Mountain biking

In the North as well in the South the uplands are ideal for mountain biking. Both the Troodos range and the Kyrenia Mountains are covered with network of dirt forest trails which would be extremely tedious for hiking but are paradise. With the guidance or group biking you are able to complete both ranges in a couple of days. Mountain bikes are for sale predominantly in South Nicosia and Limassol, and for rent in the main Troodos resort of Platres. Only very few bikes are equipped with pumps or tyre repair kits. The repair shops are found in most of the South’s larger towns which you may find useful when buying patches or replacing a pump worn out from constantly pumping up flat tyres. Plenty of thorns on the road ensure an instant incidence of punctures and there is the usual hot-country problem of the sun melting the rubber material, so do not leave your bike in full sun.
