Get Active Rhodes is a TOP activity!

'Road Bike Hire' - Was visiting Rhodes as we have family here, but I fancied a couple of days cycling if I could squeeze it in. Contacted Dave and received very prompt replies, nothing was too much trouble and a 3 day booking was made. Brought my own pedals and shoes from the UK and Dave supplied the rest. Dave dropped the bike off as agreed and pointed me out some decent routes and off I went. Having cycled all over Europe and the UK I have to say Rhodes is pretty much untapped in its potential. Quiet roads, respectful drivers, great weather and some harder climbs than you'd expect. If you fancy a long route - follow the coast and 100-200km is easily achieved, if you fancy hills there's plenty inland. Add the fact that the hill villages are tourist free and have bars - what's not to like? The genesis bike was faultless and Dave obviously knows his stuff, whilst I was doing a 100km route he toured the island clocking 200km! Would love to come back and have more time exploring and I'll definitely use Dave again. 100% recommended.
'MTB Rental' - I had a pleasure to have hired a mountain bike from Dave at getactiverhodes. All booked no problem through email. Excellent communication made everything easy. Dave delivered the bike to my hotel exactly on time. The bike was specific for my height and since I’m into MTB Dave provided first class professional Saracen bike. All with spare tube, repair kit and helmet. Advise on local mountain bike trails and places if interest was detailed. All concluded with bike pick up again exactly on time. Overall I’m extremely happy with the service and can truly recommend this extremely professional service.

About

 About us

Get Active offer road and mountain bike rental on the Greek island of Rhodes. After years of visiting family and friends on the island, in 2016 Dave decided to leave his UK life behind and begin a Greek adventure! Following weeks on end of enjoying road and mountain biking all over Rhodes for many years, Dave’s knowledge of the island and the many routes is extensive.

The road cycling on the island is second to none and there is a huge variety and difficulty of routes on offer. Whether it’s a nice gentle spin down the coastal roads or a more energetic climb up into the hills and gorgeous pine forests – there is plenty on offer! The UCI has recognised the cycling credentials of  Rhodes as they now run the 3 day ‘Tour of Rhodes’ and also a grand fondo.

About Rhodes

Rhodes is the largest and most popular island of the Dodecanese. More importantly it is blessed with more than 300 days of sunshine per year! Rhodes island is mostly famous for the romantic Old Town and the amazing beach resorts.

The Old Town is among the best-preserved Medieval Towns of Europe. With strong walls, an impressive castle, paved paths and elegant stone mansions where you could very easily get lost! A hop around the island will bring you to magnificent beaches, impressive sightseeing and picturesque villages. Just a short 15km journey from Rhodes town you have Ladiko beach or more commonly known as “Anthony Quinn bay”, due to the actor swimming here while filming.

There are also a host of other beaches down the east coast leading all the way south to Lindos. The village consists of whitewashed houses with pebble paved courtyards and narrow alleys. Byzantine, Medieval, Arab and Rhodian architecture has influenced the buildings in Lindos. Further down the coast and you come to Prassonissi, known as a windsurfing paradise for many lovers of this sport. Particularly during the months of July and August, when the north winds called Meltemi are blowing. These coastal roads are just built for cycling on and are nothing short of cycling nirvana!

The islands interior is mountainous, inhabited and covered in pine forests, which consequently offer welcoming shade from the summer sun. It is the roads up to and into these forests that are a joy to cycle! There are also countless small villages to pass through. Most noteworthy are routes inland from the east towards Lardos onto Laerma, with stunning views over the lakes formed by the Gadoura dam.

Rhodes really is the ideal cycling destination and has flights from most European cities from May to October.
