E-biking in Naxos, Greece


Cycling across the hilly interior of Naxos can be hard work on a push bike, particularly when the wind strikes up. But exploring this sizeable and scenic island on an e-bike is a lot of fun, particularly if you find yourself on the many roads with virtually no traffic. The winding Epar Od Naxou-Chalkiou road from Halki  to Naxos Town is particularly empty and exhilarating, as you swoop through the craggy countryside.  You can hire e-bikes from several places in and around Naxos town, but Aurelia Bikes is both friendly and informative. And they have an arrangement with a restaurant in Filoti that enables you to recharge your bike batteries while you have lunch.
