terrain. It’s all downhill from there, and we mean that in a good way. The 30 KM trail winds downhill, but you will want to pump the brakes every now and again to take in some spectacular sights.
Along the way, you will come across secluded Hindu temples, plantations, rice fields, and quiet little villages where time appears to have stood still. You will also enjoy a delicious spot of lunch with some mineral water, and you will be provided with cold towels that will help keep you cool in a climate that is sometimes very muggy. Even if you haven’t spent much time on a bike since you were a kid, we guarantee that the Mason Adventures Mountain Bike Tour will make you fell very young once again.
