Why UpShift Tours?
A guilt free indulgent holiday
UpShift is a unique, cultural touring holiday that tests the body, invigorates the mind and nourishes the soul…
Tests the body:
Take an opportunity to leave the stress of office life behind, without having to leave your love of cycling in the boarding lounge.
This is a nine day cycling tour with four days of riding, one rest day, and four more days of riding. Riding days will be mixed scenery and challenges, from 110-200 km equating to approximate 2-4 hours in duration
Enjoy the challenge of riding your bike through new landscapes in the morning, while relaxing and being truly on holiday in the afternoon. You will get to experience all the joys of being a fully supported, professional cyclist, without all the stress that goes with it.
Ride with a group of like-minded people who support each other to push limits on new and challenging rides that take in all corners of Bali and pass through local villages and towns you won’t find on Trip Advisor, while still challenging for those all-important Strava segments.
Each course will be led by our Super Domestique Aussie Ride Guide. There to keep you encouraged, give you tips and sing you songs when your muscles are complaining. As well as the guide, rides are fully supported with a lead moto to alert other road users to our presence, make sure the road ahead is safe from washouts and alert you to sudden moving objects – like cows. A trail vehicle will also be on hand with sticky bidons, snacks and, if you want to stop for the day, a rack for your bike and a seat for your bum. Should you require it, feel, free to use spare wheels and equipment should you run through a jagged pot hole.
Invigorates the mind
Daily (optional but free) activities include:
Silver making class. Skilled silversmiths will help you choose a piece of jewellery to make, and assist you through each step of the creative process. You will go home with a unique experience and memento of your trip as well as a new skill.
Cooking class: Learn the art of Balinese cooking from professional chefs as they pass on techniques passed down through generations.
Yoga: Our guide will step you through some basic yoga moves that are sure to loosen up both your aching muscles and tired mind, while giving you the competitive edge when you return home
Massage class: Life is about giving. Learn how to give the perfect Balinese massage give the special people in your life a personal gift
Other activities include viewing a traditional kecak dance, beach dinner at sunset and more.
Nourishes the soul:
Experience the true culture and environment of Bali. We will immerse you in some of the well known cultural locations such as Tanah Lot, Tegallalang Rice Terraces, Ubud Monkey Forest, Tirta Empul, and go on a sunrise hike to Mt Batur. But what we can list, and you can’t get from Trip Advisor will be the stunning natural surrounds of your daily rides. A breeze through a rice field or the glint of early sun on the ocean and not a parking meter in sight, or perhaps a balmy night with clear skies, delicious food and the soft glow of fireflies.
We are going to show you the traditional Bali, the Bali steeped in traditions and customs and family values, where community is key.
Absorb the sounds, the sights, the smells and allow your senses to awaken to a new and uplifting experience.
Why guilt free?
You are exercising, eating well, de-stressing and building a community platform to assist young people in choosing a productive, satisfying career through cycling workshops.
