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.

On arrival and departure days we have short, 30-50km spins just to get the legs moving. On the other days we split into two groups, a cafe group averaging 21-24km/h and a club group averaging 25-28km/h. The itinerary for the club group is:

Mon – Kathikas Loop (104km, 2200m)
Tues – Hills, Valleys, Vines (115km, 1900m)
Weds – Olympus Queen Stage (160km, 3400m)

The coffee group will be doing slightly shorter versions of these routes.

Itinerary

Cyprus Cycling Itinerary

Our 7 day / 6 night trips run every week from Feb to Apr. Our basic itinerary is the same every week mixing classic climbs with lesser known local routes - all led by our expert team.

Itinerary

Day One Sunday

Paphos

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 30km 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 30 km.
Elevation Gain 350 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 104 km.
Elevation Gain 2200 m.

Day Three Tuesday

Hills, Valley & Vines

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.

Day Four Wednesday

Queen Stage: Mount 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.
