This tour is an easy ride, suitable for anyone enjoying outdoor activities and some pedaling. The tour involves predominantly cycling on flat grounds and descents, both off-road and on low traffic roads. A long distance through the biggest mountains of Lasithi reaching until the North coast is covered, giving you the chance to experience plenty of Crete through the freedom of riding a bike. We start the tour at the entrance of the Lasithi plateau and ride on flat grounds crossing the biggest plateau of Crete. Lasithi Plateau lays below Spathi (Sword), the highest peak of the Lasithi region (2148m) and is the third highest mountain of Crete. We ride mainly on small dirt and asphalt roads going through several villages and fertile agricultural fields. The plateau is also known as the garden of Crete due to the amount of goods being cultivated here and is also rich in wild flora, walnut, pear, apple and chestnut trees. Once we reach the village of Psychro at the South side of the plateau, those who wish can visit the Plateau's most famous attraction, the cave of the mythical god Zeus. At the village of Kaminaki and have our mid-tour coffee break, getting a glimpse of Cretan rural life. We continue the tour towards the North coast of the island. A long descent (20km) will take us past the monastery of Kera and then the village of Krasi, with its historic perennial platanous tree and fresh water springs from the Diktian mountain range. From Krasi, we enjoy a last panoramic view of the busy Northern coastline and let gravity take us down to our destination, the ancient Minoan palace of Malia.
