I awoke to the birds singing. It was a good sleep. Did my wake up sun salutations and went to breakfast. Mariella was awake and was to join me before the pickup. It started to rain while we were eating. It rained during yoga yesterday and fairly quickly stopped.
They were running a little behind and it gave the rain a chance to stop. Anna the Indonesian wife of the owner Ivan of Sanur Cycle Tours scooped me up and away to where we get bicycles and it would also be the start and stop of the ride. Both of them could not have been nicer.
I was with 3 British ex-pats and a young Russian woman. Everyone was also very nice and it felt that I was a little more a local. We were led by Dwi, the main guide. She was incredible. She does not own a car or scooter and only rides a bicycle everywhere. When you see my road pictures that is the woman I am following. Thank god. None of us could not have done the ride if had not been for her. She looked for us a million times today.
We went a bit more and before we knew it we were going through the rice fields. It was like this off road single track made of dirt, mud, broken concrete and grass. It could be quite technical. I am just going to lay a few pics out.
We were having to come back into town at a much busier time. So it could be like this.
