How's the Weather? in Cyprus

The SpringMarch to May
Spring is an ideal time to cycle in Cyprus. Temperatures are cool and the sun is usually shining early in Spring. As you make your way into the latter part of the season, temperatures begin to heat up.
The SummerJune to August
Summer cycling in Cyprus must be confined to very early mornings. Temperatures are extremely hot and so it's best to stay off the bike after about 10am.
The AutumnSeptember to November
Temperatures begin to cool off and so cycling in Cyprus at this time of year is very pleasurable. Cool breezes blow off the sea whilst the sun continues to shine.
The WinterDecember to February
This period is winter for Cypriots, but its autumnal for anybody not used to year long high temperatures. Winter is the rainiest season but sunshine is plentiful during these months as well and cycling can still be enjoyed very comfortably.

Area InformationFor Cyprus

Sparkling seas, sun drenched hills and the gentle purring of your wheels, there’s a lot to love about cycling in Cyprus. The true beauty though lies in the fact that it hasn’t been discovered in a way that other winter sunshine islands have.  The island offers true wilderness, endless pine tree forests and and views over the glistening Mediterranean. Visit between September and April to discover a beautiful country steeped in culture and classical mythology.
