On your bike!

Let’s face facts, there’s no distance in Limassol that cannot be covered by bike and, the hassle of parking spaces is a never ending story.

So why not save on petrol, save the environment and, at the same time, be active by taking a bike? Spin the pedals instead of queuing in rush hour traffic and hunting for parking.

With Cyprus’ weather being an advantage to cyclists for at least 9 months of the year, getting on your bike is a pleasant and, considered a safer, mode of transport.

Interesting to note is that bike riding is pollution-free. Cycling 10 km each way to work would save 1,500 kg of greenhouse gas emissions each year.

Even Cyprus police officers are now on bikes patrolling the most popular beaches this summer!


Nextbike is an international bike sharing network available in Limassol.

“We are currently expanding our existing network of 22 rental stations and 172 bikes, located in and around Limassol for renting,” says Christina Kynigopoulos of Nextbike.

You can rent bikes from a low price with easy payment options in every location of Cyprus, including abroad in all cities where Nextbike’s are located. It’s simple, and only requires a one-time registration with their bike sharing system.

“We also offer bikes for company outings, bonding trips or for special events, along with the services of transport and maintenance,” Kynigopoulos said.

One of the company’s most popular features are the guided bike tours. Locals and tourists alike can enjoy being guided by a trained representative with additional bike-escorts. They possess a wealth of knowledge to share about local Limassol and the best places to see on bike.

Employees on bikes

Nowadays, more and more companies are supplementing their vehicle fleet with business bikes.

It makes sense, and through the Nextbike Business Bike service, companies have the opportunity of offering their employees an alternative way to commute to work, to run errands, to have a leisurely cycle on their break, to clear their head, or as an activity during their free time.

“For added service, we also offer the option to install bike stations at company premises,” Kynigopoulos added.

For instance, if you have employees catching a bus to work, the bike will be the fastest urban form of transport. It is free (no fuel), convenient and, an extra facility that your company can offer staff.

The best part of this service is that companies can promote a healthy way of life to their employees, providing an environmentally-friendly approach to commuting.

With a strong emphasis on global environmental issues, impressively, the company’s environmental and community commitments can now be seen through various catchy slogans on their bikes and terminals such as “Go Green, Ride a Nextbike” and “You Are Too Cool For Your Car”.

In the main, the design of their bikes and terminals generate awareness of the environment and, the company is keen to associate with other companies who support this cause.
