Cycling is by far one of the best modes of transport in environmental, economical, and health terms. It surely provides the freedom to enjoy your rural holiday by giving you access to villages and rural areas that are otherwise difficult to find by car or public transport.
The islands of Malta and Gozo, both relatively small islands, can be easily enjoyed by bicycle. The landscape also offers spectacular views.
What better way to experience the tranquil and serene feeling of the narrow village streets! Cycling through the Maltese narrow countryside lanes between rubble walls makes one really and truly feel in sync with nature. Combine this with stops at historical and cultural places of interest along the route, and you have the best combination of a healthy, sporty and relaxed holiday. Distances between towns and villages are very short, and are reached with little or no effort at all.
The islands of both Malta and Gozo offer unique opportunities to experience a day’s out cycling with a difference. The landscape changes with every twist and turn, cycling through the gentle undulating slopes, often with country views and sea views on both side of the route.
Cycling in the Maltese Islands as a leisurely or sporty activity is on the increase for people of all ages. Shops catering for the needs of the cyclist can be found in main towns, offering rentals and repair service, as well as organised tours for groups.
