This tour starts from Tochni Village, in front of our Bike Center and enters the fire roads immediately towards the north of the village. On the top of the first hill, at the 11th km, you can enjoy the spectacular view of the Kalavasos dam. 

After a long descend and some flat sections you are already above Kalavasos dam and not far from Lageia. In Lageia you can get some rest in the local coffee shop (Kafenio) and try some traditional Cyprus sweets to power your ride!

Leaving Lageia, you head to Akapnou through forest roads with some short but steep climb. During springtime the forest is full of coloured flowers that spread their fragrances in the air! You will be passing thorough the traditional village of Akapnou, on the tiny stone paved roads, then head towards Vikla, pass through the local Golf club fields!!! From there you will head mainly of paved road to Kellaki, but before you reach the village you turn left to more forest roads leading you to Vasa. About 2 km before Vasa you are on the highest point of the route with an amazing view of the forest and the seaside of Zygi.

Descending from Vasa to Kalavasos you reach the dam once more, head to Kalavasos Village. In the village center you can take a short stop or you can head directly to Tochni and enjoy a nice cup of coffee in our bikecenter!!!
