The stunning coastal landscapes and tranquil rural roads make cycling on Gozo a pleasure. This comprehensive ebook is packed with practical information and advice. It provides detailed maps of cycling routes on Gozo, together with a description of the noteworthy features that lie along each route. This guide also describes the background (historical, cultural and environmental) of the key points of interest to increase your understanding and pleasure. All the suggested cycle routes can be done from Malta by taking an early morning short ferry trip to Gozo and returning in the evening. But, if you can, stay a night or more on Gozo to better understand and enjoy its many natural and man-made attractions.
The book suggests routes that allow you to cycle on (usually) tranquil rural or coastal roads to reach locations of interest to visitors. Allowing time for admiring the sights each cycle route represents a day’s adventure. The routes also encourage you to stop at locations from where short walks can bring you to impressive features that cannot be directly reached by bike. The routes are mostly along level roads though there are a number of inclines that some might find a little challenging. As the highest point in Gozo is just 195 m above sea level the uphill sections are relatively modest by international standards.
