I recently started working for Horizon Watersports. As part of our training and team bonding a guided mountain bike ride was organised, run by Get Active Lefkas.
The day before the ride our height measurements were taken to make sure we had the correct sized bike for the following day. The day came and I didn’t know what to expect from the bike ride having never been to Nidri before. However, after the briefing I was excited for what was to come. There is a lot of riding to do in this area!
Our ride was an easy/intermediate one. We started on a flat road and after 15 minutes or so we were off road cycling a small uphill section. We rode through olive groves and past farms, with amazing views along the way.
On the ride we visited a small-secluded village by the name of Charadiatika where we found a fresh water spring and a very local looking Meat Taverna in the Village Square. Hoping we will head back their for a meal sometime!
Once we reached the top we had a break and the chance to catch our breath before the downhill single-track descent. My expectations of this were high and I was not dissapointed!
I really enjoyed myself especially whizzing down the track. You could choose between rocky sections or an optional gentler route, but I went for the drops and the rocks!
I thoroughly enjoyed the ride and would recommend it to anyone, no matter their past mountain biking experience. I look forward to my next ride, whether that takes me around the Island exploring local sites such as Nidri’s waterfall, or one of the more advanced routes.
This bike tour is part of the Horizon Watersports 3 & 6 day freedom pass. So what are you waiting for?!
