Easy Cycling

Hello All,

I wonder if you could kindly help me?

I will be going to Chania in September and I was wondering if there is anywhere around Chania where you can do some easy cycling that is not up mountains and is ideally nice and flat?

of course there are! You can try cycling aroun the lake of Ayia, near Hania, and try to see all the villages around (Fourne, Patelari, Drapano, Vrises, Stalos...) If you want you can go until Meskla or Therisso, it's ascending but if you have all day to spend the route is great!

You can also go to Souda bay and see the fishermans harbor.

Hope you will enjoy!

You can also go out onto the Akrotiri peninsula, and visit the three monasteries: Agia Triada, Gouverneto, and Katholiko. It's mostly flat, but you'd probably need a mountain bike for the path between Gouverneto and Katholiko.

I have seen organised trips where lots of bikes and riders are taken on minibuses and trailers up into the mountains, from where it is all downhill back to base. I must admit that I have no idea who runs these, I have just seen the participants . I'm sure that some internet surfing will find the organisers, or someone reading this may know.
