Seaside biking opportunities abound in the country, and there are many bike-friendly towns that even Athenians don’t know about. Also, the hiking paths and old village-to-village routes have now found new use with today’s mountain bikes. Some islands are actually best seen by bike, particularly since bikes can go where cars are officially not allowed.
This is an activity that you can do on your own or through one of the biking clubs around the country and its islands. Hat, sunscreen, proper clothing, snacks and lots of water will be needed – and then you’re ready for a biking experience of a lifetime into nature, traditional settlements, local colour and plain adventure in the sunniest part of Europe.
