What makes this tour unique is the fact that it would be difficult and hardly as pleasant for non-athletes to explore its natural beauty with conventional bikes. The route to Milikouri climbs from 440 to 800m through Platys River Valley which is located deep in the Paphos Forest and even most locals are unaware about it's existence. That's not a problem for the e-bikes! Our e-bikes will expand your riding possibilities without compromising the feeling and health benefits of conventional bikes. You still ride a bike but when you push the pedals of a pedal-assist e-bike, a small motor engages and gives you boost so you can zip up hills and cruise over tough terrain. You can go further, faster and with less effort so you can enjoy the ride to the fullest!
Spare tube-tyre levers-mini pumb-small multitool are provided.
