Where to meet new people and make new friends in the Nicosia area?

We have recently re-located to Cyprus and are currently living and working just south of Nicosia.

We are settling in well and have one or two new Cypriot work-friends but are finding it hard to meet other like minded 'non-cypriots'.
Unlike Paphos, Larnaca and Limassol, there doesn't seem to be a non-cypriot group/community in the area around Nicosia that meets up regularly to socialise and share common interests like walking, cycling etc.
Can anyone help with advice or suggestions? We are happy to travel.

We look forward to hearing from you

Thank you

Gill and David

meeting new friends
by: Mariem Ikram

Hello to everyone,
I'm a muslim Latvian girl and searching for friends in Nicosia. In summer I'm going to go there for studying.I'm not searching anyone for serious relations/dating, as I have a groom. Possible if there is any student from Latvia, I would like to meet you.
Anyway, if you are interested - write me on e-mail: mawkin2@inbox.lv

Make friends in Nicosia
by: Helen

I'm not familiar with any groups in Nicosia but as you seem to be keen cyclists/walkers why not:

1 Contact the Cyprus cycling federation (info@mtbcyprus.com). They do plenty of cycling events in Nicosia and are also organising a fun mountain sports event on 4th/5th July in Troodos (Platres)

2 Post on one of the Cyprus expat forums (just Google them) to find people in your area.
