Last Friday evening I was invited to join Get Active on their evening Taster Ride, ‘Olive Groves’ around the countryside at the back of Nidri.
We were met by our guide Simon, who kitted us out with a helmet, gloves, the right size mountain bike and a nice gel seat cover! We set off towards the olive groves and then it was off-road on to the rural tracks. The first part of the ride took us into the village of Xaradiatika where we had a break and some yummy homemade ginger biscuits!
After that we cycled through Koloni and up to Rachi. Our guide was chatty and mixed leading the group with dropping back to chat to all of us from time to time. Our ride took us to the base of the Waterfalls and we stopped for a drink (there was also the opportunity to walk up to the Waterfalls if you wanted).
I can honestly say the ride was lots of fun, and the two hours went very quickly, Simon told us we had cycled 14km which was I thought was great! The ride was through the shady olive groves so it was nice and cool and finished just in time to go back and change for a well deserved dinner!
Highly recommended and they have family rides, intermediate, advanced and extreme rides too to suit all levels.
