Crete as we Live it

Cycling in Hersonissos

Nine bike routes to cycle your way around Hersonissos 

It's spring, summer is on the way, it’s about time to take our bikes out of the warehouse, and put all “excuses” in the attic: the warm weather is on our side as well as the Municipality of Hersonissos who created a lovely guide with bicycle routes crossing the terittory of the municipality, from the coastal areas to the more mountainous. The routes “connect” traditional settlements with more touristic areas, monasteries and archaeological sites and of course, everywhere dominates the beautiful nature and the ever changing landscape of Crete.

Overall, the nine routes apply to cyclists of all levels, four of them being designed for road cyclists and five of them for mountain cyclists. And don’t worry, you won’t get lost: there are road signs for all these routes.   

So, enjoy biking in Hersonissos and don’t forget your helmet!
