Leaving Yogya, we’ll ride towards East Java province, a wild rolling region of towering peaks, smoking volcanoes and unspoilt panoramas. After the temple-ringed and Dutch colonial hilltop city of Malang, we’ll pause in Bromo Tengger Semeru Park, home to the Gunung Semeru volcano, Indonesia’s highest peak. Then it’s across the Ijen plateau, another beautiful and forested volcanic region, to Ketapang and a quick ferry ride across the Bali Strait to Gilimanuk. From there we cycle along Bali’s northwest shoreline to Lovina, before heading inland and completing this section in Ubud, the center of Bali’s unique version of Hindu culture.
