We came to Crete as a group of senior ladies and wanted to hire bicycles from Stelios, which were in perfect condition. He offered to taken us on a couple of tours, which we discovered on our first to days alone is an absolute must! There are no signposted cycle-routes and it is not much fun on the roads. We did 2 tours with him and he took us off the beaten track through olive groves and tiny villages. Although there is a lot of climb, he was extremely patient, going at a pace we could all keep up with and stopping to explain the vegetation, culture and history as we went along. Lunch was a simple meal at a small café with local produce and home-made tea.
I can really recommend Cycling Creta to people of all ages.It is great value for money and gives you the opportunity to see the “real” Crete.
