GIRO tou RHODES, 17-23 June 2019

The GtR is the idea of an Aussie guy named Emmanuel (or Manoli in Rhodes), who comes from Greek parents that immigrated with their families to Australia (when they were kids) in the 60’s, and whose father comes from a village called Malona in central Rhodes. 

Now he wants to share it with anyone else who loves an active lifestyle, stunning natural landscapes, historic architecture, azure coastlines, and legendary Greek hospitality.

Having cycled solo around the island in 2015, it became abundantly clear that this was a touring “hidden-gem”, and since then, he’s returned with other cycling companions to share the experience, and “road-test” the tour. 

He, and his supporters are now proud to deliver the GtR, and share a fun-filled week of road cycling mixed with traditional Greek island holiday getaway with you.

Rhodes’ miniature horse, or Rhodian Pony, is an endangered horse species found on the island of Rhodes in Greece. Efforts to save the breed began in 2001 by the "Phaethon" association, which succeeded in collecting and stabling the little horses, ensuring their survival, while sensitizing the local community to their plight. Though they are also known as Rhodian ponies they do not have typical pony traits, apart from their small size.

The Greek islands bask under endless sunshine from April to the end of October. And arguably the best of the weather is in the Dodecanese chain, 260 miles south-east of Athens and within a Zorba’s dance-step of Turkey. Dodeca means 12 in Greek, but in fact there are 16 islands here, the best-known being Rhodes and Kos. With such long summers, there’s plenty of time to plonk yourself down on a sun lounger on a Dodecanese beach.
