We had just come down from 3 days in the mountains of Taiwan and hit the nearest beach and it's dead flat, like walk out and not even get your knees wet flat. We laughed it off and spend the day riding down the coast and then camping on the beach. The surf is still a weak 1ft and we keep on cycling the next day. Its overcast and a little breezy, the road winds into the mountains as they fall directly into the ocean, we go through a few tunnels and then a few 200m climbs.

We woke with anticipation of the first day of riding. Its always an exciting day, we have travelled so far with our boards and bikes and now we get to put them to good use. We had assembled the bikes in our hotel room about level 8 and then wheeled the bikes vertically into the elevator and onto the street.

The day had finally arrived, our departure for another incredible adventure overseas. I have found that over the years and numerous long-distance rides, my preparation process has become more streamlined. I know my equipment and what works and doesn’t. I check the weather forecast to pack appropriate clothing and see which sleeping bag is necessary. Having not ridden with Dylan for almost 2 years, this new adventure to Taiwan would be a great opportunity to get back into a riding pattern with a good mate.

The bay at scar reef is one of the most beautiful I have seen, you can easily compare it to some places in the Mentawai, clean water, huge reef pass and breath taking headlands on each side. I book into the Jelenga bungalows for 3 nights, $15 per night, I have just missed the massive swell the day before as I was at yoyos.

After 3 nights at desert point I reluctantly hit the road at 6:30am, needing to leave early to beat the midday heat. I packed the bike while a few of the professional surfers slept on the deck of the bungalows. Out the small village of Bangko Bangko and up the hill, its fairly quiet and about 26 degrees, the perfect temperature for riding.

I jump on the public ferry from Gili T to Bangsal the closest port on the main land, it’s a 1hr boat ride in some turbulent waters from strong currents and high wind, even at 7.30am in the morning. It a mission to get the bike and gear on to a very full ferry, but some kind passangers helped me in the narrow boat and but the bike between there knees.

Arriving at Kermas beach I found the homestay I had searched on Tripadvisor.com the Nirwala Homestay. The homestay is set amongst beautiful rice paddies and has a few bungalows with small fish ponds. They are still building a few more rooms while I was there.

Landing late at night at the Denpasar airport which is actually closer to Kuta, sees me greeted by Arie, a local transport driver who friended us last time traveling to Bali. He is all smiles as he askes what’s in the large oversize box. I told him what I plan to do which surprises him.
