The mountain biking trails in our program are spread out geographically, covering a variety of topography to give you a well-rounded feel of North Cyprus. We will visit Güzelyurt, the citrus capital in the flat west, Kyrenia Mountain Range with views of the Mediterranean in the north and the plains in the south and along the secret beaches of Karpaz peninsula in the very east. The mountain biking trails are mostly made up of narrow forest roads and occasional tarmac roads with little or no traffic.
In general, the rides are leisurely with intermittent breaks for snacks and exploring interesting spots such as the Kantara Castle, abandoned Copper mines of Lefka, aqueducts of Lapta, and the roman chapels of Karpaz. All rides are accompanied with two local guides providing guiding, interpretation and technical support. The difficulty of the trails requires skill level “B” and fitness level “2”.
Skill Level B: Can cycle on loose gravel, off road trails, typically at trail centers but stays away from any demanding terrain such as rocks and roots.
Fitness Level 2: Cycles two or more times per week at a steady pace for 3-4 hours and likes rolling trails with some long climbs.
