GUIDED MOUNTAIN BIKE TOURS

 

Live a unique mountain bike adventure through the unspoiled and unknown nature of Crete

Cyclingcreta offers a wide range of bike tours at remote areas of Crete in many different levels . The pace of the tours is slow to moderate depending on the level. The higher the level the faster the pace. The tours are focused on exploring Crete and have fun. We do stops to admire the view, rest, take photos, talk, have lunch -dinner or swim (when possible).

Everyone who stays in Crete can book a guided tour. If you stay inside our “shuttle service area” we offer free pick-up and drop-off service. You can reach us also with public bus or car (bus stop is 300meters outside our bike center). The meeting point of the tours is cyclingcreta bike center at Lyttos Beach Hotel (Analipsi, Hersonisos).

 

Τhe difficulty of a tour is not defined by the kilometers but by the uphill and the difficulty of the downhill, before you choose a tour find your level.

 
Level 1
Children 7-11 years old and people that can ride a bike but don’t do sports.
Flat tours through olive groves and gardens on smooth dirt roads
Level 2
People and children older than 12 years old who do sports and ride a city bike frequently.
Hilly tours on smooth dirt roads and several uphill sections
Level 3
Only for mountain bikers and road cyclists who ride 1-2 times per week.
Mountainous tours with longer climbs and several gravel sections
 
Choose an e-bike, it will help you to climb even the biggest hill (but it will not improve your riding skills).
