2-day e-bike tour in Volakas, Drama

On November 20 and 21st, 2021 we were in Volakas, Drama and the wider area to conduct a 2-day e-bike tour in the specific area.

It included the cycling tour with e-bikes, the use of paths of the Granitis Trails organization and the tour around the lake Lefkogeia where a part of it is used by the organization of mountain running frozen peaks.

On the first day, which was the arrival of the participants, we set a meeting point in the center of the village of Granitis.

There was a technical briefing on our part and from the Kalifitos Trail Park that participated as a tour guide. After completing the technical information and the necessary inspection of the equipment, we started our cycling adventure of the 1st day.

The start consisted of a gentle uphill route on a forest road with the back of the Bulgarian border and direction to Drama. After the first kilometers we traveled the route became more demanding with the ascents reaching 7-8%. Soon we reached the plateau and near the top of the mountain where was the start of the magical path.

On friendly ground we started our descent to the village of Granitis with the path becoming more and more demanding during the descent. The landscape was enchanting as due to the season the leaves from the trees had fallen and their colors were varied.

After our descent there was a short coffee break to replenish forces and we continued our journey. We were guided through the village of Granitis and we continue riding to the Sanatorium of Granitis or Jurecik.

This sanatorium was built in 1939 and the choice of the place was made due to the excellent climate that prevails in the area and the varied vegetation of beeches, pines, firs and walnuts. The reason for its construction was the treatment of the wounded and the reduction of the pandemic of the specific era. Nevertheless, its construction was never completed. After a tour of the sanatorium we headed to Fort Lisse and started our return to the start-finish point. Our route was completed after a total distance of 31 km.

The overnight stay of the 2 days took place in the village of Volakas and specifically in the hotel “Aloni tou Kyr Thanasis”. The hospitality as always amazing.

After we took the minimum time of rest we went down to the restaurant of the hotel where Panagiotis took care of our dinner which was amazing.

Then we sat in the lobby of the hotel where we had free time for discussion and wine tasting of local fine wines and thus ended the first day.

The second day started with breakfast and our departure from the hotel.

We drove a distance of 25 kilometers in a separate landscape with color changes in the vegetation.

We reached the lake of Lefkogeia and started our e-bike riding around the lake.

In an easy and relatively diverse terrain we completed the perimeter of the lake with a total length of 15 km.

The weather was amazing despite the low temperatures.

Finally we decided that we are in good physical condition and we chose to travel another 6 kilometers on the hill southeast of the lake to “take” a wide downhill path to the starting point which was the end point.

Thus was completed a magical 2-day cycling e-mtb on the border of Greece with Bulgaria in the wider area of ​​the Prefecture of Drama.
