on the islands Bali, Java, Lombok, Sumbawa & Flores.
I, Werner Duderstadt, have always been active in doing winter sports (Downhill, Freestyle and Snowboarding). I've discovered the bike sport 14 years ago and have also participated in some "Glocknerkönige", which is a big yearly bike event in the month of June, riding up the "Großglockner-Alpenpass" in Austria by bike. As a former trader of Sports equipment and Bikes, I am perfectly trained to repair bikes and I always keep my tools in the bus just in case….
In the year 2003 we established a small team of specialists and tourguides who work together very close to insure that all who participate in our Adventure Tours will be safe and will experience a high level professionality. We now offer bike and hike tours on the islands Sumbawa, Rinca, Komodo, Kalimantan and we are very succesful. And there are still lots and lots of other wonderful tours to be planned on these Indonesian islands.
I had the idea to establish "Cocostravel" when I participated in an extremely long downhill tour from a huge volcano on the Java island. I was enjoying a second bike holiday on the Bali and Java islands but at that time this idea still was only a dream. The following year 2002 I took two longer stays in order to search for and to take notes of the perfect biking tours. I was supported by Heriyanto and his friends on Java, by Wayan of the "Bali Cycle Federation" and Aan, who was responsible for the organizational things on Bali. The results were 6 different tours, grades easy to mid-difficult, waiting to be discovered by you.
