Day Ride from the Northen coast of Java to the Southen coast

I currently live in Semarang the capital city in central java right by the coast in Marina Beach. This short report is about my ride to the southen coast of Java on Parangtritis beach. It started in the afternoon and ended in sunrise. It took about a total of 4 hours going the long way down because the usual route would take only 3 hours. The route taken is marina beach - semarang - ungaran - salatiga - boyolali - klaten - jogja - Parangtritis beach

In semarang it is very hot, especially on the beach. Semarang is a port city and many activities of docking cargo from large ships and industries.

After one hours ride from the beach we reach Ungaran is it a industrial area and there are many factories around here. It is bad to ride arount here because full of trucks and containers even busses and motorbikes all together and very congested.

Ariving in salatiga has better views of central java rice paddies, mountains dan trees.

In Boyolali city is quite the same until klaten. Klaten is a low lying area and pretty flat it is just south of mount merapi.

I stop and have a rest after 3 gours of riding at a mosque that was damaged in the 200/ earthquake that hit central java dan killied about 6000 people.

After a rest driect headed to the beach and it was getting dark I hope that we can see the sunset at the beach

That's for now.

Statistiks 6 liters of fuel and 5 hours of riding

a truck trailer crashed

The ride back there was a crash of truck trailer blocking the road so had to wait until completed removing the body of the truck and trailer. It shows that you must be careful on the roads of java when there are many trucks buses and vehicles.

the crash was on the boarders of semarang and temangung right on the slope of the hill side before the rubber plantation.

Just cautions for riding in central java

another day trip from semarang to jogja

This is yet another trip from semarang to yogyakarta this time passing through the bandungan ambarawa temanggung then magelang.

It started from the afternoon in semarang and witnessing sunset in bandungan area. Then heading to magelang already dark.

The places of interest are a Buddhist temple in semarang and some hinddu temples as well in bandungan

Going through bandgungan is quite cool since it is on the slope of mount ungaran.

Oke hope you enjoy the pictures of the ride back to yogyakarta from semarang

Cheers
