Our next Cycle route is the ‘Polis to Pyrgos’ visitcyprus route which is a total distance of around 48km.
Route: Polis 30m, Gialia 30m (12km), Nea Dimmata 25m (14km), Pomos 35m (20km), Pachyammos 80m (24km), Pyrgos 20m (48km).
One of the most picturesque roads on the island, this route is mostly coastal, so you’ll have the sea air in your face – there’s nothing more refreshing!
Difficulty Rating: Easy and almost flat road with only one uphill pas Kokkines. There are often strong onshore winds in the area, particularly in the afternoon. A street bike with at least 14 speeds is required.
Road condition: Good quality paved roads throughout.
The route begins in Polis and travels along the coast in a northeasterly direction to Pachyammos. It then does a little detour, climbing up into the mountains in a southerly direction in order to by-pass the Turkish enclave of Kokkines, after which it goes downhill to pick up the coastal road again to Pyrgos.
