Despite boasting some of the most diverse dirt bike terrain in Europe, Cyprus is little known for it’s riding holidays. Because of its size, it’s easy to navigate your way around the entire island during a week’s stay, climbing mountainsides and then descending over rocky paths all the way down to the coast. It’s recommended that you have some prior experience in dirtbiking before you get underway because of the constantly shifting terrain.
