Panos was a great help and suggested a route my wife and I could take back from where we were going that followed the beautiful ridgeline that ended up coming down into town - amazin road and nice bikes!

I, my son, Jim, and a friend rented bikes for a day from Panos to venture into the seemingly endless forest north west of Skopelos town. We were amazed by the quality of the bikes with brilliant, easy to use, new-fangled gears. I can honestly say that the bikes were better than any I had previouslyl ridden and the service was impeccable. Panos truly has a passion for his job. The only negative aspect - at least for me - was that my 12 year old son kept having to wait for me after I'd dismounted to walk up the many hills.

Nicola and I hired bikes for three days from Panos at Skopelos Cycling. He provided us with excellent well maintained bikes and all the equipment we required, even some gearing adjustment when we saw him by the supermarket! We had a fantastic time with some challenging hills especially on our ride from Skopelos town to Ag. Ioannis (Mamma Mia Church). Thank you Panos for your friendly advice and providing us the means to the highlight of our holiday.

My partner Micky hired a bike from Skopelos Cycling for five days, and here are his thoughts:
The smell of the forest on Delphi the morning after a thunderstorm will be my lasting memory of a wonderful week on Skopelos, which is an ideal size to explore by bike. Panos is an enthusiastic and knowledgable cyclist himself, with an intimate knowledge of the island. He provided me with a well-prepared and solid hardtail mountain bike that took all the abuse I could throw at it, suggested routes to take, and helpfully corrected the rubbish map of the island I'd just bought (avoid the ROAD brand 1:40,000 map and look for a 1:25,000 map instead). The 5-day rate was excellent value, and helmet and accessories were free of charge. There isn't a lot of singletrack on the island, but the views from the unpaved paths in the hills are truly spectacular. There are some great climbs (and of course descents) on the smaller and rougher trails, with gradients that had me struggling to keep the front end down at times. You really get a feel for the island on a bike and get to see it from every angle, and Palouki (overlooking Skopelos town) was my personal favourite (though the descent from Delphi to Panormos beach was a close second). I've no hesitation recommending Skopelos Cycling and you won't be disappointed, whatever type of cycling you prefer. Cheers Panos!

My husband and I spent a week on Skopelos and one of the highlights was the day we hired bikes to explore some of the recommended beaches. We were very impressed by the friendly and comprehensive service. We were offered helmets, locks, high viz jackets, repair kit, spare inner tube, pump and a bag. The bikes were very good quality and we were given clear advice on the use of the gears as well as a recommended route. It was challenging but very exhilerating - we got amazing views over the bays and beaches. A few days later we hired bikes again for a short ride to our favourite beach. Skopelos Cycling comes highly recommended!! We plan to return to Skopelos next year and will probably hire bikes for the full time we are there - they are useful even just to travel locally for shopping etc. Thank you :)
