    hi, think there is no such bike rental in solo. it would be great if you can bring your own bike, and contact some rider here eg. @diablovampiro (the tawangmangu cemoro sewu keeper) or @john

    Dear Setz,

    Thank you for your response. I think I will bring my bicycle. I am looking forward to make a ride up to gunung Lawu. I have read that the highest point that can be reached on the normal road is about 1800 meter above see level. Dies anybody know how many km of climbing it is by bicycle?

    With kind regards,

    This climbing is the hors categorie climb ... but very beautiful
    Solo to Palur is flat
    Palur to Karanganyar is hilly (around 2-6% grade)
    Karanganyar to tawangmangu is mountainous (around 5-12%)
    Tawangmangu to cemorosewu is super mountainous (around 8-18% mostly, but on some area especially the Wortel Washing and Gondosuli Village, it will be 19-20% for 800-1500m long, that's the most suffering point on this climbing)

    Suggestion : Please bring a compact crank 50/34, with a super big cassete (30 or 32 if possible)

    Ary thanks for the info about the climb of gunung Lawu. Seems like a great challenge with some serious climbing. What is your experience in the Tawangmanggu area outside of the main road? I will make some changes concerning my bike. I ride a 9 speed ultegra, my lowest gear is 39x27. For the Vosges and the Black Forest that was ok, but I think gng lawu is more difficult.

    Salam dari Belanda,

    With 39x27, you will be safe until Tawangmangu ... but if you insist to reach Cemorosewu, I suggest you to take the outer road (turn right after at the junction after waterfall area, just before the hard climb of "carrot washing") ... which is longer, but the gradient will stay at 7-12% (in exchange you must ride 5km longer).

    If you want to make another route, you can go to "Ceto Temple" (but there's also 18% gradient before the temple) ... for this destination, turn left after the karanganyar market and bus station ...

    If you want another route around solo ... try to check with the Solo Group at this Forum ... in the Central Java Sub Forum ... there will be another route like Solo to Tlatar Water Park at Boyolali ... Solo to Selo Pass (the pass, right in the middle of Mount Merapi and Merbabu) ... etc

    Ary dan Diablovampiro terima kasih banyak. Saya ganti persnelling ke 39x32 yang paling kecil. (Shimano xt 9speed long cage instead of ultegra short cage). Saya semoga itu cukup untuk saya. I hope I can make at least two rides per week the time that I stay in Solo (dekat RS Brayat), Saya tinggal di Solo kira2 3 minggu.
