During summer, avoid cycling during the middle of the day. Begin your journey early, as the morning time is perfect for experiencing the first light of day that paints the sky with a multitude of colours. Carry a small bag with the necessary items. It is important not to carry unnecessary weight. Combine your bike ride with sightseeing. Whether your route takes you through villages or along beaches, plan your route in advance and include a stop at a point of interest midway.

The weather is mostly dry throughout the year, providing ideal conditions for cycling. It is not excessively cold in winter or overly hot in summer. The climate is particularly favourable for cycling from September to December and from March to mid-July, with temperatures ranging from 17-25°C.
