Enjoy gravel unbound on Sunny Cyprus at the Bedrock GravelFest
For Adventurous riders who cannot resist taking the road less travelled. Come and experience the most undiscovered cycling on Cyprus
The Bedrock GravelFest, April 11-16, 2022 is a week-long adventure both on and off the bike.
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 pedaling in remote, off-the-beaten-path groad whilst enjoying the amazing scenery.
Their 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.
It’s 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. Partying hard with live sets from DJ Joe.
Learn new skills including Pottery, Yoga, Halloumi Making & Basket Weaving and Koupepia and Hummus Making. Dine in local taverns and a local fishing village and enjoy Traditional Cypriot Party and Meze Dinner. There’s also a bike maintenance clinic and trip to Limassol.
The week culminates with a fun 51 mile Gravel Race with an Awards Ceremony, Barbeque Party with Chef Avraamis, Beer Tasting by Pivo Microbreweries and more live music from DJ Joe.

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. Almost every day is sunny with a temperature during daytime between 18 and 25 °C. The weather in April is perfect for sports, sightseeing and sunbathing.
The 2,000m high Troodos Mountains encompasses beautiful forests and hundreds of kilometres of roads.
