Bali Bike Ride


When in Bali I rarely do anything more active than walk from Kuta to Seminyak popping in and out of various shops but this time under the influence of my sister we went on a mountain bike ride up in the hills. We started at the volcano and rode for miles, mostly downhill at breakneck speed to Ubud. Our guide Wayan told us many things about the offerings and Hindu ceremonies we passed along the way. We rode through villages each with their own specialty production going on.  It was a great way to see a part of Bali that you miss if you just visit the resorts on the beach.

We certainly deserved our sunset drink which we made with local limes and our duty free liquor. Our version of Long Island tea is equal parts of gin, white rum, vodka, a half measure of Cointreau and half measure of Malibu , lime juice to taste and a splash of coke with heaps of ice. It has truly medicinal properties!
