SOME ADVICE

  • Start with short trips. Many times when we move by car we underestimate the distance. Choose to start with small rides around the hotel for you can better judge the distance.

  • Remember again. They may have been many years since that summer ... roams the countryside on bikes. Obviously, if you learn how to ride a bike never forget it, but at this point of re-start, it’s good to have a little time to adapt.

  • Either in Athens or in Zagorochoria riding a bike needs increased attention. Do not miss a chance to acknowledge your presence. Bell, light and naturally fluorescent clothing with reflective strips are necessary.

  • Follow the Highway Code. The fact that you move by bike does not make you automatically separate. This is also a mean of transport . Follow the traffic laws without exception whether you are in town either in the village. We don’t want any accidents. After all we only decided to have a ride...

  • We give priority. Prioritize and move always having in mind the alternative escape route from potential event.

  • See the path otherwise; use the bike to see places you can not see by car..

  • Deal with the protection Learn details about the protective equipment, obtain the necessary staff and get informed about their proper use.

  • Attention, at any time you are ready to run a risk.

  • Right lane, OK you're not a slow speed. But think that you move by bike and the otherσ by car. Keep right.

  • The brakes are to press it, keep constant controlled speed even on downhill’s.
