Anyone bikepacked in Cyprus

Posted on
  • Hi all - looking for tips for a 4 day bikepacking trip to cyprus.
    Going off road with a hard tail 29er, wondering if anyone has some good routes? and tips on free camping?

    Many thanks!

  • At the Polis campsite in NW Cyprus at the moment. This map is good for the municipal campsites. The official picnic sites are fine for a low key overnight camp and seem to have toilets and water - they are deserted at the moment. Yellow roads on the map are unsurfaced but seems some are now tarmaced since then.

  • Also Akamas peninsula would seem fine for a quiet overnight - I mean there were two guys with a 4x4, table, umbrella so seems no one is really bothered. Also says no hunting but shotgun shells all over and two hunters gave me a lift to the top of the ridge in their pickup.

  • Thanks mate - that map is great. Going to head to paphos and around akamas/ mount olympus
