“The ride of a lifetime!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

If you are up for doing something active on your holiday in Corfu, this is a MUST try activity, although it is not for the faint hearted! Starting at the highest point in Corfu (you do get a minibus to the mountain top), with the most incredible views, you begin your descent down the winding mountain tracks, through olive groves and forests. The halfway stop at the 'ghost village' was a chance to get your breath back and enjoy delicious homemade ginger beer. All to soon it is onwards and downwards again, on road and off road and back to the sea front, for a spectacular ride along the coast.
You do need to be reasonably fit and you do need to keep your nerve (especially if you are a total novice at mountain biking) but with the support and encouragement of two fantastic guides, this really was a ride of a lifetime.

“Holiday making experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

We decided to do the mountain bike trail during our recent stay to Sidari. I have no experience in off road biking and my partner has some. I was a little cautious before hand and at the start but well worth the 38 euros for the trip.

At the start of the day you get kitted out with excellent quality off road bikes and helmets. They make any adjustments needed so you get the most comfortable ride possible. Once this is completed you are driven up the mountain with the bikes on a trailor ( I would not fancy attempting the cycle uphill!).

The first strech is on road and this was great to get adjusted to a new bike and get a feel for the pace. 2 guides were with our group of 4 - 1 taking the lead and the other making sure any further back were ok. They were both very knowledgable giving information about the local area as well as tips on the bike.

On your descent you get to see the real Corfu, riding through olive groves and seeing the abandoned town of Old Perithia. The stop at Old Perithia allowed us the chance to try some proper home made Corfiot ginger beer. It was delicious. Photos were taken during the ride and I got them at the end by just putting them straight onto my camera's memory card. Some great action shots along with some brilliant scenery.

Water is provided but I would recommend you take something to snack on and plenty of suncream.
