The main income of the Balinese is traditionally agriculture. Bananas, coconuts, mangoes and ... rice! Rice is staple food in Asia and synonymous with the food itself. In Bali, rice is grown almost everywhere, but the best known are the rice terraces in the southwest of the island, which have even been included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites and which can be experienced fabulous by bike.After the start in Bedugul you will find yourself on a beautiful, technical, but rather relaxed trail, which has a lot to offer in particular landscape: Huge grasses alternate with banana trees and gigantic bamboo, again and again the view of the surrounding valleys released - easy to enjoy. Then you are finally here. A picturesque bridge takes you to the middle of the rice terraces, which are connected with each other by narrow clay paths that are easily passable by bike.The fields are completely irrigated, so it is really pleasant here despite the heat. Of course, a lunch next to a rice field should not be missed. There is rice, baby. Hopefully fresh from the field. Enjoy the view again, take a few photos and let yourself roll to Tale.It continues, right through a piece of original Bali. Maybe you'll meet a few local women with baskets on their heads wondering what they're doing or some kids hoping for a few coins from the stranger and greeting you with the words "Money, money!"Slowly it gets busier. You approach the coast and thus the villages, roads and traffic. Here is something really careful - Cycling just for fun is something that is completely foreign to the locals here. Expect at best no consideration of others and behave as defensively as possible. And look forward to the goal of this tour, Echo Beach. Find a nice spot in the sand, order a fresh coconut (you'll be surprised how good "real" coconuts taste!) And end the day with one of the most beautiful sunsets you've ever experienced.
