Duration : 4-5 Hrs
About 6.30 am our staff will meet you at your stay in the hotel in area Banyuwangi then countinue to drive to the Licin village.
A short drive after breakfast and we’re off on our mountain bikes through the heartland of Banyuwangi, travelling downhill on non tourist, secret back roads and minor village roads (with little traffic), experiencing typical Banyuwangi daily life and enjoying the beautiful Banyuwangi countryside to Licin. We ride through lush forested areas, plantations full of Banyuwangi staples and cash crops (cloves, coffee, cocoa, vanilla, local vegetables and exotic tropical fruits), through timeless small villages and lush rice paddy panoramas. And throngs of adorable Banyuwangi children will be there calling out ‘hellos’ and wanting ‘high fives’ on the way down.
We have numerous stops on the way, including a visit to a Banyuwangi home, (where you get to see first hand how the Banyuwangi live outside the tourist areas), a Banyuwangi plantation (where you learn of the medicinal and culturally important uses of local plants, see many of the spices you have used in cooking and tropical fruits growing in their natural environment. We also get to sample many exotic tropical fruits. We also stop off stunning rice paddy panoramas. We go for a short walk in the rice paddies to see villagers planting and harvesting rice (you can join in) and see traditional craftsmen at work en route.
We are the only tour that offers optional extra flat and uphill riding towards the end of the tour, for those wanting a cycling workout or for our more athletic guests.
Package includes : guide, bicycle, mineral water, lunch, souvenirs for local children.
