Ride the Capital / Family Route

Ride the Capital / Family Route

“Ride the Capital” is organized for the 5th consecutive year by the Nicosia Tourism Board. On Sunday the 1st of December locals and tourists are invited to join us for two cycling rides in Nicosia, promising to offer unique experiences.


Family Route / Sunday 01.12.2019 / 10.00 am – 12.00 pm

The first ride, “Family Route”, has been especially drafted by the Nicosia Tourism Board and The Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia in order to bring out the historical and cultural context of the capital.

“Family Route” begins with a short interactive guided tour of the permanent collections of The Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia, followed by a bicycle guided tour in Nicosia within the walls.

The tour will include 8 stops at cultural and historic landmarks of the capital where a professional tour guide will be providing enlightening information in Greek and English. At each stop, there will be an element of surprise, a replica of an exhibit from the collections of The Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia, intended to link the historical site with the Museum’s permanent collections.

The ride offers the opportunity to people with special needs to participate, by providing them with special bicycles. Bikes will also be provided to participants that do not own a bicycle. Those interested must make their reservations early.
