Larnaka (Larnaca) - Nisou Cycling Route

This 61km route from Larnaka (Larnaca) to Nisou­ through the hills of the Kakoradjia region ­ is a difficult ride and links up nicely with a number of alternative routes.

Starting at the Larnaka Port roundabout, it travels along Stratigos Timagia Avenue, crosses the traffic lights at the Fire Department, and continues straight to the next traffic lights, where it turns left to reach the traffic lights by Phaneromeni Church on the Larnaka Airport - Meneou road. From there it turns right and goes south, past the airport roundabout and southwest to Meneou village. Just before Kiti village, it turns right towards Mazotos village, which is about 10km further down, after the fuel station. The fuel station also happens to be the starting point for the Mazotos-Vavatsinia-Kofinou route. From Mazotos, the route continues west towards Alaminos village and reaches Kofinou village, where it meets the old Lefkosia (Nicosia) - ­ Lemesos (Limassol)  road. It then turns right and to the north towards Lefkosia. From this point on, it becomes more difficult, owing to a 6km long / 220m high vertical climb. After that, it is downhill all the way through the villages of Pyrga, Mosfiloti, Alampra and Nisou.
