After passing through the town of Kalithies, all of the hard work put in on the initial climb is rewarded with a long and fast asphalt descent and pan flat finale along the promenade of Afandou Bay. A hugely enjoyable tour that includes all aspects of a great road ride and allows our guides to assess everyone's abilities and fitness.

After a tough climb under the shade of a canopy of trees, riders descend down through a series of hairpin bends to the stunning Stegna Beach.
