Cycling is one of the best ways to discover the real part of the island’s life and beauty. For travelers who seek to go deep into Bali's Countryside and witness first hand the daily life of rural rice farmers and craftsmen. One of a nice and quit easy safe cycling you can do starting from Ubud Village. We can cycle through Penestanan Village which is known as the home for the local artists where there are numbers of artisans .
You will be amazed on how hard these people work gathering the sand from the bottom of the river and carrying it up to the street. Continuing our cycling up through the village of Bongkasa, you will be offered such a real scene of Balinese village with its traditional family compounds line up on both side of the village’s road, well built house gates of bricks and sandstones, elaborate family temple and a spectacular view over green rice paddies as well the view of the mountain range over central and north eastern Bali.
By the time, We arrive at Banjar Kambang, make a right turn and cycle through the Banjar Sayan and to Pura Ayun where there is a nice village temple that’s built next to a huge Banyan tree. It is an ancient banyan tree which probably thousands of year old growing on the outer courtyard of the temple. The trees are really huge and almost conquering quit a big area around the temple with its fabulous roots hanging down from the branches. We can easily spend half an hour hanging around the area and would be such a great spot for resting after our cycling.
