What you'll do

We will take guests on a guided bike tour of the medieval centre of Nicosia. During the tour we'll go over the history of the island from the beginning of time to the current years. Our experience is unique because it offers a rounded perspective of the city: The bike route is carefully selected to avoid traffic/showcase the best preserved traditional houses, we are a group of locals who love our city and want to share it, we offer a connection to the culture & history, through our stories and discussion. We start by a round of introductions and a brief timeline of the history of Cyprus; we'll come back to this timeline various times during the tour when we stop at specific landmarks. Our tour passes through the main sites of the city, The Ledra Palace, the Paphos gate, the green line and Ledras street passing, the Cornaro Residence, Archibishop House, National Struggle Museum, National Gallery, Old Railroad system, Nicosia Old Aqueduct, Famagusta Gate and Eleftheria Square. A stop for coffee/lemonade will be held at a local off-the-beaten-path "Kafeneio". We'll keep guests engaged with questions and a dialogue in discovering how the historical events took place. We want guests to leave with knowledge and appreciation of the history and culture of Cyprus. We want this tour to put Cyprus on the map for people and to remember what they learned when they have returned back home.
Other things to note
We will rent city bikes from the town centre for the duration of the tour. Please come in closed shoes, bring sunscreen, water, a camera and some cash!

  • Identity verified
I'm Mike, I grew up in Nicosia and my biggest passion is cycling.
Ever since I was a kid I loved action, bikes and adventure. It got me into bike racing and I was one of the first athletes to represent Cyprus internationally.
Nowadays my passion still continues to evolve around bicycles. For the last 20 year I've been coaching elite athletes who compete internationally, I've been organizing races and sporting events and I've been running tours the showcase the best of the landscape, history and culture of Cyprus.
If you would like to get a full immersion in to what is Cyprus, come along on a tour. I'd love to show you my country from the saddle of a bike- you will be leaving with a lot more than a bike ride.
