Man! It's like a full-on Warung Pojok happening here
There is really great riding here on Bali. The traffic can be a bit much down south, but I am riding out of our place (Ubud) and usually heading north via Kintamani for most of my riding. If you are coming in N. Hemisphere summer, the weather is usually perfect for long rides with clear skies up in the mountains. We are now getting into the start of the rainy season, so a 4-5 hour ride can mean pretty much ANYTHING weather-wise.
If you are planning for some rides here, check out these routes and profiles I've posted at tracks4bikers, http://tracks4bikers.com/tracks/index?name=&user=ocdlikeme&tags=&bounds=
The central mountains beat riding the south coast road any day of the week.
The North coast is much quieter and is a beautiful place to do point to point, multiple day rides with numerous places to stay and GREAT fresh grilled seafood to be had.
@Dita, unless you are planning on flying A LOT and can justify the cost of a hard-shell case, I would suggest packing with a box supplemented with extra reinforcement. Based on recent experiences of friends flying with soft bike bags I would say a box or hard shell case is the way to go. Whether I drive or fly to Java I usually use my S&S coupled steel road bike, which fits in a small(ish) case. Please consider leaving your carbon wheels at home though. The roads of Bali frequently have sand on them which is volcanic in origin and EXTREMELY abrasive. It doesn't take much to kill a set of $$$ rims. I can lend you a set of wheels if you bring your cassette along.
@mbdub80 feel free to come to Bali with the Superleggera and forget to take it home
THAT is a nice ride, even if it could use some lightening up. Seriously though, please feel free to PM me and I can set up some rides with me and my buddies here to show you the roads.
PS Maaf, tadi pakai Bhs Inggris, tapi mungkin ada yang lain yang bisa manfaatkan info tentang Bali.
