Spent 5 days at the end of January cycling in the Akamas - dry, mild and some lovely sunshine too - only got wet once - 30 minutes at the end of a ride. Hired bikes and GPS from Helen and Alistair which were in excellent condition and delivered to the hotel on the first morning. All equipment provided was top notch. Support was there when needed we had a broken chain which was replaced and delivered to the hotel the day it broke. Helen advised prior to the trip that a hire car would be perfect for transporting the bikes as we had chosen accommodation outside of Polis. (Akamas Health Farm and Spa). This was an excellent tip (we got a big car and took front wheels off bikes) and allowed us to explore more of this beautiful area by ourselves. One day we would be in deserted Turkish villages, the next in citrus groves and yet another day right on the beach on the Akamas peninsula. The GPS was pre programmed with routes from 25 - 40k of varying degrees of difficulty - easy to use and 100% reliable. Trails are challenging but all varied and mostly forest roads. Plenty of climbs, beautiful scenery from the top of the mountains and some lovely descents. Never saw anyone else on a bike all week - would recommend Cyprus and Helen and Alistair as an excellent escape from the cold wet winter mountain biking here in the UK. Highly Recemmended
