Kos Island has over the years become a synonym to biking. A signature mark of summer’s coming, thousands of visitors touring the mostly flat island on a bicycle. However the prevalence of the bicycle does not imply insufficiency in public transportation, with buses, taxies and rental services connecting the most remote corners of the island to the town.
