The hardest and most challenging Road Cycling race in Cyprus has a name and this is “0-2000“! In this case, the name says it all: where you start from, what to expect and where you finish!
There are many roads that start at sea level and can take you up the top of the Cyprus mountains, the Olympus peak at almost 2000m above sea level. We choose the shortest thus the steepest, most scenic and toughest route to the top!
Starting from 0 meters Above Sea Level and finishing on almost 2000 meters, at the highest peak of Cyprus – Olympus (1952 m), this is the race that time is not the target, the top is! It’s what we say, “Sky is the limit”!!
After 75km of uphill riding, you will conquer the top of the highest mountain in Cyprus!
The race starts in Limassol from the municipal parking in the Germasogia river, near the Atlantica Miramare Hotel, heads towards Kolossi, Kouris Dam, passes through the scenic rural roads of Lofou, Pera Pedi and Platres to finish on the top of Troodos, the Olympus peak.
After the finish, the participants will have the time to relax in Troodos Square before heading back to the starting point by bus (optional)!
