Description

On this active tour - with a few moderate rises - we bike on small asphalt roads and well-maintained agricultural trails (30%) through the lush green valley of the river Mavros until we reach Crete's largest orange growing area at Skines. On our route we cross through traditional villages and discover hidden Byzantine chapels. We'll find ample opportunity to taste oranges, avocados or kiwis right off the tree. After some Cretan refreshments (inclusive) in a village kafenion we rise to the top of the Coastal Chain where we start our downhill through ancient olive groves back to Agia Marina. No service van.
A medium tour suitable for active adults and teenagers in "normal" condition. Expect firm country roads, some gravel passages and some steeper & faster downhill parts.
