Cycle South Sulawesi

Join me, Colin Freestone, on the second Indonesian Sulawesi Tour, August 2009.
Sulawesi’s that spidery shaped island east of Borneo, north of Bali.
The island hosts the Wallace Line which divides Asian and Australian vegetation.

After 40 years of family, work and recreational travel all over the archipelago I’ve concluded that Sulawesi is the best place for cycling in Indonesia.
I want to share, through cycling, my experience, love and knowledge of Indonesia.


Trip includes:
·      Makassar (capital of the historic spice trade)
·      Malino Highlands (tea plantations, waterfalls, rustic mountain villages)
·      Tana Beru (home of Indonesia’s wooden sail boat building industry)
