There's nothing better than travelling by bicycle across Malta. The landscape changes with every twist and turn and the warm wind gently cools you.
There are three principal routes for cycling. The first one is in the Northwest of Malta departing from Rabat and passing through Kuncizzjoni, Dingli, Bahrija, Mgarr, Mosta, and Mdina and is approximately 34 kilometres long. It is the easiest and fits for cyclists of any ability. The second route is in the Southwest of Malta and meanders into Buskett, Girgenti, Ghar Lapsi, Qrendi, and Siggiewi. It is 27 kilometres in length and of medium difficulty. The third route is an all-island coastal route across Gozo. This circular route traverses the picturesque Gozitan villages of Ghajnsielem, Xewkija, Sannat, Victoria (Rabat), Kercem, San Lawrenz, Gharb, Zebbug, Xaghra, Nadur, and Qala. The route is suitable to day-travellers and is 42 kilometres in length, and an ideal challenge for more advanced cyclists. As to the season, the best period for cycling in Malta is autumn and spring.
