As the road to Fokos winds through the rural landscapes of Mykonos, we stop halfway at a traditional private church for a short visit and an insight by your guide into the religious traditions of Mykonos.

Then we continue our ride by the soothingly peaceful water of the reservoir of Ano Mera, before encountering the picturesque view of Fokos beach. As we coast down the last downhill before our destination we have the chance to admire this unique landscape and take some panoramic souvenir photos.

The inviting blue of the sea will certainly not leave you uninterested. You can also admire it during a short hike, as the hillside of Fokos beach will be calling you to its sunkissed (easy to hike) path, from where you can enjoy the magnificence of the Aegean sea and the wild landscape of Mykonos.

This is the easiest trail, but -because of Mykonos’s morphology- it is impossible not to have some hilly parts, especially on the way back. Nevertheless, the leisurely pace we follow allows each participant to cycle at their own pace and nobody gets the feeling of being left behind.

If you still worry about the inclines, you may also consider the option of upgrading to an e-bike, i.e. a motor-assisted bicycle smoothening your pedalling and helping you conquer all terrain.

WHAT TO EXPECT:
A taste of the real Greece...

  • We start our cycling trips at our organic vineyard and farm “Mykonos Vioma” (check www.mykonosvioma.com). 
  • Dimitra's dad has run the farm for 29 years, he took it on as a ruin and has created the only biodynamic vineyard on Mykonos
  • We are local guides, sharing our love for Mykonos and enthusiasm for cycling with our guests
  • We'll fit you out with mountain bikes & helmets and provide or fill your water bottles before heading off (preparations and tutorial usually takes ~30minutes)
  • During our ride we will stop in a small church for a ~20 minutes  interpretative talk on our local traditions
  • At the beach we have enough time for swimming & underwater photo shooting (weather permitting) OR alternatively hiking, before refreshing with homemade lemonade & a snack.
  • When we return, you might be hungry and, if you have time, you can have lunch with our farm-to-table & local Greek tapas, as well as taste our wines (not included in the bike tour fee), and take in the beautiful view.
  • Finally, you may join a free tour of our vineyard (daily at fixed time) and of course play with or hand feed our farm animals.

NOTE:
The tour features also an optional –short but with a demanding uphill- route to the neighboring Myrsini beach, so as to meet the more advanced riders’ abilities and interests.
