In a minivan with the bikes on a trailer we ascend to Crete's most unspoilt mountain regions. At the starting point the bikes are unloaded, you get your helmets and an experienced guide will accompany you downhill into the coastal areas. We will be using minor asphalt roads and well-maintained agricultural roads with only soft uphill passages. It is not a competition but fun instead. The service van follows the group throughout the day.
