At M16441 we want to show you some of the best mountain biking and walking in Cyprus. We offer center-based guided biking and walking holidays, tailored for all abilities.

Trips include all guiding plus support (or guiding via a GPS on self-guided holidays), wonderful en suite accommodation in tranquil locations, airport transfers, healthy breakfasts and lunches.

If you don't want to join us for a week long holiday, but are coming to Cyprus anyway, we provide daily mountain bike guiding for groups or individuals. Alternatively, If you just want to do it yourself, you can hire one of our quality mountain bikes. The choice is yours; the riding is unforgettable. If you are not a biker but you just want to walk in Cyprus, we can cater for that too.

Mountain bike and walking holidays: It is not necessary to "rough it" just because you are on a mountain biking holiday. With us you will get superb riding and beautiful accommodation. We organize our trips based on cycling experience and fitness. Our excellent value for money holidays cost from GBP £575 excluding flights; guided trips are at set times according to our planned schedule, although for groups of 6 or more, bespoke dates can be arranged. Self-guided trips can be taken at any time of the year, subject to hotel availability.

We are now in our 10th year in Cyprus.

Mountain bike guiding: The island of Cyprus is criss-crossed with tracks and trails ideally suited to mountain biking and varying in difficulty from free-flowing forest trails to gnarly single track. These tracks are not always easy to find and very few are signed. The use of a guide will enable you to experience the best of these trails.

NEW - SELF GUIDED cycling holidays. Using high quality local hotel accommodation (including 2 nights in a luxury spa resort), discover Cyprus by bike at your own pace using a GPS, pre-loaded with all the routes, for easy route finding.

NEW - Yoga and cycling/hiking holidays. With a choice of two accommodation options, enjoy the perfect wellness holiday, combining relaxed cycling with daily yoga classes to rejuvenate both mind and body.

Mountain bike hire: If you want to experience the superb riding that Cyprus has to offer then you need a quality mountain bike. We have a selection of Trek and Orange branded mountain bikes available for hire, all lovingly cared for and maintained to the highest standard. If you are staying in the Polis area then our service includes free delivery to your villa, hotel or apartment.

Our business has been operating since January 2005 and was formed after several years planning our "escape" from the stresses of the rat race. Having spent the previous 8 years doing as many outdoor activity adventure holidays as possible, we felt we could do it better and offer a unique accommodation base for mountain bikers commonly used to "slumming" it in dormitory style accommodation at the end of a long ride.

Our mission is to proide a unique personalized service to all our cycling and hiking clients and show them the best of what Cyprus has to offer to outdoor enthusuiasts.

Bespoke shorter or longer trips including multi-activity trips can be arranged for groups on request.

M16441 is jointly owned and founded by husband and wife team Helen and Alistair Smeaton. Helen was previously New Business Development Director at the highly successful UK fashion chain New Look Retailers and spent almost 20 years in the fast paced world of retail buying and merchandising before quitting to follow her passion and dream of running her own fitness-orientated business. Alistair is a former banker and chartered surveyor in the agricultural sector who met Helen in 1998 and discovered that they shared the same dream.

6. What is the best compliment you received from a client?
