    The 27.5 "16", 18 "and 20" size mountain bikes have Shimano Deore features, 20-speed Shimano disc brakes, an SR Suntour XCR suspension fork and an aluminum frame.
    If you do not want to ride without your own usual saddle (without seatpost) and possibly your own usual clipless pedals, we ask you to bring them with you and have them assembled by the tour guides to the rental bike.

    We kindly ask you to treat the bike provided to you carefully during the journey and to ensure that it is always safely parked and protected from falling over (especially in salt water). Also, keep in mind that you will be charged for any damage you have caused and will not be covered by the rental fee included in the travel price.

    Attention: As the bikes are without luggage carriers and as it is important to drink enough on the bike tours, we recommend taking a hydration pack with you. Bottle cages for drinking bottles are attached to the frame.

    In general, we recommend to consult your family doctor or even better a tropical medicine and to make missing vaccinations in time.
    Please keep in mind that in order to be effective, some vaccinations need to be repeated several times. A special vaccination on your trip is not required, but it is advisable.
    Therefore, we recommend that you also take the usual vaccinations in Germany against tetanus and diphtheria, which can be administered as a combination vaccine perform or possibly fresh. A refresher is required every 10 years. A single vaccine dose is sufficient, even if the last vaccination was more than 10 years ago. In addition, we recommend that you consult your family doctor about a hepatitis A tetanus and typhoid vaccine. At risk groups, we recommend that you also inform yourself about the following vaccinations: Hepatitis B, cholera, rabies.


    Bali is just 8 ° south of the equator. Therefore, it has a tropical climate. This means that the daytime temperatures are around 30 ° C for most of the year and only a little cool down to 22 ° - 26 ° C at night. Per 100 meters of altitude you can expect about 1 ° C lower temperature.
    The seasons are defined in Indonesia almost exclusively on the amount of rainfall and not on the temperature. Here, the expression of the respective season is regionally quite different. Climate is characterized by the rainy winter monsoon (also West Monsoon) from north to west and the summer monsoon (also East Monsoon) from the southeast of Australia ago, which brings occasionally longer periods of drought, especially the eastern islands of Indonesia. Regionally, however, the Indonesian climate is very complex and varied. So the basic features described here can not be more than an indication of what to expect. In any case, especially during the rainy season (December to March) again and again with occasional short rains can be expected, since the humidity is very high and even a slight cooling can ensure that the air can no longer absorb the water. However, these showers usually make the blue sky as fast as they used to cover it up again. During the dry season rain is very rare.
