The Cyclists Paradise
Larnaka has always been a favourite destination for cyclists all over the world thanks to its excellent weather conditions, lack of strong headwinds and varied terrain and scenery, and spring is the perfect time to get riding as part of a group.
If you would like to enjoy a ride en masse whilst visiting Larnaka, three cycling groups meet regularly and welcome new riders.
The Larnaca Cycling Community meet every Wednesday evening, 6.30pm at Europe Square (the start of the Finikoudes promenade). The group says the purpose of the ride is “for everyone to take part irrespective of age, stamina and bike gear.” You can find out more on their Facebook page: Larnaca Cycling Community.
Podilatoparea Savvatou meet on Saturdays, 8am at Lidls on the Aradippou/Larnaka road with routes announced one or two days prior on their Facebook page: Podilatoparea Savvatou. Their goal is to “empower cyclists to gain the strength and endurance… and to get people loving cycling.”
The Faros Cycling Club meet on Sundays and cycle mainly within the Larnaka district, as well as further afield, with the aim to “promote cycling and its benefits in Cyprus and also to provide advice, support and information.” More details are posted on their Facebook page: Faros Cycling Club.
