Ferry Cyprus - Greece

Anyone know if there is a service running ? I've looked at Girmaldi but it takes several days....

Via Turkey isnt really an option as I'll be short of time..

Is Salamis running ?

Kindest regards
Matt

Hi Matt, are you going to drive your bike back instead of shipping then?

Plan A. is to ship it back but at a cost of €1000 - €450 being for the create !! and as I’m there on holiday I don’t have the facilities to build a create. The shipping company has gone a little quiet, I hope its because of holidays or technical troubles not that they no longer want to help !!
Plan B. fly out in August / September and ride it back – so ideally if I did this I would want to spend as much time in Greece as I drove through on my way down…


Do you fancy riding it home ?

Cheers
Matt

I can think of worse things to do then riding a nice Africa Twin from Cyprus to Belgium...

Any news on ferries between Cyprus and the continent?

I have 4 (max 5) days off next week, I was planning on a little solo bike trip anyway...

You have my details if you think this is a possiblity..
