“A great way to see more of Lefkada”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

As a novice on mountain bikes I went on the taster ride with my husband who is a road-biking fanatic. It felt great to feel the breeze as you made your way through the olive groves and up to the first stop in a traditional village. Simon provided biscuits (!) as well as lots of local knowledge and encouragement. Everyone was encouraged, there was no pressure and it was fun. My husband then went on an 'extreme' ride (tailor made to the request of another guest who wanted a trip mainly on tarmac, which suited him just fine!). He rode up to one of the highest points, a white church at over 1000m with magnificent views. This sums up what the two Simons are all about. They do their best to offer what the guests would like, and clearly enjoy helping you have fun! Along with very good and well-maintained Specialized bikes and all the equipment you need, you also get great company and insider knowledge of other places to go and restaurants to eat at etc. as they both live on the island and know many locals. Many thanks to you both!

“Glad we did it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Went on the taster ride with my husband and 2 friends we were holidaying with. I won't say it wasn't hard going because it was still very hot at 6 and we ladies in particular had to get off and walk in parts. However, there is no pressure to do more than you are capable of and we made it in the end. Simon was very friendly - think he was a bit worried about what we might write, but don't worry Simon, we are still alive! It was nice to see some of the area around Nidri which we hadn't explored before and overall we are glad we did it.

“Nothing but fun in the outskirts of Nidri”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Went out for the Intermediate ride with my 12 year old son, and we enjoyed it to the full. The experience started in a very friendly atmosphere and the same feeling continued throughout the three hours of riding.

The ride itself provided a good overview to different terrain types in Lefkas and we got to experience the misery of ascending the hills and the thrill of descending them. My son particularly enjoyed the descents in the olive groves. As we were given a private session and we started early (in a Greekish manner anyway) we were enjoying the quiet roads and paths on the way, and could focus on the riding and the tips given by Simon T.

Everything worked out just perfectly and Simon T. provided us with a great and professional riding companion (not to mention the extra manouvre provided in one of the drops). Should we be heading to Lefkas the next summer, as planned, we for sure will be riding the more challenging rides and in multiple occasions.

“Fun bike ride exploring Lefkas!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Lovely ride on Fri evening with the guide Simon and four other guests through the olive groves at the back of Nidri. Some fun off road parts and some great views from Xaradiatika! Definitely recommend to anyone looking for something different to do on holiday with friends or family!!

“excellent for the mountain biking lovers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Went with my wife on the Intermediate Ride and it was a great experience. The bikes are very well maintained and the guys are helpful and really enthusiastic about their "office" job :)
The trail itself has it all, tarmac, dirt, rocks and a little bit of mud and it ends with a great (technical) downhill.
At least for me i could say that it was an eye-opener...Some of the riders were well in their 60's and had a wayy better stamina than me. Makes you think :)
