It's a gentle route and we'll cover approximately 30kms over three hours before spotting for lunch in Chilaw. After a break for lunch we'll leave the bikes and transfer inland to the Backwaters Lodge, our base for the next three nights. Set on the banks of the Kala Oyu River, the lodge has been created by a passionate local team to highlight the natural environment and biodiversity of the region. Rooms here are upcycled shipping containers, fitted with large windows and decks to give uninterupted views out into the forest. Comfort hasn't been ignored though, each room has an ensuite bathroom, air-con and mesh screens so you can sleep close to nature without getting bitten! The food here is sourced locally from nearby family run farms and we'll refuel on delicious traditional curries, rice and freshly made bread. For those that like a little spice there will be sambol and chutney to add as much heat as you fancy. There will be a mix of dishes with meat and seafood, alongside plenty of vegetarian dishes to sample. Depending on the size of the group we may be split between accommodation at the Backwaters Lodge and the Wild Wadi Lodge which is a short walk away.
