This tour's innate ability to make you feel like a native, as you swim at the non-touristic beach of Fokos and indulge into the genuine culinary treasures of Mykonos, makes it the most popular bike tour of Yummy Pedals! It is indeed the ideal tour for culinary explorers who look for an easy-to-cycle outdoor activity.

The local delicacies of Mykonos are directly linked to its history and tradition. This tour invites you to both taste and learn the culinary tradition of our island. And don't forget one of the highlights of this tour: the local wine, produced by Mykonos Vioma organic farm!

The destination beach of Fokos, where we set our picnic, is an easily reachable, beautiful landscape. During the tour we will encounter some hilly terrain, but the leisurely nature of this ride will give you all the time needed to conquer these medium difficulty slopes at your own pace.

The relaxing time spent at the beach, the insight into our culinary tradition, the quality of the wine and the freshness of the local delicacies will certainly not disappoint any food lover.

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, whereas at the beach you will enjoy a cool underwater photo shooting, if you want, and of course your beach picnic with traditional products of Mykonos, wine, homemade lemonade & dessert.
  • When we return, you might want to taste our other wines too (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:
Mykonos is hilly, so it is inevitable coming across some hills. If you 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.
