A great cycling tour! (the real local experience)
Have you seen the must-sees on Java? Now it is time to experience the real Javanese life away from the tourist spots.
We are more than happy to welcome you in the countryside close to our beautiful city of Jogjakarta, famous for its hospitality.
Are you ready for a new experience?
You will ride on small backstreet roads where you feel the magic of the Javanese village life and learn about the daily life with numerous stops on the way.
What is the plan?
✔ On our mountain bike we go around the village and fields. We use the small back roads which are safe to cycle. Away from the crazy chaos on the main roads. We will get moving and feel the wind in our hair.
✔ On our way we will be surprised how many products we normally find in the shop have their origin in trees, plants and nature.
✔ The people we meet are more than happy to show us around and let us taste the fresh fruit which grows in their back yard or on the side of the road.
Do you know the names of the fruit?
✔ When passing the roads in Indonesia you always see people busy with their activities and small businesses. Everybody contributes and works together to provide for their families. Learn more about how the home industry is organised in the villages.
✔ Ask everything you like to know about village life. People welcome you in their homes and if you like you can join in.
✔ Try snacks and drinks which are local favorites. You will learn how the local snacks are made. Witness the people, culture and society and explore the fantastic tastes, sounds and smells that Yogyakarta has to offer.
✔ And most important: we share our stories. A great way to spend time together and enjoy life.
A great experience; 3 hours full of Javanese hospitality.
Move, snack and smile like a local !
