With few parks, crazy traffic, pollution, heat,
humidity & often no beaches for miles,
SPORT in Asia can be a challenge!
Originating in Vietnam in 2009,
These are my stories of cycling, running, MTB, swimming,
AFL, cricket, cross-fit, football, vertical running, sailing,
rock climbing, adventure racing, playing street chess
& many more sports in S.E Asia - including Cambodia, Philippines, Malaysia & Sarawak, China, Singapore, Vietnam, Brunei, Borneo, Bali...

Biking Bali... (A good excuse to get off the beach)
A great way to see some of the island of Bali, see and sample the local coffee [on site], turn the legs over and in our case stumble across a once in 5 year burial ceremony, is to get on one of the many bike tours which all drive you up to the Kintimani crater edge and guide you on bikes back down to Ubud. A distance of about 30km.
Its a great day out and the ride is suitable for anyone between 8 to 80 years old.
Bali Go Bike are one of many operators who will accommodate you. So I say.."get off the beach and give it a go!"
7 types of coffee including the Luwak ' (digested) bean
A burial ceremony at one of the many temples we passed
