Explore the beautiful island of Samos on two wheels – see more of the island with our biking leader and meet people who share your passion on a Richmond Christian biking holiday

What is Biking Week?

Join our experienced Biking leader and take advantage of our expanding fleet of bikes to access unseen parts of Samos Island! Cycle along the coast, past vineyards and white chapels and up steep mountain roads. Cycling in Samos offers challenges for all cyclists including off-road and road routes.  

On a Christian biking holiday with Richmond, there is something for all abilities, with harder rides usually leaving early in the morning to avoid the heat of the day and gentler rides for late afternoon. The morning rides will have some longer rides, around 20-30km, and some shorter more challenger rides, around 12km. The afternoon rides will follow some gentler routes of around 6-10km.

We have a range of Whyte bikes in different sizes, many of these were brand new in 2019! Most are mountain bikes with front suspension, plus there are some hybrid bikes for those mostly sticking to road cycling but with the option of venturing onto dirt tracks. Please note that we do not have bikes for children.

All our bikes are equipped with high-grade puncture resistant tyres, however, in the unlikely event you do get caught out, they all have repair kits too. Helmets are also provided.

Your Biking Leader 

“I am currently taking some time out of my career to allow God to use the skills He has given me to serve Him in beautiful locations. I am very much looking forward to spending another year with Richmond and leading our lovely guests on some more beautiful bike rides! Don’t be put off by the thought of hours in the saddle, we will have regular stops for refuelling, creation appreciation and perhaps a quick dip in the sea!"
