Ride Notes

Start your 2020 as you mean to go on at our Cyprus Training Camp. Led by the coaching experts at Rowe & King, this week or riding mixes sunny early season miles with coaching tips and skill sessions to set you up for a great year on the bike.
What makes Cyprus such a great location for this camp? It has one of the warmest climates in Europe with temperatures in the low 20s from Feb and 325 sunny days per year. There is an amazing mountain range headlined by Mount Olympus at nearly 2,000m. The road surfaces are good with hardly any traffic. Add in some light, tasty food with some great local cafes by the beach and in the mountains & a great 4* hotel to call home and you have a superb week of riding.

Real Rider Reviews

Maggy, Etape du Tour, 2019: "Sportive Breaks is my favourite cycling tour company. It always delivered beyond expectations. Hassle free trip. Customer service is superb. You always find someone to help you, guide you or set up your bike. Love this company. This is my second trip with them and have already booked my third "

Ride Highlights

  • Sunshine riding by the med.

    Our routes alternate between longer days in the foothills / mountains and easier days rolling by the med. Early season riding doesn't get much better.

  • Early season climbing in the Trodos Mountains

    Our corner of Cyprus is right by the Troodos Mountains where all roads lead to the mighty Mount Olympus. From sea level to almost 2,000m, our queen stage is early season epic.

  • Smooth surfaces and empty roads.

    The roads in Cyprus are similar to Mallorca but with even less traffic. Expect some quick chaingangs and thrilling descents.

Cyprus Training Camp Cycling Itinerary

Our 7 day / 6 night training camp runs from March 1st to 7th. We have two speed groups each day and the lead coach may alter the route to suit the group. We try to alternate easier and harder rides with one queen stage.

Itinerary

Day One Sunday

Paphos to Ltymbou

Arrival day. After a short transfer to the hotel and some time to check in, our mechanics are on hand to fit you to your rental bike or help build your bike. We have a short 55km spin to make sure legs and bikes are working before longer rides ahead. At 7.30pm we have a welcome dinner to go over the week.

Ride Distance 57.6 km.
Elevation Gain 1259 m.

Day Two Monday

Kathikas Loop

We roll out at 9.30am and head up the coast on pan flat roads for 20km. We then head inland into the hills for three shorter climbs before a descent back to the coast. We should be back early afternoon for some relaxation time before dinner.

Ride Distance 103.4 km.
Elevation Gain 2252 m.

Day Three Tuesday

Aphrodita's rock

Another 9.30am roll out for an easy day with one longer climb in the middle. We head south along the coast before heading inland for a 10km, 5% climb and then a long, quick descent home.

Ride Distance 115.5 km.
Elevation Gain 1940 m.

Day Four Wednesday

Paphos Forest

One last big ride. The route goes into the forest in rolling hills. Over 136km there is very little flat as we go over four hills and some quick descents.

Ride Distance 136.3 km.
Elevation Gain 3109 m.

Day Five Thursday

Winery Loop

An easier day in rolling hills. We head out at 10am to allow for a lazy morning after the queen stage. The ride aims for a winery where we have lunch and then get back for mid afternoon.

Ride Distance 82.1 km.
Elevation Gain 1742 m.

Day Six Friday

Olympus

The big one. We have a couple of options depending on how hard you want to push it. The full route is 160km to Mt Olympus and back with a long climb from sea level to nearly 2,000m with a great cafe stop. The descent down is thrilling and any pain in the climb will be long forgotten.

Ride Distance 160.4 km.
Elevation Gain 3653 m.
