A Cyprus Cycling experience

Cyprus is a biker’s paradise and it’s not just because of the guaranteed sunshine.
The excellent weather conditions mean cycling can be enjoyed almost throughout the year. And, unlike other European or Mediterranean countries, strong headwinds are rare.But it is the island’s compactness that is its main attraction, offering rapid changes of terrain and scenery on even the shortest bike trails. Within the space of 10 km you can go from rocky to clay, and steep to flat, enabling you to experience all surfaces within a short period of time, and making the island into one huge mountain bike arena.

A number of bike centres are available on the island offering rental services, route information, guide assistance and support.

They can organise your journey to take you through a varied landscape combining mountain views, rugged coastlines, tranquil vineyards and olive groves and fascinating ancient ruins.

Cyprus is also the perfect place for mountain bikers and competitive riders from all over the world come to the island to hone their skills and collect points or win prize money.

The Cyprus Cycling Federation, a member of the International Cycling Union (UCI) organises a number of competitions throughout the year. The Cyprus Sunshine Cup is an international series of five Mountain Bike events held under the auspices of UCI (Union Cyclist International). The events are organised during spring every year and it covers many areas of the island. The courses of the events are designed to suit the abilities of top elite riders but also give pleasure to the fun and leisure bikers.

In addition “Podilatokinisis”, as well as the Lemesos (Limassol) Cycling Club, hold various non racing cycling activities where everyone is welcome.
