Guests at Mark Warner’s Phokaia Beach Resort in Turkey, Levante Beach Resort in Rhodes, San Lucianu Beach Resort in Corsica, Perdepera Beach Resort in Sardinia and Lemnos Beach Resort in Lemnos can take to the smooth open roads on one of our extensive fleet of Cannondale road and hybrid bikes. The islands offer a range of great local routes including various climbs where guests can enjoy the fabulous sea-views.
Choose from a guided tour with one of our enthusiastic, experienced team with routes ranging from beginner, intermediate to challenging, which will last 1 to 5 hours and cover 30–90km. Or go it alone and explore what the islands have to offer - maps will be provided. Our resorts have the perfect ingredients of traffic light roads and challenging hills to host exciting cycling holidays. Open to all abilities, we will ensure you are grouped appropriately and enjoy a programme of tours led by our cycling team.
Combine your passion for cycling with the opportunity to learn or participate in other land and water sports. Our cycling can be enjoyed by solo travellers, friends or families. Everyone has the freedom to enjoy 'their thing' whilst also having quality time together on what is guaranteed to be a truly special holiday.
Younger guests (13 to 17 years) are encouraged to join in if they can comfortably fit on one of our adult road or hybrid bikes and into a helmet. All we ask is that they are accompanied by a parent or guardian.
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 and includes:
This is a hybrid that combines the qualities of a road bike and a mountain bike and is ideally suited for exploring the predominantly tarmac surfaces that surround this resort.
A basic entry level road bike. FREE of charge
This full carbon road bike featuring the Shimano Ultegra groupset can be rented for half a day for €30 or €50 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.
We have a fleet of Cannondale bikes in resort for you to choose from or alternatively for keen cyclists you can simply bring your own bike to resort.
Helmets are mandatory and are provided free of charge, and puncture repair kits, pumps, spare inner tubes and tyre levers are 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 always on hand to assist and offer advice. We also provide maps and detailed itineraries each day and water bottle are available for purchase.
For keen cyclists that would like to bring their own bike on our British Airways charter flight, please book early as places are limited to 10 bikes and preference is given on a first-come, first-served basis. Your bikes can be stored in our bike shed during your stay.
We recommend you bring your own bib shorts, jerseys and rain cape (if necessary).
