The breathtaking natural landscapes, as viewed from the mountainside, promise a delightful, but very challenging, cycling tour. Its technical characteristics: extensive climbing, steep slopes and a rough & loose gravel road all the way down the mountain (where you may partly need to walk). Yet the route is very scenic and the beaches of Myrsini and Fokos will soothe you with their inviting blue waters. As we return home from a different route, we pass by the reservoir of Ano Mera and stop at a family-owned church for an insight into our religious tradition.

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.
