Cyclae Greece

Cycling in Greece

CycleGreece is your host for exploring Greece’s treasures. Our mission is to introduce you to Greece’s sacred sites and ancient riches so that you, too, will cherish its heroic legacy and regard it as an inspiration for future generations.

This blessed land, a true world heritage site, is one of those celestial places on the planet where mankind once reached up to capture stars. The greatness and monumental creativity of the ancients’ efforts demand eternal recognition — indeed, emulation.

Visiting Greece connects you to its epic history, and this, coupled with the modern Greeks’ contagious enjoy-the-moment lifestyle, explains the foreign traveler’s sense of serenity in Greece.  In a certain sense, you have come home.

Greece as a Cycling Destination
For many years Greece was never known or regarded as a cycling destination. As a visitor, you could rent a bike for a day and pedal around on your own, but multi-day cycling tours in diverse regions of the country were limited, if non-existent. CycleGreece is pioneering the field by offering long distance cycling tours for one to two weeks in all regions of Greece for all abilities of riders.

Greece is ideal for cyclists! It has a terrain suitable for every type of rider.

For the leisurely-inclined, there are plenty of flat roads hugging sparkling sea coasts, as well as moderate hills for casual climbing to reach pristine country villages. For avid cyclists seeking ascents, roughly four-fifths of Greece is mountainous, a continuation of the Alps.

Whatever your pace, a typical day's excursion affords thrilling encounters with one or more of Greece's many countryside treasures, such as, centuries-old olive groves, orange orchards, vineyards, windmills, gorges, kri-kri (wild goats), old stone bridges, caves, Ottoman era mosques, Venetian castles or 2,500 year-old ruins.

Advantage of the Bicycle
The bicycle is the best vehicle to explore Greece because it allows a precious intimacy with this magnificent, sacred land. Slow motion travel enables one-on-one encounters with the natural environment and exceedingly hospitable locals. You will not be surprised to learn that hospitality in Greek (filoxenia) means ''friend of strangers.''

Whether you've had a casual ride or a Herculean work-out, a day of bicycling prompts a feeling of colossal accomplishment. And a day of bicycling in Greece promises ceaseless joys in a land blessed with a perfect climate.
