Solea Cycling Route
This 83-km route leads cyclists from the suburbs of Nicosia to the Adelphi Forest and beyond the church of Panagia Asinou.
The cycling route, after the village of Agia Marina, passes through the village of Agios Georgios and after the Kapouras Excursion Area and the villages of Kannavia and Spilia. There is a dirt road at the entrance of the village of Spilia – to the right – leading to Asinou and the area where the anti-colonial movement of EOKA was more active. The dirt road moves north into the Adelphi Forest for 23 km and leads to the Byzantine Church of Panagia Asinou or Panagia Forviotissa. An alternative route to Asinou is the 9 km long forest road just after the Kapoura Excursion Area to the west.
