Schinias – Naturalism and Birdwatching
Dear fellow cyclists,
We are delighted to announce that we have organized another club ride for this coming Saturday, March 18th. This ride will take us to the biodiverse wetlands of Schinias near Marathonas, and will focus on the exciting world of birdwatching, which is in line with our team’s nature-loving character.
We will begin our ride near the Greek rowing track and follow the road that leads to the freshwater ecosystem, which is home to a multitude of avian species. During the ride, we will have the unique opportunity to explore local routes, investigate and identify birds as we go, and, of course, ride our bikes with the assistance of our birdwatching guide, Dimitris.
We believe that this experience will be a one-of-a-kind opportunity for everyone looking to escape the urban environment and get to know a natural paradise so close to the city. For those who require it, we will provide E-bikes, and the distance covered will be approximately 25 km, with our guides accompanying us along the way.
Cost: 50 euro / person
What is included
- Snacks along the road
- Vehicle Support
- Shuttle from Athens to Marathon Region
- GPX files for your GPS-unit
- Road / E bike Hire: + 30 euros (please send us your height details in cm)

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.
