- Day 5
- Today's ride starts high up on the slopes of Mt. Agung and descends with spectacular views along the south coast on a clear day. We weave our way through plantations and stone carving villages until we reach Muncan where we'll transfer to Ubud.

Guides - Lovely people - could not have been more helpful.
Best quality bikes I've had on a Spice Roads tour - looked virtually brand new
Some technical sections were too challenging for us so we got off and pushed - not a problem as we expected this to be the case and the others were happy to wait a few minutes more for us to arrive

Wonderful views, great landscape - I stopped a few times along the way to take photos (mostly to catch my breathe though!!!!). It was fun and challenging.
