If you are an avid road cyclist or mountain biker, you will be able to see Cyprus from a different perspective that only bikers have the pleasure of seeing. There are bike trails all over Cyprus.
Cyprus is well known for its magnificent weather with almost year round sunshine. You can ride your bike throughout the year, but take into consideration that it gets very hot in the summer months and it is best to ride early in the morning or late afternoon. Professional mountain bikers flock to the island for their training regime in winter and spring. The route you choose will depend on how fit you are and how rigorous a route you want to take. You can expect to find pine forest trails, smooth dirt roads or if you prefer something more laid back, coastal roads. It doesn’t matter which route you choose, you will be in awe at the amazing scenery. Most of these roads, apart from the coastal roads in summer, are deserted with barely any traffic which will make it a pleasant and safe bike trip.
