Day 1 Route:

The tour starts from the office (Hype Trails) after an initial check of the bikes and potential bike fittings.

Then, we begin our ride in the area of Skala Potamia parallel to the coastline.

After completing the warm-up we leave the beach behind us and go up a forest road facing the mountain. Soon, we reach the area of Lefki and turn left to continue on the forest road parallel to the ridge of the mountain.

Having completed the first 10 kilometers uphill we start to descend to the traditional village  of Potamia. We cross the village, through its traditional square with the plane trees, and take the traditional route to Mount Ypsario.

Following is an ascent that becomes more and more demanding almost up to the 20th kilometer, and there we leave the uphills. We have already turned to our next destination. The traditional village of Panagia. ‘A picturesque village with stone houses.

There we cross the village from the cobbled streets and pass through the heart of the village with shops and souvenirs. The location is suitable for our coffee break.

After the break, we continue our route with a small uphill . We make a stop for photos at the kiosk in the area of ​​Da Panagia where we have the opportunity to enjoy the view of the largest bay of the island.

We follow the path for our descent to the village of Potamia for the last uphill kilometers. We are moving west and the landscape is mind blowing.

We enter a forest full of pines, age-old plane trees and chestnuts. We complete our route in the forest and we ride to the Skala Potamia and the office to complete our tour.

Day 2 Description:

 

Like the first day, our tour begins from the office.

It starts with an ascent to the village of Panagia and we head to the quarries of the area that extract the famous marble of Thasos. We have gone through our first ascent and the view is more than rewarding.

We continue on a forest road that leads to an abandoned quarry overlooking the beaches of Saliara and Marble beach. We reach the highest point of the tour and we head to Limenas. The landscape we encounter is becoming even better as we now cycle against the background of the north side of the island.

We approach Makriammos through forest roads and paths and we gradually enter Limenas. Following the path that leads to the Acropolis of Thassos, we visit the Ancient Theater,

and finally arrive at the Port of the Capital.

We rode 20 kilometers. It is the ideal time for the established coffee break and lunch. After an easy ride in Limenas on the paved roads, it’s time to head back. On our return ​we follow the forest road over the sea that leads us to the popular beaches of Saliara and Marble Beach. Our weekend tour is coming to an end in a magical landscape above the sea.
