General description:

Here’s a chance to try electric bikes while exploring the traditional villages inland of Kissamos.
This is an easy cycling route of medium length with some slope, good views and picturesque routes. It does involve a couple of hours of pedalling, at reduced effort thanks to the electric motor.
We have some brand-new electric assisted mountain bikes that make cycling on mountainous Crete possible even to the non-fanatic cyclists among us!
We will be cycling exclusively on quiet, paved roads.

You bring with you: a day backpack with water, a snack or some cash for the taverna, sun cream.
