Lemesos 2 – Ancient Amathous – Governor’s Beach Cycling Route

This excursion is for mountain bike fanatics who will appreciate the technical difficulties involved. Although there are few level changes, the fact that a large part is on rocky ground calls for a good sense of balance and technical skills.

There it turns off onto a dirt road to the right and heads south towards the coast. It goes past a number of industrial units as well as the Moni quarry where it turns left heading east.This part of the route is full of cycling thrills, ending up at Governor’s Beach.

Difficulty rate: Hard and uneven surface.It requires a good quality mountain bike with 24 speeds and front fork suspension.
Road condition: Apart from the first 5km of paved roads, the rest of the route is on an uneven surface.
