In this winter’s weekend ride, we will explore the historic region of Kynouria . Starting our ride from Athens, we will reach the foothills of Mount Parnonas (Kronos’ Holy Moountain). Following provincial roads of the Eastern side of Parnonas we will ride through picturesque villages towards the Monastery of Elona, one of the most impressive built landmarks of the region.
On our way back on Sunday, we will visit the village Kosmas, known as the “balcony of Kynouria”, and ride the West side of Parnonas towards Tripoli and then use the National road to Athens.
This ride circles the largest mountain of the Peloponnese passing through unique landscapes, stone-built villages, natural springs along the route and also gives us the opportunity to taste local traditional cuisine using the famous “Tsakoniki” eggplant.
