From Mt Olympus to the beachside

The spectacular views of Olympus summit with its glaciers are just one (1) hour of cycling away from the beachside. Longer loops, can get the cyclists reach to refreshing long beaches. Where else in the world, cycling can get so excited?

Our cycling days there

Discovering that place was a result of those mysterious ways life itself imposes, of which we have no control. It was just during a light talk with one of our fellow cyclists, Christos, when he asked us to examine whether the routes is his "playground" could offer cyclists strong experiences.

The outcome was truly a blast. Gravel roads intermingled with perfect tarmac ones, all in a perfect equilibrium. Here, there are a lot of options in terms of mileage and elevation, making Petra Olympus a suitable cycling destination for every type of cyclist.

What really made our mind dreaming for days, was the true, untouched nature and its strong smells. Think no more and just visit the region; cycling rarely can get better that this.
