The largest of the Dodecane Islands, the lush and mountainous Rhodes is Greeces sunshine capital. From the town of Kiotari on the southeastern coast, theres a killer mountain bike ride (85 km) with over 1,800 m. of vertical! The route starts from the town, climbs up to Asklipo, and then on past the Thari monastery on secluded tracks. Next, ascend the rolling Strongili Mountains but save up energy for the gnarly downhill towards Apolakia.

Another mountain bike ride begins from the town of Ixia, where remote trails head inland into the Butterfly Valley before summitting Mount Psinthos and descending into Afandou (50 km. / 1100 m.). While on the island, also check out the technical trails around Faliraki.

Overall, Strongili Mountains is the 6th most popular mountain bike trail of all 12 mountain biking rides in Greece.
