About
The Hub was founded in 2014, as a partnership between friends with a passion for outdoor activities. Over the years we have enjoyed this form of entertainment around the world and decided to promote it upon our return to Crete, due to the unique features of the island. The Hub offers a variety of single-day and multi-day led tours, taking you to special locations within the island, all year round. A range of quality mountain bikes are available for the tours or for rent. We recommend led tours, as the ideal routes for mountain-biking and hikin are predominantly dirt roads and paths, either used by the locals to reach their fields or are ancients paths used by former generations and have not yet been properly mapped. Our goal is to take our guests on an adventure that is fun, non competitive and social with an authentic taste of true Crete. 2020 is here and hub have new e-tours to provide for all level. for more information visit our website.

I did two tours with The Hub, both ebike tours and at the opposite ends of the spectrum. The first was the “2 Gorge Tour” which was with my wife who is not really a cyclist. The ebike makes the hills disappear and we both loved it. It was 100% on Asphalt and very quiet roads with beautiful scenery, and vultures flying above us. The owner, Mathaios, could not have been kinder or more patient.
The second ride was a level 3 full MTB ebike tour on an enduro full sus ebike. I did this tour with an American couple. It was amazing and challenging. Mathaios worked out our ability and took us on the trails he felt we could handle, although even his easiest level 3 trails were not for beginners.
I could not recommend this highly enough. The scenery is breathtakingly beautiful and never mind your ability, he has a tour for you. The bikes are top quality.

I had a fantastic experience with the super cool matthaios, who has detailed knowledge of of mountains and hidden trails which are technical and a lot of fun!!

the mountain bikes are totally fit for purpose and extremely well maintained by George the mechanic who also very has great knowledge of the island and is always happy to point you places of interest should you decide to go cycling solo like I did on a couple of occasions.

I highly recommend seeking out the hub mtb adventure if you're like me and want a day or two away from the pool or beech and fancy a little adventure

Wow, wow, wow, just back from what has to be THE BEST holiday excursion we have ever been on!

We were treated to five hours of cycling 35 miles through the stunning Cretan countryside on ebikes...

BLOODY BRILLIANT! It was the first time we've ever used ebikes and I have to say if you want to see the countryside it's the best way to do it.

Joseph, our tour guide was excellent. He stopped here and there to take fruit from trees and even pick wild asparagus growing underneath the olive trees. So many stories to tell us and all while we were hurtling down the sides of mountains 😄 🤣

A friend of mine & myself booked the „Finding Nemo“ single trail Tour a few days before our holidays started.

Getting in contact with Mathaios (the owner) was super easy . We communicated via WhatsApp.

On the day of the trip he picked us up in front of our hotel. We went to his store to setup the bikes before we started. Bikes are very good in shape. We got Cube Fullys with 140 travel if I remember correctly.
Totally fine for „Nemo“.

After the shuttle to the entry of the trail, we directly started. As promised by Mathaios there are also some uphills included during the transfer from trail to trail ;-) if it’s hot, like it was in our case, take enough water with you.

Trails itself are amazing. A good mixture of flow, loose rocks and steep sections. I would definitely say nothing for beginners, but for all others a lot of fun!

Mathois is always there with Tipps and tricks around the trail. The fact that he shapes most of them by himself makes him the perfect coach!

Thanks again for the great time! Really enjoyed it and will be back ASAP!

Despite having done multiple tours with The MTB Hub, it still surprises me that Mat will always find a new route to spice things up and/or adjust the to his guest abilities and wants. He does have an excellent knowledge of this varied and interesting region.

The Hub's network of trails is extensive and well maintained making it the go to place for single trail MTB in Crete. If you want dirt roads and scenic tours they have that too.

It's next to impossible to find a place renting proper full-suspension enduro bikes in Greece, let alone one that also offers such great tours. The fact that it's located on the best island in Greece is a huge bonus.

The Hub is the go to address when you need a perfect rental bike, super friendly guides for a tour in the beautiful backcountry or just a nice chat with the owner or his extremely nice mechanic. We rented 2 XC bikes for a week. Mine was like brand new, fresh out of the box and my wife's was in really good shape too. We spent the first week exploring the area on our own. In the second week we went on an awesome enduro tour with the owner/guide and a couple of locals. This was the highlight of our vacation. Mathaios (the owner) is really really friendly and provides tips and tricks for the right lines on the sometimes challenging trails. He offers tours for all skill levels. From an easy e-bike sightseeing tour to a technical enduro trail from the tops of the cretan mountains.
We will come back for sure! There a so many trails to discover!

P.S.: Check out the tavern "Zorbas" next to The Hub!

We had two wonderfull E-mountainbike tours with Matheos! Nice to see Crete from a total different side. Matheos choose some really nice, diverse routes, so we could see the nice landscape and the beautifull small Greek villages.

Can't say enough good things about Mathaios and this crew at The Hub! I have ridden with them on two separate visits to Crete now and can't wait for the next time. Mathaios has several routes to choose from and makes every effort to communicate ahead of time so he can recommend the best one for your interests and skillset. His tour company is the best choice for someone looking for true mountain biking in Greece, from intermediate to technical. The route he picked was a great match for my abilities, and additionally he customized it along the way for time and the interests of the group. Bikes were well suited to the rocky terrain and route was scenic and gave you a good sampling of the challenging climbs and fun singletrack downhills around Malia. And of course he included a stop for appetizers and a good cold Greek beer (or Coke). Make no mistake...you probably won't find these trails without a guide, and with his fair prices and good company, there's no reason to waste time route planning and navigating on your own. I had a lot more fun leaving that part to the expert. Looking forward to a return trip and another adventure with The Hub!

I was looking for a day of proper (for me) riding and I found it here on Nail the Trail. I'm used to more climbing, but given the warmer climate, less was welcome. Perhaps some of the other trails would provide more peddling.
Mathaios was an excellent guide, sharing his knowledge of the trails as well as local history and chatting to locals en route.
Bikes were good quality and well maintained, as well as being set up tubeless, which is a must in such rocky terrain.
I highly recommend these guys, and I will be back!

Mathaios, the owner of THE HUB MTB-Adventures took us (5 persons) on the beautiful 4 hour, 3 stages "Finding Nemo"-trail during our holidays in Malia on the impressive island of Crete (with van-transfers). It was a great experience for me (to know where my limits are ;-P) and worth every Euro. Mathaios knew very well my skills in advance (we talked a day before), so I could trust his experience. Therefore my feeling was really relaxed and safe from the beginning, hence I was very respectful about the Cretan trails before. The only thing: I should have taken more energy bars with me. Water and equipment (bike, helmet, protectors and gloves) is supplied by THE HUB. It was a lot of fun with the very sympathic team (Cheers also to George!)

Best Harald
