Cycling Courses Across Cyprus
The excellent weather conditions prevailing on the island means cycling sports can be enjoyed almost throughout the year. But what makes Cyprus stand out as a heaven for cyclists is its compactness. The short distances and diversity of routes mean that there are rapid changes of terrain entailing a variety of different road surfaces from rocky to clay and steep to flat, and different landscapes combining attractive beaches, modern cities, vineyards and old tranquil villages.
