At Cycling Kefalonia we organise bespoke and fixed itinerary cycling trips around Kefalonia. Our trips are designed for cyclists who want††to challenge themselves, and also have an amazing experience in a beautiful part of the world. Excellent roads, minimal traffic, and spectacular terrain make Kefalonia the ideal playground for cyclists. Our passion for cycling is only matched by our love of this incredible island. Our trips are fully supported and guided and all inclusive. Everything is taken care of from the moment our clients arrive.

How the minimum criteria of the responsible travel standard was met...

Economic responsibility

For airport transfers we use a local person. For bike hire, bike repairs and bike assembly on arrival we use a local mechanic. We use local people unless there is no other alternative.
We only use accommodation and eat at restaurants that are family owned and run by the Kefalonian proprietor. Any food for snacks or lunches are sourced at local stores, and all fresh food is grown locally.
We try to visit places off the beaten track as much as possible. Itís not only more interesting but helps support more people.

Environmental responsibility

Cycling by its very nature is low carbon and environmentally friendly. But we do everything to minimise the impact of our activities. In our office we operate virtually paper free. On the island we cut vehicle journeys to a minimum. Food and meals are locally produced from local ingredients reducing their carbon footprint. We donít use any bottled water unless in an emergency. We collect all our rubbish and recycle everything we can. We make sure cyclists donít throw anything away. The hotels we say in collect rainwater for use in bathrooms, automatically turn off the power when rooms are unoccupied, and most of the electricity on the island is solar or wind powered. We donít engage in activities that damage the environment and ask our clients to be responsible in this regard

Social responsibility

This is a small group tour with a maximum of 20 participants, and we cycle in groups of no more than 10. We therefore have a low impact on the environment and communities we visit, and this ensures we do not disrupt or disturb local people. The small number also allows us to stay and eat in unique, family run establishments, and to give a personal individual service.
We have a very good relationship with the local people. They are genuinely happy to see cyclists, and the drivers are very considerate and careful. We aim to keep it that way.†We instruct clients to be respectful and we'll†keep†this place a cycling haven. We encourage cyclists not to take risks, not to go speeding through†villages or past junctions. And if they see pedestrians or animals to give them†plenty of space and be courteous at all times.
We aim to give clients an insight into this unique place, its culture, history, landscape and natural world, and encourage them to get to know the local people. We hope that they too will understand how special Kefalonia is, and then return. We are as passionate about Greece and the Greek people as we are about cycling. And attempt to put this across loud and clear in everything we do.
