The scenery and the views the greater region of Leonidio offers, got us by surprise. We couldn’t believe that those beautiful roads could be so breathtaking and welcoming. Mountain passes, plateaus and some of the most beautiful coastal roads we have ever cycled in our lives. A constantly changing scenery is quite typical while cycling on the Peloponnese and Leonio region is not an exception to this wonderful rule. But in this case, the views we experienced and the thrill we felt, had no comparison with any of our trips before. We let our pictures to show you how great our riding was.
During our cycling trips in the Peloponnese, we had the chance to visit the greater region of Leonidio quite frequently. Our visits however, were brief, mainly a part of the multistages cycling trip (C2C in the Peloponnese), which only allowed us limited time to explore in detail this part of the Peloponnese.
Therefore, we took the initiative to allocate one month to try to find everything about this hidden cycling treasure. We stayed in Leonidio for almost a month (mid Nov – mid Dec 2019), something that made us discover every layer of cycling and culture in the area around it.
We have seen and experienced many remarkable things. We are excited to share all of them with you.

Leonidio is not flat.Cycling out of the valley, where the town of Leonidio is located, would require from the cyclists to put at least of a 30 – 40 mins effort to climb a 500m uphill road. The usage of an ebike is a great option, that will allow you to enjoy exploring the region while being within your comfort zone.
We have visited all the restaurants in the area of Leonidio and we share what we found out to be the best options. There is no advertisement or benefit of any kind, other than cyclists enjoying their meals. From fresh fish and local recipes to great pizza and pasta options to load you with carbs. Let us know your input.
