The Larnaka Demonstrator, strategically named as "CYCLE LARNAKA" mainly aims to promote an alternative mobility option, which is environmentally friendly and minimizes emissions & pollution in the city areas.
Taking advantage of the already existing 3 cultural routes in the city, the Municipality of Larnaka has updated its cycling routes in a way that a local or foreign tourist can easily explore the city with the bicycle, getting a chance to explore the city's vibrant historic and cultural sites.
A virtual guide has been developed (http://www.virtuallarnakaregion.com/Incircle/) which can be used as a valid tour guide, giving the option to the cyclists to select amongst three Thematic Cycling Routes:
• Seafront & Town Centre,
• Archaeology and Museums
• Culture and Nature
The Demonstrator has already commenced its operations, and a big launch event was hosted on June 23rd 2021.
The bicycle stations, which have been installed in the city's surrounding hotels, are expected to improve the connectivity between attractions & will make them more easily accessible, exhibiting clearly how the local team invests in circular tourism & sustainable mobility.
The tourists will be able to pre-book their bicycle tours through an app or the city's tourist website!
