Day 1 – Munggu to Tanah Lot via Tabanan region

On Day 1 of our Bali cycling adventure we woke up early to a pink and blue sunrise, then had a traditional Indonesian breakfast before pumping our tires and rolling out onto the quiet roads.

From the front door of our villa, we rode straight down toward the coast through stunning rice fields, before taking in the villages of Tabanan.

In Tabanan, we cycled through the preparations for a big festival, then rode through a small and colourful market before going to Tanah Lot.

At Tanah Lot huge waves pounded the temple and cliffs, providing us with stunning views and sounds of the ocean sprinkled with rhythmic chanting and bells from a ceremony at the temple.

After leaving Tanah Lot we stopped for coffee at Canteen café, home to the best coffee in Canggu, before riding to Echo Beach to have a look at the surf.

We cycled home for a swim and sun bathe before lunch, then ventured into Seminyak for a massage, cocktails, and sunset dinner at Jimbaran Bay. With just over 60 kilometres in the legs, we were all acclimatised and had the hang of Bali traffic before the bigger days in the saddle.
