Our villa has two mountain bikes. You can use these for free. Around the busy city of Yogyakarta are beautiful flat cycling routes. The people will watch and wave at you on the way, because you are a kind of attraction for the locals. Feel free to stop for a chat, it is appreciated. Between the agricultural land and the rice fields outside the city are the so-called kampungs. These are small villages where you can buy a cool drink in the shops. No matter how busy it may be on the roads, the cycle paths are relatively quiet.  The nature is varied in character and who knows you might meet a couple of oxen working on the land. The beautiful temple Burubudur, at the foot of the Merapi mountain, can be reached by bike from Yogjakarta.
