GFNY Bali will offer you the chance to experience one of the most famous and beautiful islands in the world on your bike. The beachside host town, Sanur, is Bali’s oldest upscale resort area. Offering a quieter way of life to its neighboring towns, it boasts lush tropical gardens flowing onto stunning white sand beaches and has an abundance of shopping, fantastic restaurants and accommodation options for every budget. The warmth of the Indonesian people will make GFNY riders and their families feel very welcome.
Riders will start out along a coastal road. The competitive long route covers 142km and 2100m of climbing, including a 1350m ascent to the crater rim of the Batur Volcano. The non-competitive medium route is 82km and 950m of climbing. For the long route riders, once you reach the top of the volcano with sweeping views of the 13km-long Batur Lake, there is a 40km descent to the bottom and the finish line. Riders of both routes are treated to an authentic Indonesian cycling experience along rice paddies, tropical jungle, temples and dozens of small villages with cheering spectators.
Denpasar’s International Airport / Ngurah Rai International Airport (Code: DPS) has direct flights from Asian, Australian and Middle Eastern cities. From other destinations, a connecting flight is necessary. Sanur is a 30-minute drive from the airport.
