Bike tours in Crete

E-bikes are fun, easy to use and brilliant for people who prefer a power boost up the hills. If you have not been cycling for a few months or are not used to covering so many miles in a single day, driving an e-bike is the perfect solution. The e-bike will help to ensure you do not overdo it at any stage of the journey. You will still need to pedal your bike but can gain from having a little bit of assistance whenever you need it. With a rechargeable electric motor to power the booster that is fitted to each one, our ebikes are environmentally friendly as well as great fun to ride. We're excited to recommend three beautiful e-bike tours in the area of Rethymnon, close to Melidoni X Village. These tours are fully guided with the option to self-guide if you prefer
Some tours are also available on trekking bikes
