Cycling and Walking Specialists
Happy New Year 2015, wishing you all an active New Year.
Welcome to Wheelie Cyprus
For the last ten years Wheelie Cyprus has provided mountain biking and walking services in the Polis area of Cyprus. That's the Western end of the Island and on the Northern facing coast in what is normally referred to as the Greek side of the island. In addition to Quality mountain bike hire we offer Guiding for both mountain biking and walking and have race bikes also for hire. We also offer the use of a GPS enabling you to follow one or more of our pre-programmed routes. If you fancy a week long break in Cyprus then we can also cater for you. You have two options here; a fully guided option or a serviced self-guided holiday, either cycling or walking, using the GPS system. We run guided holiday trips here from autumn to early summer - during our cooler periods. Self-guided trips can be taken at any time. Cyprus is a fantastic place for winter training for your time trial, sportive or triathlon event.
Please note that for bike hire, we have no shop. For your ease and convenience, we provide a delivery service to your accommodation which is free in the Polis/Latchi area.
Race Bike Hire in Cyprus
We are now able to offer road bikes for hire in Cyprus. We have just purchased a small number of Felt F85 road bikes with Shimano Tiagra gears. This is a no nonsense bike that is ideally suited to the steep climbs that can be found around the Polis Chrysochous area of Cyprus. These bikes have been incredibly popular, even more so since we changed the rear cassette from an 11-25 to a 12-28, it just makes those hills a little more manageable.
Mountain bike hire in Cyprus.
If you want to experience the superb riding that Cyprus has to offer then you need a quality mountain bike. We have a selection of branded mountain bikes available for hire, all lovingly cared for and fully serviced to professional standards. If you are staying in the Polis area then our service includes free delivery to your villa, hotel or apartment.
Our better bikes are the TREK 6000's with hydraulic disc brakes and 10 speed gearing. We reckon that these beauties are the best hire bikes currently available in the Pafos area of Cyprus. If you want a less special bike then we still have some of our older, but stunningly efficient 9 speed Orange Gringos for hire. For more details, look at our Bike Hire page.
Self-guided mountain bike holidays.
So you don't want to join a bunch of sweaty strangers on a mountain bike tour of Cyprus. You do however fancy riding over here and with as little fuss and bother as possible. Then why not try one of our self guided holidays. We will provide you with a bicycle, a GPS and some trip notes. All you have to do is cycle between destinations. Everything else is taken care of for you. Have a look at our self-guiding page for more details.
Mountain bike holidays.
It is not necessary to "rough it" just because you are on a mountain biking holiday. With us you will get superb riding and traditional hotel accommodation right next to the beach. The family run hotel that we use is at latchi Harbour where there is a variety of fish tavernas right on your doorstep.
Our centre based biking holidays are tailored for rides of all abilities and include all guiding and support, en suite hotel accommodation, airport transfers, breakfasts, and lunches on ride days. We organise our trips based on cycling experience and fitness. Our excellent value for money holiday will cost you £610 excluding flights; for more details have a look at our Dates and Prices page. We are now in our tenth year in Cyprus and if you want to see comments from previous guests have a look at our reviews on Tripadvisor and Cycle1st.
Mountain bike guiding - Day rides.
Guiding is available on a daily basis, you do not have to be on one of our organised holidays to benefit. Just call or email to check availability.
The island of Cyprus is criss-crossed with tracks and trails ideally suited to mountain biking and varying in difficulty from free-flowing forest trails to gnarly single track. These tracks are not always easy to find and very few are signed. The use of a guide will enable you to experience the best of these trails. Your guides are fully trained by the OTC (now part of the CTC) and qualified personal fitness trainers. We operate to a health and safety plan that is based on the recommendations of the British - Adventure Activities Licensing Authority (AALA).
If you do not want to join a guided ride with us, why not consider buying Helen's excellent e-book, the Unique Cyprus Cycling Guide
For a small additional charge, when you hire one of our bikes, you can also hire a Garmin Edge 200 GPS unit with pre-programmed rides. When you are on holiday time is precious; you want to spend time riding not route planning. Our GPS's will enable you to do just that. See the GPS page for more details.
If you are more into walking than cycling the we can also help you. We run group walking holidays on the island or for the less group oriented walkers we offer a self guided option. Cyprus really is a stunning place to walk in the Spring or Autumn, the spring especially sees the island green and alive with colour from the wonderful wild flowers that are still abundant in fields and tracksides. Take a look at our Walking Pages for more details.
At Wheelie Cyprus we want to show you some of the best mountain biking and walking in Cyprus. If you don't want to join us for a week long holiday, but are coming to Cyprus anyway, we provide mountain bike guiding for groups or individuals. Alternatively, If you just want to do it yourself, you can hire one of our quality mountain bikes or sign up to one of our self-guided trips. The choice is yours; the riding is unforgettable. If you are not a biker but you just want to walk in Cyprus, we can cater for that too. Check out our walking pages. Unless you are a beach lover, spring is the best time to visit Cyprus. The weather is warming up, the countryside is green and there is a profusion of wild flowers. The countryside really is stunning here at this time of year.
