CYCLING

cycling

Cycling is not a hugely popular pastime or means of transport in Crete, as might be expected in such a hot and mountainous terrain. There are however a reasonable number of bicycle hire outlets at most tourist locations. Around the coast is generally is fairly flat. As a means of commuting anywhere between Chania and Kissasmos for example, a bicycle is a good a choice of transport as any for the reasonably fit. Though any journey inland will invariably involve steep climbs. As with all vehicle hire in Crete, pay particular attention to the mechanical condition of any machine you intend to hire.
