Ride the Capital 2019

Join a unique free bike ride through the Old City of Nicosia!

The ride has been created by the Nicosia Tourism Board and the Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia in order to embrace the historical context of our capital and to provide a unique experience through the streets of Nicosia.

The ride will include stops at cultural and historical places of interest where a professional tourist guide will be providing enlightening information (in GR & EN). Each stop will be linked with an exhibit (replica of a historic object) from the collections of The Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia.

The ride will be completed at the Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia where the participants can view the actual exhibits in the Museum’s permanent collections and learn more about Nicosia’s past.

The cyclists’ team of the ‘Home for Cooperation’ will be accompanying the participants and they will be offering five (5) places for people with disabilities or limited mobility and two (2) places on a tandem bike for people with limited sight. We will also have ten(10) bikes available for those who do not have their own bike! Please make your reservation.
