Ride Notes

What makes Cyprus such an up and coming cycling destination? One of the warmest climates in Europe with temperatures in the low 20s from Feb and 325 sunny days per year. An amazing mountain range headlined by Mount Olympus at nearly 2,000m. Brilliant road surfaces with hardly any traffic. Light, tasty food with some great local cafes by the beach and in the mountains. Come and discover Cyprus for yourself and fall in love with a new spring training destination.

Real Rider Reviews

Rob, Etape du Tour, 2019: "very well organised, great mechanic service. The food stop was well organised, maybe the individual bags should be left in the shade but otherwise it was a great stop, lots of food, oranges and cola very important! Training spin was well organised. Hotel was a good selection and very comfortable. Plenty of information was provided. Míle buíochas "

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.

  • Sunny evenings in Paphos

    Afternoons are yours to relax in the sun and enjoy being on the coast. Our hotel is packed with features from a spa to indoor lane pool and is a short walk to the beach.

  • 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.
