Todays ride was a Bike Trip Cyprus Tour route called behind the Mountains. 52 Miles with 788m climbing taking just under three hours.
|Pefect roads for us Roadies!|
Riding on the Bianchi with it's 10 speed 12-28 cassette I could really feel the difference compard to the Cube with its 11-32 cassette on the climbs.
|A typical road surface here in Northern Cyprus!|
Mercifully the climbs on this route are relativly easy as the tour was designed for those looking for a great morning out on the bike with top class surfaces and almost zero traffic.
This ride isn't flat however, with lots of rolling hills along the coast, a couple of excellent long descents with no switchbacks and some lovely scenery. A bit blowy along the coast, but the tailwinds on the return leg were amazing !
|Totally traffic free roads!|
|Superb safe descents!|
|Take on the return leg, those are the Mountains this tour crosses twice|
|Lots of sheep herds out today, lambing season soon methinks!|
