Q. I want a relaxed bike tour. Is there something for me?

For those who mostly desire to explore the natural and cultural heritage of Mykonos, those who wish to discover an off the beaten path beach with crystal clear waters while leisurely wandering at the rural landscapes of the island, those who prefer only occasional encounters with hillsides, Yummy Pedals offers stress-free and child friendly tours addressed to participants of any riding level.

The easiest tours of all, addressed to families and non adrenaline junkies are Fokos and the Bike & picnic tours. 

Whereas, if you are interested in exploring both the cultural and natural attractions and your kids can pedal longer distances, the Authentic Mykonos tour is just right for you.

For toddlers we provide bike trailers, which can be attached to e-bikes, so that you do not need to worry about the extra weight and hills.

Q. I am an experienced and trained cyclist. Do you have a tour for me?

Yummy Pedal bicycle tours are addressed to riders of all levels, from the timid novice to the confident downhill rider and action junkie.

If you love sweating up the hills, we have the right MTB tour for you: the Wind Turbine one, which will generously pay you back with bragging rights and amazing memories of your adventure in Mykonos!

It features changing landscapes; a breathtaking view from the wilderness of Moroergo mountain, some rough earth terrains, isolated beaches, steep inclines and the rewarding feeling of achievement.

Not to mention the originality of a wedding proposal during a romantic cycling tour…

Finally our private VIP full day tour with e-bikes might be ideal for a special surprise and fun day!

Share with us how you have envisioned your cycling adventure and let's plan it together!

Q. Can our young children ride with us?

On Yummy Pedals rides you can bring along your kids and even your dog!

We can provide a toddler’s seat (adjusted at the back of the bike) for a toddler aged 1-3, a trailer allowing the (2-9 year old) child  to pedal at the same time, another trailer fitting two kids 2-7yo, as well as children’s bicycles for all ages.

Fokos or the bike & picnic tours are the easiest ones, addressed to families with children and presenting the least technical difficulties.

Marios, the mascot-dog of Yummy Pedals may also join our ride on the trailer, rendering it an even more child-friendly bike tour.

Q. Why does Yummy Pedals offer a unique experience?

With Yummy Pedals you will travel in time as you will be encountering the fauna, rustic landscapes, traditional churches and pristine beaches of Mykonos away from the bustle of touristic places.

Υummy treats will be boosting your energy levels during your cycling tour. Like mom’s homemade lemonade, which has become famous for its freshness and unparalleled taste!

My guess is that, even if you own a waterproof camera, you probably never had before your personal underwater photographer committed to shooting the best holiday photos of your trip!

And, after all this sweat, these intense emotions, the interchangeable landscapes and feelings, you return home to an organic vineyard, where you can unwind by listening to classical music and tasting some of the best traditional products and wines that Mykonos’ earth is producing.

All the above combined make your Yummy Pedals ride an unforgettable and worth bragging about experience.

Q. Which is the best way to relax after my ride?

Your cardiovascular system will be most grateful for the combination of clean air, exercise, friendliness, relaxation and… red wine!

All Yummy Pedals tour start from and end at Mykonos Vioma Organic Farm. It is a rural setting escaping the stereotypes one may have of Mykonos and allowing its guests to get lost in time and the landscape’s serenity while listening to classical music and sipping some quality wine.

Our small farm’s animals will give you the warmest welcome and it will be difficult resisting the fun of hand feeding our donkey, Marika, or giving a belly rub to our friendly dogs.

If you choose to have a wine and local products tasting experience, you will be rewarded by the freshness of materials and simplicity but excellence of tastes.

Q. At what languages are the bicycle tours offered?

As a fluent speaker of English and French and with my limited knowledge of Spanish and Turkish, I will surely do my best to break the language barriers and create a communication bridge, allowing me to offer you a better insight into our culture and traditions.

Official tours are offered in Greek, French and English.

I want you to feel at home, so this important goal is achieved by breaking the ice through friendliness and understanding to each ones’ needs.

Q. I love photography. Can I take photographs during my ride?

Outdoor activities offer the best memories.

During the ride you'll certainly be inspired and have many chances to shoot cool photos.

Not to mention that your bike tour guide will be transformed into a personal underwater photographer just for you, dedicated to shooting the best holiday photos of your trip to Mykonos!

Well, if the water is chilly for you to dive in, then we’ll make sure you have some fun pictures taken above ground, actually while flying on air or even performing some acrobatics!

Q. How can I meet the non-touristic Mykonos?

As your Mykonian tour guides, with our knowledge and love for our island we will do our best to offer you an excellent introduction to the very distinct characteristics that make Mykonos such a special and unique place.

Mykonos is a region which, despite the incredible -for such a tiny island- touristic growth, preserves its traditions. We strongly believe in the continuation of our local customs and so does Mr. Nikos, Dimitra's father, with his biodynamic cultivation of local varieties of grapes at his Mykonos Vioma vineyard.

Therefore, apart from offering an unforgettable outdoors activity we are also totally dedicated to our task as cultural and natural heritage interpreters. We love sharing our knowledge on the Mykonian architectural, religious and culinary tradition as we cycle among Mykonos’ characteristically whitewashed cubic houses, family owned churches, isolated beaches and rural landscapes.
