Cycling on Mykonos Island
Our vans transfer the whole group to the Armenistis Lighthouse, a landmark of a great importance and from there we cover all the alternative side of the island on bikes. Isolated churches, b routes, Mykonos Water Reservoirs, all are included. We normally make two stops to visit two truly majestic beaches, where we enjoy a one short swim (first) and a complete one at the end. Depending on the pace and the energy levels, we might be able to enjoy exploring more of the island (e.g. visit the only one (!) Wind Turbine power generator on the island). Our approach on the standard version of this bike trip, is to always follow an active and leisure approach, focusing more on Greece’s unique elements (sea and culture) than cycling and endurance.
Is biking in Mykonos difficult?
The terrain is the “standard” Cycladic one, where long, flat segments are hard to find, mainly due to the morphology of the islands in general. Cycling in Mykonos would require a mild to intense effort for 50m – 100m (164ft – 330ft), to overcome a short, steep part and then everything becomes normal again. During, those short steep parts, which usually last for only few minutes, getting off the saddle and stepping on the pedals would be all someone needs to do for reaching the towards the end of them. Based on our experience, if someone is familiar on how to efficiently use the gears (selecting the right one before the grade kicks in) everything is nice and doable. Also, our guides usually notify the participants well in advance of an upcoming hilly part.
There are also parts that require a strenuous amount of effort, but they are not included in the standard version of the tour, unless it is specifically required by the participants, usually avid cyclists who want to seek for a challenge.
The tour typically lasts for approximately 6 hours including the time needed for the transfers. However, we can adjust the overall duration of the tour to perfectly suit your schedule.
