Myths & Legends

Ancient Cities & Rich Cultural Elements. A Complete Audax Ride!

25 – 27 of May 2018


The Route

201 km / 2150 m

124 m / 7050 ft


The starting point is the city of Thebes, one of most ancient cities of the antiquity and the place where one of the Hercules’s labors took place. Leaving Thebes, the route becomes hilly and the cyclists climb up the Mt. Ritsona (45 km – 29 miles). From there, all can gaze on the endless blue of the sea, prior descending to Tanagra, the city which joined the rest of the Greeks in the Trojan Campaign. Later on, the route passes by the city of Platea (103 km – 63 miles). A battle of great importance, between the Greeks and Persians, took place here. It was this battle that stopped the Persians from advancing and conquering other cities in the greater, as currently known, European region. Leaving Platea behind, the small, idyllic beach of Saranti (151 km – 93 miles) would be the ideal stop for a short recovery. The last part of the route passes by Thespiae (183 km – 113 miles) the city, of which the citizens joined the Spartans on their Epic Battle in Thermopyles against the Persians. From there, a downhill part signals the completion of this route.
