CRETE CYCLING starting from Heraklion
Heraklion Center of Crete with harbor, airport and historic old town. For most of us only transit station upon arrival or departure from Crete. But for cyclists an ideal place to start the roadbike or mountain bike vacation.
CRETAN SPORTS CYCLING is the first address when it comes to promoting cycling and mountain biking on the island. Eva and Fanouris are the two owners with a love and passion for this sport, as one can only find and experience on Crete. Their excellent knowledge of the route and the way in which they organize their tours and perform in harmony with the Cretans and nature is a great class and deserves our recognition.
The focus is on guided daily and multi-day trips. Mainly with the mountain bike but increasingly with e-bikes, pedelecs and touring bicycles. The crossing of Central Crete, East and West Crete is the highlight and an unforgettable experience for mountainbikers. On 6-7 tour days you can travel from stage to the stage and experience Crete far away from mass tourism get unique places that are so rare in Europe. And on top of all you get to know the Cretan hospitality in all cordiality.
The rental of mountain bikes, touring bikes and e-bikes is another focal point. Also popular are the city tours through Heraklion - a city tour on the bike.
With passion, the two have launched the TOUR OF CRETE. A single race bike race and multi day tour over 6 stages through Crete. From May 15 to 20, 2017, the race / tour will take place in its second edition. Being there and experiencing a unique week is the motto.
