Cycling around Korcula advice
December7, 2005 at 9:34 pm #21122
I’m just want to get some advice on cycling around Korcula. We will be going for 2 weeks at the end of august.
Can anyone say something about routes on the island ?

There is no dedicated cycling lines on the Island of Korcula. Nonetheless, as I am cyclist myself, I would still
confim thay cycling on Korcula is quite safe, as there is no a lot of traffic here.
There are various good routes to follow – (hard to choose the best one) – have a look at the maps page : https://www.korculainfo.com/maps/
Most of the roads are asfalted, but there are some non-asfalt roads for more adventurous, perhaps mountbiking, tours.
If you are mountbiker, I would reccommend routes around Lumbarda and Zrnovo, especially roads around Defora ( southern side of Island near Zrnovo) as well as Kneze-Pupnat one.
Otherwise, just stay on main roads, make shure you keep extremly right and beware of parked cars – ready ( as always) to open their doors right into your face, (and then say: sorry, i didn’t see you ) 😉

I have been cycling on Korcula Island last year – the routes are safe and views are great. I am going again this year. 😆December7, 2005 at 9:39 pm #21750
Does any one know if there is possible to rent bicycle in Korcula Island during July?
ThanksDecember7, 2005 at 9:41 pm #21751
Yes, it is possible!
There are several rant-a-bike places around the island Korcula as well as in Korcula town where you can rent a bike for few hours, a day or week and more.
Check all info at this page

I’ll be coming to Korcula for two weeks from the 16th of August, and want to take my bike, for when I get bored of being inactive. I’m a keen mountain biker, and would prefer to take my own bike, as rental bikes can be basic and in poor repair.
Firstly, what sort of riding can I find? Is there enough rocky, bumpy stuff offroad to justify bringing a full suspension bike, or would I get away with my more general mountain bike?
Are there are local mountain bike clubs who meet regularly, who wouldn’t mind a crazy english guy joining them on a ride or two? Although I can look at a map, local knowledge is always best for finding out where to ride.
Is there lots of thorny vegetation around offroad? Do I need to bring lots of tubes incase of punctures, and are there any local shops which sell bike stuff like inner tubes?
Please reply via the forum, as I don’t seem to be able to create an account on these boards at the moment.

korcula is not as sofisticated regarding cycling as one can expect.
there is no designated cycling lanes or similar, no cycling clubs, no even cycling shops etc… 😳 😥
BUT – there are a lot of good routes to cycle on and off road, so i expect you will have a good time here.
therefore, i suggest you to bring your bike and enjoy various routes ( general local map is on sale around the town). also, bring all necessary repair kits, as there is no a lot of choice here
have a great time!

So how have people got on with mountainbiking in Korcula? Any technical/challenging trails found? What are the rules about riding across land?
I’m thinking of boxing up my Camber and bringing it in July… The island looks stunning and I think it will be a good way to investigate under my own steam.April4, 2012 at 7:42 am #21760
chris, there are numerous public pathways where you can ride moutainbike on the island.
there are no restrictions as long as its is not a private land so yes, you should pack your bike and bring it here 🙂
as july is pretty hot month perhaps you could consider riding in the early mornings or late afternoons and spend the hot part of the day in the shade?November21, 2015 at 11:51 pm #21761

We are a couple travelling from Split to Ston (Peljesac island) via Brac, Hvar,Korcula.
We are interested in getting info. regarding renting a bike from Split and depositing at Ston (or somewhere near town)?
Or do we need to rent a bike separately in each island and deposit there before moving to next island.
