Greece: Cycling - Mountain Biking
The Cradle of Western Civilization
Mountain biking is a popular adventure sports activity in Greece. The mountainous terrain in most parts of the country make for excellent and challenging mountain biking trips in Greece. Popular mountain biking destinations in Greece include Zagoria in Epirus, Lake Plastira in Thessaly, Evrytania in central Greece, parts of Crete and the areas of Archanes and Aghia Irini, to the south of Heraklion. Cycling in the Greek countryside is a wonderful experience and shows you so much of the country which you otherwise would have missed. Cycling excursions are popular in Greece and vary from a day to a week, from flat roads along sea coasts to steep ascents along mountainous trails.
