An exhilarating biking adventure combining healthy exercise and total relaxation staying in the tranquil harbor town of Latchi on the unspoiled north west coast of Cyprus, close to the Akamas Peninsula. Guests may wish to bring their own bikes and can be confident that they will be transported carefully in our bespoke bike trailer where wheels do not need to be removed for transportation. They will also be securely locked away at night. The terrain in Cyprus varies from gnarly, technical single track to wide flowing forest trails and rocky mule paths. There are many challenging hills but equally as many smooth downhill tracks through the forest, giving a wide variety of trails to suit all abilities. The predominant terrain is non-technical, making Cyprus an ideal location for beginners or for those looking for relaxation as well as an energetic break.

Supplemental Tour Information:
Our adult-only trips are suitable for all levels of cycling experience and fitness. While the terrain is not overtly technical, western Cyprus has plenty of hills making for some tough climbs and exhilarating descents. There is no set itinerary in terms of ride distance or location but all rides take place on the west of the island either in the Akamas region or the Pafos forest/lower Troodos region. Distances vary from 25-50 km, dependent on the fitness and experience/requirements of the group.

Rides generally start around 9.30 AM and finish by 4.30 PM allowing time for relaxation post ride/hike. Depending on the group's abilities, rides are chosen from a wide selection covering varying terrain and allow guests to acclimatize gradually to the climate and hilly terrain in Cyprus. Lunches are either picnic style or taken at a local cafe en route, dependent on the ride location. We take pride in sharing our secrets on where the best local cafes are for a post-ride drink!

Your accommodation is at a small family run hotel in the picturesque fishing harbor of Latchi The hotel is built from traditional Cyprus stone and offers en suite bedrooms with fridge, air conditioning, TV, telephone and freshly laundered sheets and towels. Here you can relax and enjoy the views over the harbor to the Akamas Peninsula beyond. We guarantee a true personal service and unique trails that you will not find on your own. The style of our holiday is totally relaxed and we include 1 rest day to allow time to unwind or try another activity. Our group sizes are small with a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 8 riders although we can cater for larger groups by special arrangement.
