Cycling in Cyprus

Set your sights on Cyprus. You’ll be in the right place for great year-round sunshine, various routes that span roads, towns and mountains, and staggering historic treasures. Make the most of soaking up all the island’s dramatic scenery as you pedal from east to west.

A cyclist’s paradise

Feeling daring? The trickier uphill terrain of Cyprus means the island is primed for all levels of cyclist. You’ll find routes that span rocky areas which then unravel into clay, then other parts that intersect with streams, forests and really rural parts.

The scenic route

Journey from the flat eastern coast around Larnaca to the mountainous north nearer Paphos. The Troodos Mountains are pretty epic if you’re looking to test your mettle. After a more leisurely pace? Hire a bike in Limassol and trace the seafront on public pathways.

Off the saddle

In spring, you can also pitch up to see the renowned The Sunshine Cup and The Volkswagen Tour events in action. But save time to check out vineyards and cultural landmarks, then fuel up on divine local meze platters.
