A Cycling playground for all cyclists
We unveil our latest planned excursion that will take us on a mesmerizing journey to the enchanting pine-filled shores of Ermioni and the island of Spetses. Ermioni, one of the best-kept secrets among Greek cyclists, boasts seasoned roads leading to its picturesque town, adorned with crystal clear waters, and a quaint marina – a sight that has captured our hearts and we are sure it will yours as well.
Our expedition will then move to the illustrious Spetses, renowned as the crown jewel of the Argosaronic sea, a favored destination among Greeks but also selected by visitors from all around the world for decades. Its strategic position, closely located to the mainland coasts, makes it a desirable escape that immerses one entirely in island life, far from the humdrum of the daily urban routine.
Spetses is renowned for being very bike friendly, with a commutable center for casual riders and a lot to give to veteran cyclists looking for beautiful scenery to cycle around as well. The city streets and roads of the island have a long history of customary races where the main goal is not simply competing to win, but more importantly doing so in vintage, quirky style.
To match this spirit, we have crafted a few routes with options for casual and avid cyclists, leading to Ermioni and coasting around Spetses, for hardcore enthusiasts as well as fans looking to have a more relaxing ride, coupled with our support at any point needed.

Why everything in English?
Πολλά από τα μέλη μας προέρχονται από το εξωτερικό και για λόγους ευγένειας, τιμώντας την Ελληνική Φιλοξενία, αποφασίσαμε να έχουμε σαν επίσημη γλώσσα τα αγγλικά.
Είμαστε όλοι μια παρέα, ας μην αφήσουμε τη γλώσσα να είναι εμπόδιο.
Ευχαριστούμε για την κατανόηση.
