A must-to-ride day's ride

A ride which every cyclist visiting Athens should do! An approx 50 km (~30 miles) long spectacular route of excellent quality asphalt, starting at the edge of the city, crossing the Athens Riviera, towards the imposing ancient temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion. As the distance from the city increases, the ride becomes smoother and the view of the Saronic Gulf to always be a faithful riding companion till it reaches its end at Cape Sounion. The ride is mostly flat with a few challenges along the way. It will only require a few short, but greatly rewarding efforts, to get the rider to the top of those short hills.

Fully adjustable

Whether you are looking for a nice, casual morning ride or an exquisite training session, the nature of this route, enables us to adjust the mileage the way you want it. We can reduce the overall distance to 20- 25 km (~12.5 miles) or extent that to 90 km(~60 miles), or more. Let us know what suits you best, and our agents will help you design a perfect day.
