Mountain Bike Riding
Cycling is one of the healthiest and most exciting ways to discover Aphrodite Hills Resort and its surroundings, from the green golf courses to the stunning cliffs at the Cove overlooking the Mediterranean. The terrain varies from fairly easy roads with some hills within Aphrodite Hills Resort or the miles of flat, easy routes around Aphrodite’s Rock, to challenging off-road routes and some serious gradients in the hills surrounding the Resort.
Biking at Aphrodite Hills offers a great selection of the latest generation of mountain bikes for all levels of experience, as well as road bikes, which are great for visiting nearby villages or beaches. Bikes can be hired for as little as one day to as long as a week or more. Helmets, locks and maps are all provided.
The younger members of the family don’t need to be left behind, as there are also junior bikes for all ages, with or without stabilisers. For toddlers aged 18 months and over, a child trailer or seat can be attached to an adult’s bike, so they need not miss out on the family excursion. Similarly, for those aged six and over who are determined to keep up with mum and dad, trailer bikes provide the ideal solution.
Guided Cycle Tours
Alternatively, you could join one of the guided cycle tours, which include an easy ride for all the family over flat terrain to the village of Kouklia or a more challenging ride for more experienced cyclists, either to the Port of Paphos or Limassol.
For more serious cyclists or triathletes, there is plenty of good road cycling territory as well as routes for running and a 151 sq. metre indoor pool for lap training, or at the famous Aphrodite Rock for open water swimming.
Whatever your ability, whatever your level of fitness, whatever your age, cycling is one of the most enjoyable activities which, thanks to the Cyprus climate, can be enjoyed at any time of year.

Five kilometres from the Resort, through the village of Kouklia, you can climb to the summit of the local hills. This is a relatively easy, uphill walk, and in 45 minutes you will be rewarded with an unbeatable Mediterranean panorama and be able to see the green of Aphrodite Hills Golf Courses from a completely different perspective.
