30 miles of smiles while in Greece
WOW – what an amazing experience while in Greece. All arrangements were set up through email prior to the trip and Manos was very polite and answered all 1,000 questions. We opted for two road bikes and a hired guide to show us around. On the day of the ride, George arrived promptly with our bikes. I never felt pressured to go faster than I was capable. George did a great job of keeping the cars away from us along our route.
I personally am not a roadie or a hill climber by any means, but knew from the views and terrain exactly what I was signing up for. George was willing to go as fast or slow as needed and let us decide the distance of our ride.
We stayed at Daios Cove and rode straight out of the resort along the coast on E75. We ventured out for about 15 miles before turning around and coming back for a total 30 mile ride. I loved this route, but not recommended for the faint of heart. There was a 3 mile constant hill climb (which took me about 42 minutes to climb to the top) before my eyes saw the most lovely café. We stopped for some energy drinks and enjoyed the most spectacular views from all that climbing. The trip down the mountain did not disappoint either as it was fast, furious and fun!
I highly recommend using Manos Skyvalos for your cycling needs. George was extremely nice and I would recommend requesting him as your guide. George is capable of any speed and skill level. Great overall experience. Thank you Manos and George!
