This15 kilometres excursion is for mountain bike fanatics who will appreciate the technical difficulties involved. Although there are few changes in gradient, a large part is on rocky ground and requires a good sense of balance and technical skills. It starts where the Lemesos (Limassol) - ancient Amathous route ends, continuing in the same direction along the old Lemesos - Lefkosia (Nicosia) road for 5 kilometres as far as the Moni fly over. There it turns off onto a dirt road to the right and heads south towards the coast. It goes past a number of industrial units as well as the Moni quarry where it turns left heading east. This part of the route is full of cycling thrills. It ends up at Governor’s Beach. Halfway along the route (about 4 kilometres) is a biological waste-processing unit. Just before the uphill leading to the unit, there is a narrow path carved out of the cliff on the right that descends to the dry riverbed of Agios Georgios Alamanos. The road at the riverbed is smoother and heads north for about 600 metres before turning right in order to cross to the other side. It is not far from there to the coast, with Governor’s Beach 5 kilometres away.
Hard and uneven surface. It requires a good quality mountain bike with 24 speeds and front fork suspension.
Apart from the first 5 kilometres of paved roads, the rest of the route is on an uneven surface.
