in September of 1998 (from HRI.org).
An Excerpt from "Sports in in Cyprus"
Because of the mild weather in Cyprus road bicycling and mountain
biking can be enjoyed throughout the year and bicycles are available
for rent in almost every town and seaside resort.
General traffic regulations correspond to those in Europe, but traffic in
Cyprus moves on the left hand-side of the road, NOT ON THE RIGHT. International
road traffic signs are placed along roads and highways. Cyclists are advised
to avoid cycling along the main roads at weekends, especially in the summer
when traffic is very heavy.
If possible, cyclists, should also avoid riding due west in the late afternoon,
as the glare of the setting sun can be unpleasant and potentially dangerous.
Sunglasses and sunhat, at all hours of the day, during the summer months,
are most advisable (from Kypros.org).
Introduction to Cycling in Cyprus
An introduction to road cycling and mountain biking in Cyprus,
from the Thalassa Tour Company Web site. I am linking to
this page because it has a little information about road cycling
distances and conditions in Cyprus, and that information might
also be of interest to skaters.
An Easy Cycling Tour in Cyprus
This tour company Web site has some hints about what
it might be like to skate in on the roads in some parts of Cyprus.
It describes their easy-level family tour as being on
"quiet asphalt roads, with slight ascents and lots of downhill sections".
