It is a pretty ride and, with the exception of one rough patch on the east coast of the island, most of the riding is on fairly well sealed roads.
Non-beach highlights include a very pretty temple under two massive trees at the northern end of Jungut Batu village, the yellow suspension bridge across to Nusa Ceningan, and the view across the Ceningan Strait, especially at low tide when the seaweed work is underway.
Beach highlights include Sandy Beach, Dream Beach, the Devil's Tear, Mushroom Beach and Tamarind Beach, with each of these reached by bumpy roads off to the west of Lembongan village.
We recommend riding in a clockwise direction as that takes you to the mangroves first (better time for birds and light) and it also means you get to roll down the big hill into Jungut Batu village rather than push your bike up it.
Pushbikes can be hired at a few shops in Jungut Batu and some hotels may supply them for free. If this is all too much pedalling, you can do the same trip by motorbike.
