Full description
The starting point of the tour is Ammoudara, located at the northern coast of Heraklion, and its destination lies in the south. After three kilometres the group leaves the urban fabric behind and passes close to the University of Crete and the University Research Centre. After that follows an uphill route through vineyards and olive groves and after 12 kilometres the village of Stavrakia is reached. Two kilometres after this village is time to enjoy a break in an olive grove. From this point the views in all directions are amazing and the group can admire the mountains Juktas and Psiloritis at the same time. After 3 kilometers of uphill is reached the highest point of the route which is 470 meters altitude in the village of Agios Myron which is 17 kilometers from Heraklion. Here is the skete of Saint Myron with the miraculous holy water, who lived in the 4th century AD and was the first bishop of Crete. After the village of Agios Myron the tour becomes much easier continuing downhill to the north and crossing 3 more villages: Pentamodi, Petrokefalo and Voutes. The return is much easier, because it is almost entirely downhill. The route is 34 km in total and anyone who knows how to ride a bike can participate. The net cycling time is about 2 hours and the altitude difference of the route is 590 meters.
