Avid – and experienced! – cyclists, Kythera beckons you! This island is wild, rugged and dotted with innumerable hills, so if you’re a cycling fanatic and are in excellent shape you’ll find trails that take you through pristine landscapes and quaint traditional villages. Take your time and explore, but a mountain bike is recommended for the more difficult trails. Always wear a helmet.
If you’re more of a casual cyclist, you too will find this island offers many easier routes to enjoy the sport. These easier routes take you through beautiful villages. For this level of experience, stick to the following villages: Paleopoli, Agia Pelagia, Diakofti, Avlemonas, Logothetianika, Livadi, Kalamos and Gerakari. When cycling on the road, be very careful of sharp turns and thick vegetation that reduce visibility for oncoming vehicles. Helmets are a must.
