A cycling route that takes you to locations where mythology was born and history was recorded. This is an idea that becomes reality through the “Aphrodite and Apollo Gran Fondo”, a Cycling for All race taking place this October on the island of Cyprus. This is a race that suits all fitness levels, from beginners to pros!
Pafos, the land where the Goddess of beauty and love was born and Limassol, the area where Apollo Hylates was worshipped as a god of woodlands, are hosting for the second time the cycling Gran Fondo “The paths of Apollo and Aphrodite”
Cyprus is known for its mythological ties to the ancient gods, hence the existence of hundreds of archaeological sites and other monuments that are linked to the gods of Olympus, especially Aphrodite and Apollo who were worshipped greatly on the Island. The routes of this one-of-a-kind Gran Fondo take place in areas of great beauty, archaeological importance and authenticity of our beautiful island.
The selected route portrays the beauty of the island as well as the 10,000 years of history, civilization and culture of Cyprus and its people.
The Kourion amphitheatre and the Sanctuary of Apollo Hylates are some of the highlights of the routes that you will be racing in October in Cyprus.
