|Mt Agung. A perfect looking volcano. The climb was steady on excellent quality roads|
With crazy traffic, air pollution, limited open spaces or parks, heat, humidity & often no beaches for miles, SPORT in S.E Asia can be a challenge! Posting since 2009, these are my stories of cycling, running, swimming, football, cricket, cross-fit, rock climbing, adventure racing, street chess & many more sports in S.E Asia; including Vietnam, Cambodia, Philippines, Malaysia & Sarawak, China, Singapore, Japan, Borneo, Bali..and a few adventures from Australia.

Bali by bike - Day 3
End of Day 1, I stayed in a cheap but tidy little place in Candi Dasar called 'Ari Guest house'. After meeting the owner and a couple of his regular guests at the bar they asked about my trip. I mentioned Day 2 involved riding to Lovina Beach. One regular tourist to Bali commented - "I don't care who you are - you wont make it to Lovina in a day. No way!". I must admit, there was some doubt in my mind also, but as usual, I had planned well and studied the maps and I believed it was within reach. The ride involved the first 3 hours climbing over the side Mt Agung, then a long decent to the coast at Tulumben followed by a long, straight, flat run into Lovina. After setting off from Candi Dasar at 7am, I arrived at Lovina by 2pm. Job done. Highlight of the day - proving the bar fly wrong...and the incredible descent to the coast off Mt Agung to the coast.
