Cycling in Jatiluwih

Unesco heritage rice paddies

The gorgeous UNESCO heritage rice paddies of Jatiluwih is one of my favourite places in Bali for the sheer beauty of the place.

It's about an hour and a half north west of Ubud, and a couple of hours from Canggu.

You can do some lovely and easy hikes through the rice fields, following the new markers which clearly show the various options by distance.

I recently did a bike tour with my sister which sounded like a good idea at the time. If you are super fit (or Dutch) you will love this amazing tour with the lovely Wayan from Easy Bali Cycling. With loads of scooter experience, I breezed down the quite steep hills. I thought I was pretty fit but I mostly had to push my bike back up again!

My sister cycles around the Gold Coast hinterland so she was fine on the uphill but nervous on the gravelly path going down. Next time I'll try the eBike tour! Easy Bikes gave us breakfast and carried our water, and the little warung we met at would be great for lunch. Don't forget sunscreen and a cover for your shoulders - the sun starts to bite from 10am.

Touring with Bali Easy Bikes (that's Agung in the distance on the right).
