You will visit:
- The route starts off heading downhill and passes through the Malona orange grove. A stop at the village’s main church gives cyclists the chance to briefly stroll around the village and recover a little.
- Then we continue by cycling next to the course of the Gadoura River heading towards the source of the river and the small, but impressive, Gadoura falls. The river is also home to the microscopic “Gizani” fish (Ladigesocypris ghigii) that manages to survive the winter’s torrential waters by swimming upstream, and the summer’s drought by taking refuge in pools with very little water. It’s a rightly known as the island’s survival champion.
- Leaving the source of the river behind, we pass through a forest of olive trees and head towards the vineyards that surround the village of Masari that produces some of the best wine Rhodes has to offer.
- Heading towards Gadoura bridge built by the Italians in the 1930s, we have the chance to explore some old battlements from the 2nd World War. Our cyclists can rest for a short time next to the old bridge before continuing along the dried out river bed heading towards to the beach.
- This route also takes us past the runway of an old airport. The beach is the ideal place to finish the ride, enjoy a refreshing dip in the deep blue waters of the sea.
