If you love mountain biking, you will love riding on the beautiful Greek island of Lesvos. Lesvos is a big island (the 3rd largest in Greece) yet it is one of the least discovered and retains an authentic feel. Cycling is the perfect way to get off the beaten track and immerse yourself in its traditions and culture. Out and about on two wheels you’ll be able to take in the sights at a slower pace. The island is home to a huge variety of birds and plants and has a wealth of unspoilt beaches, archaeological and religious monuments. The locals are super friendly, you’ll come across leafy town squares where old men sit for hours drinking coffee and playing back gammon and it’s not uncommon to see people still using donkeys to get around. The mountainous terrain means that there are literally hundreds of rides to discover. Here’s a few of our favourites, all start close to the bohemian village of Skala Eressos and the Neilson run Aeolian Village Beachclub in the south-west of the island.
