What an adventurously weekend! After long time, we have decided to go for a two day bicycle touring in Attika region, organised by the oldest bicycle club in Athens “Filoi Podilatou” (Friends of bicycle). The plan was to go to “Chaos” area, a big hole on a mountain, as you can see in the picture. This is located inside the “Sounio National Park”.
The concept was to avoid all the big roads with traffic and reach there from small roads. So, our route was over 95% out of main roads, passing through fields, forests, small villages and farms until we’ve reached the “Sounio National Park”.
The adventure part of the riding was that we have taken this route for the first time and when the Garmin didn’t work properly on remote areas and mountains, we had to improvise. So fuck Garmin, next time let’s take maps.
At the end of the day we were tired, but our eyes were full of great landscape pictures and mountains.
Rain reached us at night, so we had to pack our camp and go find a shelter in the middle of the night, at the village nearby, Ag.Konstantinos. After three hours aprox. we went back and started unpacking again. Last years summer rains are often, so it’s time to invest in waterproof tent.
Until next time keep riding and enjoy these mobile photos.
