Rhodes island offers smooth, traffic-light open roads and guests at Mark Warner’s Levante Beach Resort will be able to take to these roads and enjoy the hills immediately behind the local towns of Afandou and Kalithies with some sharp, punchy climbs and stunning sea views.
From an entry-level aluminium Cannondale Synapse Claris or upgrade to a premium fully carbon-frame Cannondale SuperSix Evo Ultegra, you'll thoroughly enjoy the terrain this island has to offer. You may hanker to explore under your own steam or take a guided tour. If it's the latter, our fantastic cycling guides offer medium to challenging tours, lasting 1 to 5 hours and cover anything from 10 to 90km.
We are happy for our younger guests (13 – 17 years) to join in if they can comfortably fit onto an adult bike and into a helmet, all we ask is that a parent or guardian accompanies them.
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. Our bike teams service, clean and lubicate all bikes (including your own) at the end of each day.
At Levante Beach Resort our aluminium Cannondale Synapse Claris bikes are free to use whilst the carbon Cannondale SuperSix Evo Ultegra bikes are available to rent for a half or full day.
Half day €30
Full day €50
Helmets are mandatory and are provided free of charge. Puncture repair kits, pumps, spare inner tubes and tyre levers are available by request.
*Please note this fleet will be a combination of 2015, 16 and 17 models and not all brand new.

A gentle cycle across relatively flat terrain, this guided tour is suitable for all abilities and offers a great means of local orientation.
After crossing the Loutani river, there is a slight incline. Pass through the town, head out to the headland providing an excellent vista of the coast. Continue along to Tsambika beach and then loop back to the resort.
Course category: Medium
Duration: 2 hours
This tour is physically demanding; a 5km intense climb, the route then contours for several kilometres before sweeping through some very quick downhill bends.
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.
Course category: Challenging
Duration: 4 hours
This beautiful and scenic tour is an intense and physically demanding ride designed for seasoned cyclists with a high standard of fitness.
Start with a steady rise followed by a steep climb that follows the canopy covered switchback road taking the tour to the summit of Profitis Ilias. Riders are rewarded for their efforts with an exhilarating fast descent.
Perhaps you would like to bring your own bike to resort, to ride alone or as part of a guided tour? You can bring your own bike on the plane with you for around £50 (return). Please see here for pricing for each airline.
Classic cage style pedals are provided as standard but you are welcome to bring your own shoes, cleats and pedals.
