Here we’ve compiled all of the popular cycling spots around the island, covered by our great selection of exciting cycling activities available in Bali. Terrain and highlights vary: from biking at a leisurely pace through jungle villages in central Bali, to riding over undulating topography of hillside neighbourhoods, all of which reward you with breathtaking vistas usually inaccessible by car.
