Can I bring my own bike?
Nothing compares with riding your own bike, therefore feel free to take it along. All the logistics of your bike case are been taken care of. We will collect it after you assemble the bike and deliver it back to you on your trip's end. You will also be responsible for assembling and disassembling as needed, or we may provide a mechanic (based on availability) for a minimum fee of €200.
What happens in case of a mechanical issue?
For this type of trip, you go unsupported. That means that you treat the bike yours and try to find solutions as you would have done in case you were using your own gear. You may need to rely on local bike shops or find your own shuttle to the next town. Therefore, we recommend this trip style only for those who have extensive experience and are able (plus willing) to deal with any unexpected issue. This is also part of the fun :-)
In case something cannot be overcomed, what can we do?
A severe mechanical issue, bad weather or an accident may result in you, or members of your group, ending your holiday earlier. Do not worry, our shuttle service is always available and we will make everything possible to resolve any situation the soonest. The only thing we will require is to put us on notice immediately, for us to check the shuttle's availability and come to rescue you.
What to pack?
We are going to equip you with tools and spares for your upcoming trip. Furthermore, we can also provide you with panniers that will enable you to get more of your gear with you (not for road bikes).
Can I start / finish the trip at locations other than Athens region.
Yes. Let us know your pick-up / drop-off locations that make more sense for your travel arrangements for our travel specialists to adjust the itinerary accordingly (e.g. shuttle time needed to get to your first destination). The majority of our departures take place from the region of Athens, since the city’s airport is the main point of entry in the country, but not the only one. We provide you with all the flexibility you need to make the most out of your days in Greece, therefore there are no limits on how you should structure your holiday.
Can the weather impact the itinerary?
We will use a Greek expression to describe the importance of the weather conditions. The weather is the Alpha(Α) and the Omega (Ω) when it comes to how the days are structured. When the weather gets rough we may seek alter the day's planning and/or the cycling routes to ensure a great and safe experience for all.
Cancellations due to Covid
In the case of official restrictions, or imposed travel bans, resulting in cancelling your arrival to Greece, the trip is postponed for future dates, anytime within the next 3 years from your original departure. The next trip will have exactly the same terms as the initial one. Note: the new dates should be during the season with the same tourism activity (e.g. if your trip was set for May you may not be able to postpone that for August). In case you decide to cancel, cancellation fees will apply and per our terms and conditions.
Hygiene during the trip, what should I expect?
Sanitizers and alcohol tissues have always been a part of our daily life. In the light of this pandemic we guess that we cannot deviate from that. Masks: we expect the guests to bring their own masks which they can wash and feel comfortable wearing, while our staff can also provide some some in case of shortage.
Fun fact: Two of our drivers, very sweet guys, have a more than a few microbe phobia issues. Even during our early stages as a touring company, they have made sure we adopt a "surgical room" approach when it comes to cleanliness in our vehicles, commonly used spaces and personal hygiene.
