WHY BIKING

EXPERIENCE

 

Do you think that Crete is all about the sea? Check out what a day in the mountains can bring...

Riding through hidden trails, we ascend to Crete's most unspoiled mountain regions.

 

At the starting point, the bikes are unloaded, you get your helmets and an experienced guide will accompany you downhill into the coastal areas.

 

We will be using minor asphalt roads and well-maintained agricultural roads with only soft uphill passages.

 

It is not a competition but fun instead. 

The Neighborhoods of Kakhodiki

-Starting point: The ancient village of Kandanos.

-Tour: A guided, easy to medium experience ride. Cycling now abandoned backroads used for centuries for commuting and trade-shipping we circle both sides of Kakhodiki canyon. The village consists of 32 unique neighbourhoods, some still habited, most of them abandoned as the city life embraced the majority of the mountainous population. Stone build houses still standing by the road, springs and fountains still waiting on horses and travellers will offer us a break of sweat. Although impossible to name each one while cycling we will meet everything from shepherd’s huts, long ago abandoned small hydration dams and the gardens they used to water, fully operational traditional guesthouses, tour guided olive oil factory facility and the ghostly neighbourhoods in the west side of the canyon.

 

- Includes: Guide, beverages & snacks, pro bike, helmet, 25L Backpack, pump, spare tubes, tools kit. 1.2 –Includes beverages and snacks. 1.3 –Includes guided tour in the olive oil factory.
