  First we collect you by bus from your hotel and drive to the monastery of Arkadi. Before we set off on our bikes you will have a chance to visit the historic and very famous monastery. Arkadi played a very important part in Crete's history of resistance against the Turks and you will also be able to see a fascinating collection of icons, weapons and clerical items in the museum. We then get on our bikes and cycle through stunning scenery, olive groves and orange trees, passing through the villages of Amnatos and Kyrianna. On the way down we will stop for a coffee break at the lovely village of Asteri. Here you will get a glimpse of how Cretan people still live and work in the traditional way. We then pass through Hamalevri and eventually arrive at Stavromenos and Scaleta, where the bus will be waiting to take us to Margarites. Just outside the village we get back on the bikes and you will get a chance to explore this beautiful location, which has been famous for its pottery for centuries. Then we'll meet up and have a relaxing and fun barbecue in the picturesque countryside. After the barbecue we cycle down to Perama, before hopping back on the bus to drive to Melidoni and visit the famous cave. The history of this amazing archaeological site goes back thousands of years and it is said to be the mythical home of Talos, the giant bronze protector of Crete. From here we get back on the bus and visit a sandy beach, where you can snorkel, swim or just laze in the sun, before we take you back to your hotel at the end of a perfect day. If at any stage of the day you wish to hop onto the bus for a rest, no problem. We just put the bikes on the trailer and continue. We recommend you bring swimming costumes, money (not credit cards) for coffee breaks and the extras and wear comfortable shoes and clothing.
