Bike Lefkas – An Iconic Endurance MTB Ride to one of the peaks

Ride Stats: Distance: 40km / Elevation Gain: 1278m / Calorie Burn: 2300

The white church can be seen perched on the tip of a peak above Nidri, one of the highest points on the island, the chapel of Saint Ilias stands at an altitude of just under 1000m. This full day ride is only for the brave, starting out at 8am (or earlier in high season) and climbing for approximately 4 hours on a mixture of fire roads and single track, riders must have a high level of fitness and a lot of spirit! Pure mountain bike heaven the effort is worth the rewards of the panoramic views from up high and the adrenaline filled descent.

A stop at a cafeteria in a mountain village will give riders the chance to refuel before returning to Nidri.
