This is our full cycling program in the bicycle prefecture of Rethymnon, Crete. We aim to introduce your holiday resort’s most beautiful cycling areas, using best quality bicycles. The cycling routes follow quiet asphalt roads, with slight ascents and lots of downhill sections.
Please see the cycling program for the length of the cycling excursions (in km). You will be taken to the bicycle starting-points by bus. These cycling programs are easy-to-do because of the “downhill character”: suited for cycling beginners, weekend bikers, families with their cycling children and for all participants who have a limited physical condition.
On request we can also organize "extra" 1 day tours. This however depends on the demand for extra tours, while keeping an eye on our already scheduled regular tours. Guests should contact us in order to inquire about the possibilities.
