Road Cycling

Road cycling holidays

Led by our experienced team, Mark Warner road cycling holiday tours are designed to offer something for all abilities. We run three grades of tour including easy, medium and challenging, with routes ranging from 10–90 km.

If you’re feeling adventurous, you’re welcome to hit the road on your own and see where it takes you (we’ll make sure you’ve got a good map!) 

We have a fleet of Scott and Cannondale bikes for you to use free of charge, as well as helmets, puncture repair kits, pumps, spare inner tubes and tyre levers. We also have some premium fully carbon-frame road bikes at our Kamari resort that you can rent for a small fee. Super keen cyclists are more than welcome to bring their own bike to the resort. Your teens are welcome to use our bikes too, as long as they are big enough to use the equipment comfortably and are accompanied by an adult. 

If you like to track your rides, we’ve got our own Strava Cycling Club, where you can find more information on our routes, leaderboards and challenges. Why not indulge your competitive streak and find out how you compare against fellow Mark Warner guests?!

Road cycling is available at all of our resorts, but Kamari in Rhodes is the only destination where we currently offer advanced road cycling tours. Kamari, Lemnos and Aeolian Village holidays are our best destinations for road cycling overall.

There are a number of local highlights to explore if you fancy venturing out on your own, like the pretty village of Pefkos to the east or the stunning beach of Paralia Glistra to the west. The village of Lindos is also just a short ride away, with its cobbled streets, pretty white buildings and impressive acropolis.

Tour information

Our fleet 

Entry level road and hybrid bikes are free to use, while the premium fully carbon-frame road bikes can be rented at a small charge. Our fleet varies from resort to resort and includes:

Cannondale Quick 6 (2017)

This is a hybrid that combines the qualities of a road bike and a mountain bike. It is ideal for exploring predominantly tarmac surfaces.

Cannondale Synapse Claris (2017)

A basic, entry level road bike. Guests can use one free of charge. 

Cannondale Supersix Evo Ultegra (2015-2017)

This full carbon road bike—featuring the Shimano Ultegra groupset—can be rented for half a day for €41, or €71 for a full day. If guests wish to use them for a guided tour, they are charged for a half day rental. If the tour is shorter than a half day, then the guest is entitled to use the bike for the remainder of the rental period for private use.


As part of our road cycling holidays, we provide all the equipment you need. We have a fleet of Cannondale bikes in resort for you to choose from. Alternatively, keen cyclists can bring their own bike to the resort—find more info on this below. 

Helmets are mandatory and are provided free of charge. Puncture repair kits, pumps, spare inner tubes and tyre levers are also available. Our bikes are fitted with standard flat or cage type pedals. Guests who cycle regularly are encouraged to bring their own shoes, cleats and pedals with them and our staff will happily fit these onto the bikes. 

Our team of guides are on hand to assist and offer advice. We also provide maps and detailed itineraries each day. However, this may vary in each resort.

Bring your own bike

For cyclists that would like to bring their own bike on our Enter Air charter flights please book directly with our Sales/Aftersales team, please book early as places are limited to 5 bikes. Preference is given on a first-come, first-served basis. On our British Airways charters bikes can be carried, payable as excess luggage at check-in. Please advise the Sales/Aftersales team if you plan to take your own bike so the resort and airline can be advised in advance.

What to bring

We recommend you bring your own water bottle, bib shorts, jerseys and rain cape (if necessary).
