I am a committed road rider so this was my first time doing any MTB of any note. Simon provided great advice and tips on how to attack the climbs and descents giving me enough guidance to pick up the basics necessary to do the intermediate ride with confidence. It was great to be out in the heat doing exercise and getting to see some local villages and take in some of the great views. If I had my time again I would have arranged for another few rides

Did 3 rides with Get Active. One mountainbike ride to the highest point of the Island, one tour around the Island and a shorter mountainbike ride with my son. Get Active were very service oriented and pleasant to ride with. The island is very well suited for biking with lots of mountain roads and very few cars in the mountains.

I was on a advanced ride with Simon and two guys from Scotland. It was really nice, I loved the trails and the villages which was up on the mountain. The only thing which was a bit annoying, and this is why I give just 4 stars, was the bike which had ´british´ brake setup ( left-rear, right-front). I understand that they have more people who came from that area, but I think it´s normally to have some bikes for those who live in central Europe. This was just a little mistake, in all everything was nice and great. :)

Thank you for writing us this good review. We have British-designed Saracen mountain bikes this year however in 2012 and 2013 we had Specialized Rockhoppers with the European/American brake set-up so it just depends on the bikes we choose.

Get Active offered a really good experience of mountain biking in Nidri and it was also good opportunity to get familiar with Nidris surroundings. By selecting right level of ride you can have enough challenges and exercises for yourself. For us intermediate ride was a good choice. Simon (guide) was very experienced and inspiring. Riding was so fun that we would do it again! This fits for everybody: couples, families, friends, solo.

We went on the beginners bike ride as we were new to mountain biking. Found it a pleasurable way to see the countryside of Lefkada, and Simon our guide was very knowledgable about the local area and a great conversationalist. Very well organised and safe. Definitely a must do if you are in the area!!!
