Mahindra vehicles are a valuable asset of the organizing team at the work being done in preparation for the race. Last weekend our team crossed the path of the last three stages from Athanasios Diakos to Gravia, across the mountains Vardousia and intermediate villages Panourgias, Agoriani Kastellia, Kaloskopi, Polydroso, Pavliani, Kastriotissa, Polydroso, Eptalofos. We crossed the snowy slopes and arrived in the most unlikely places with the rugged Mahindra!

There are several cycling races in Greece, but not like the particular one.
 An eight days cycling race, so tough, so cruel and so demanding, does not exist nor in Greece neither in the rest of the world. It was baptized Bike Odyssey, a name inspired from the Odyssey of Homers, because the difficulties and the sufferings for completing this race are similar to those that Odysseus himself passed to return home. It is really important to cross with a bike in eight consecutive days the mountains of Pindos, the biggest   mountain range of Greece with the highest pick at 2,637 meters.
 For all participants of this cycling race deserves in advance a big thumbs up and a wish of good luck.
 

Pindos, the largest mountain range in Greece, will host for first time this year the toughest cycling race: the Bike Odyssey. This cycling race will start on 26th of May from Laista village of Zagorochoria in Ioannina and will end up to Amfikleia of Fthiotida, near the mountain of Parnassos.  

This race will take place for the first time in Greece and aspires to gain many followers around the world. Intermediate mountain villages that the race will pass through are totally 41, while the intermediate stations are: Anthousa at Trikala, Argithea at Karditsa, Agrafa at Karditsa, Megali Kapsi at Fthiotida, Athanasios Diakos or Mousounitsa at Fokida and Gravia at Fokida.


The site is now updated, with new look and paves the way for other changes.
The organizing team is already working on more rapidly and you will be informed on a daily basis for any news.
