Bedrock Gravel Festival

Experience the most undiscovered off-road adventure on the Island of Cyprus this April! Off the bike, relax with traditional Cypriot cuisine and culture. 

Cycling Cyprus

Cyprus has an average of 326 sunny days per year with a very mild winter and fantastic spring and autumn. In April the weather in Cyprus is warm, with a temperature during daytime between 18 and 25C. The weather in April is perfect for cycling, sightseeing and sunbathing. The 2,000m high Troodos Mountains encompasses beautiful forests and hundreds of kilometres of roads. And best of all, unlike other Mediterranean destinations, Cyprus is still virtually undiscovered by gravel cyclists, the gravel roads are empty and waiting to be explored!

Bedrock Gravel Festival

The 3rd edition of the Bedrock Gravel Festival is a week-long adventure both on and off the bike with festival packages for riders and non-riders who want to enjoy some traditional culture, relaxation and sightseeing.

Cyprus is an undiscovered gravel wonderland just waiting for bold adventurous riders to be immersed in nature and get out of their comfort zone. Activate Cyprus understand and appreciate what true gravel riding is about, they know the island intimately, and will leave you speechless with their vast knowledge of pedalling in remote, off-the-beaten-path pure gravel whilst enjoying the amazing scenery. The expert guided rides include climbing the Troodos mountain range, onto the west side of the island where dense green forests meet the deep blue waters of the Mediterranean, highlighting the undiscovered beauty of Cyprus.

The festival offers a blend of great rides and local gastronomy, wine making, cheese farms and orchards loaded with fresh fruits calling you to taste them. Of course it goes without saying that no gravel adventure is complete without the after-party including; good specialty coffee, a rare brew, trying new food, talking bikes, pump tracks, music and barbeques. This curated week of sublime gravel riding includes immersing yourself in the Cypriot way of living where simplicity is a virtue. Indulge in the most delicious traditional meals that the island has to offer. Wake up for an early morning Yoga stretch, go ride or learn traditional local skills including Basket Weaving, Halloumi and Koupepia making and a Cooking School. Spend a day in Limassol, enjoy Wine Tasting with local wines. There’ll be a cold beer and a rock garden at the Bike Centre! In the evenings dine in local taverns and at the local fishing village, enjoy a traditional Cypriot party and Meze dinner and wine tasting courtesy of Vasiliko Winery. The week culminates with the Bedrock Gravel Race and Barbecue Party, Award Ceremony and Beer Tasting afterwards.
