Being an avid cyclist and not being able to bare being away from bikes (road and MTB) for to long I came across the best guide and cycling company in Cretewhen i went to speak to Cyling Creta about a ride for me and my seven year old son whilst on holiday. My son didnt have a great deal of experience on an MTB but always enjoyed stunt parks on his BMX so i was a little concerned about the transition and the routes on offer. However, he got to trial a number of bikes the evening before our ride that was set for the next morning at 8am. Me my son and the guide drove about 45 minutes to Lassithi Plateau Trail where we enjoyed incredibly beautiful scenery, real nature, great food with locals and experiences that we will never forget. We did 23 km loop on top of the mountain with 120m climbing which i recorded here – http://www.strava.com/activities/173925096 i was proud my son completed this course at his age and so was he. A real memory that he will cherish forever. In addition to the cycling our guide told us a lot about the island, the area we cycled and lots about horticulture and agriculture. incredibly insightful and interesting. The company also offer excellent trails for the grown ups which i cannot wait to get back a try! see you next year.
