Away from the beaches and Mediterranean shoreline, Cyprus is a delightful landscape of wildflower meadows, rolling vineyards and pine-clad mountains. It has all the ingredients for a perfect cycling holiday – a consistently warm climate, quiet roads and a mouth-watering cuisine heavily influenced by Greek, Turkish and Middle Eastern food cultures. Along with quiet roads and sublime scenery you will find wonderful hospitable and people who will make sure you have a memorable stay.

Arrive in Cyprus We recommend a morning flight as the journey time is over 5 hours. After arriving you will be met and transferred to our accommodation, Cyprus Villages, on the island for your stay. You will have time to build your bike (or pick up your hire bike) and grab some lunch. In the afternoon there is time to test the legs on some of the local lanes. If there is time in the day, you can explore the surrounding area the town of Kalavasos.
Challenge yourself on the Stavrovouni climb the varied riding in Cyprus is extremely noticeable the first day you go out on the bike. From the arid scenery of the coastal towns, with roads lined with orange and lemon groves your first days riding will take you into the interior lusher forested section. We have an abundance of route options to make the day as long and hard or as short and sweet as you would like. The ride will finish near the foot of the Stavrovouni climb to the Monastery that sits atop the hillside. The choice is yours, to take on this 7 km over 10% climb is not for the faint of heart, but the reward is magnificent. Plus, the monks will fill your water bottles up for the effort. Teida dominates Tenerife. It is the third highest volcano in the world and still currently active.
The Troodos Mountains Today you will ride to the centre of the island and the highest point in Cyprus. The spectacular ride to Mount Olympus which tops out at 1952 metres in total enables those who can conquer it the opportunity to see the best long-distance view in Cyprus. This ride to Mount Olympus can be shortened with either a transfer in the morning or a pick-up after a day’s riding (please contact the office for more information).
Departure day There is time for one final cafe run around the lanes before we transfer you back to the airport. We recommend you get a late afternoon or evening flight. If you want to extend this trip, this is possible.
