ABOUT US

Tour Leader......

Paul Dionysiou

Generations of my family have lived and worked in the mountain village of Ineia on the outskirts of the Akamas National Park, and where for the past 12 years enjoyed trekking and cycling this wild uninhabited region of Cyprus.

 As a keen mountain bike enthusiast, I have ridden some of the best forest trails in the UK, and can say that the Akamas National Park has everything to offer any mountain bike enthusiast without the rain and mud you often find in the UK.

We have invested in Whyte highly rated T130 Trail Bike range, which we have tested throughout the most demanding trails in the Akamas Peninsula, and have found the T130 SX to preformed exceptionally well on the most technical trails, which is all down to Whyte outstanding frame geometry and design. 

 
With hundreds of kilometers of twin track trails, Cyprus Akamas Peninsula has some of the best Mountain biking trails
