Rhodes: Cycling Activity Holiday
(Ro-dos in Greek)
Despite the blazing heat Rhodes can be a great destination for cyclists thanks to its varied landscape and well-build roads. Whether you are a mountain bike fanatic or prefer the less strenuous road bike Rhodes has something to offer everyone. However, cycling holidays in Rhodes are recommended during the cooler months, particularly for those who are not used to the intense heat of the Greek summer. Rhodes cycling holidays are organised by a number of tour companies and usually include accommodation and airport transfers.
Cycling is a popular sport in Rhodes, even among local people. Indeed, the only velodrome prior to the Athens Olympic Games in 2004, was located in Rhodes and had been since 1920. Currently four cycling clubs exist on the island which are all members of the Local Cycling Association – a group supported by Greece's National Cycling Federation. National and International Cycling events are regularly organised in the island of Rhodes including the world famous International Cycling Tour of Rhodes.
