Together We Will Find Solution

Larnaca shopkeepers in the area of Pallas Square held a protest because they are worried that they will not have access to their stores and ultimately have to shut down for good.

The development of the area will begin in September, the project will cost around €1.2m and will be jointly covered by the government and the municipality.

 It includes widening pavements, illumination, and landscaping, and also upgrading utilities’ networks such as electricity, telephone and water, and the expansion of storm drains. The aim is to improve the traffic flow, and offer more comfort and safety to pedestrians.

Larnaca mayor Andreas Louroujiadis said he understood the concerns of the shopkeepers and would support them as best he could. However he said it had been a major achievement to secure funding for a development project in the current climate, and that in the end it could only help businesses in the area. “Together we will find the best possible solution,” he said.

Road Cycling & Mountainbiking - Cyprus is the place to be!

In the last few years Cyprus has taken off as a destination for cycling enthusiasts both as a place to enjoy the sport and as a means to explore the island. The island has perfect weather for cycling, especially in the months between October and April, when temperatures range between 15°C and 25°C, while annual rainfall is also quite low in comparison to European countries. What's more, unlike other European or Mediterranean countries, the strong headwinds that are a bane to cyclists, here are rare.
Cyprus is a heaven not only for active cyclists and cycling tourists. In recent years many top athletes have chosen Cyprus for their winter training.
Renown riders like World Champion and Gold Olympic Medalist Jaroslav Kulhavy who always starts its racing season in Cyprus stated " 'I started coming to Cyprus years ago. Cyprus is perfect in this time of the season. Good weather, good opportunities for training on the mountain bike and on the road as well.There is less traffic and the people are friendly.'

The island now-days hosts nine annual mountainbike and road cycling events and races for sportive, amateurs and professional riders.
