By Dian Hasan | January 15, 2010

Calling out all Biking Adventure lovers: Destination Sulawesi, a 525 km adventure route in and around Tana Toraja (Feb 1 – 13, 2010)

Indonesia is renowned as the last eden on earth, home to the second largest rainforest biodiversity after the Amazon. Adventure awaits at every corner, replete with among the friendliest people in the world and a culture and fiery cuisine like no other.

They say the closer you get to the ground and to the people, the better to appreciate their culture. Such is the philosophy behind Cycle Sulawesi, a 13-day biking adventure tour organized by Jakarta & Sydney-based Cycle Indonesia.

Colin Freestone, Founder of Cycle Indonesia, is avid cyclist, die-hard Yoga practitioner, and old Indonesia hand, will be your guide par excellence. Mr. Freestone, who happens to be my uncle, will lead the group tour through Tana Toraja’s famed natural beauty and her unique culture. This is Cycle Indonesia‘s second year, after last year’s successful debut (see pictures below), which was a much longer trip covering Makassar to Tana Toraja (27 days, 1,200 km)

Other activities include: Daily Yoga Sessions lead by in-house guru, Mr. Freestone himself. Trekking, Rafting, Village Stays and a chance to dabble into Bahasa Indonesia.
