Our ride will start in the archaeological site of Delphi at the temple of Athena Pronaia. Very soon we will enter in the heart of the Crisaean field olive grove and will encounter the little chapel of St George with its typically Greek high cypresses.
We will enjoy the unique scenery noticing the silver-green foliage of the olive trees changing colors depending on the time of the day, and admire the naturally carved trunks of hundred-year-old trees. Arriving at Plistos riverbed we will have a stop near a traditional stone fountain in the refreshing shade of a large plane tree. There we can savor a traditional pick nick. If we feel tired we can stop there otherwise we can continue our ride to seaside Itea for 5 more kilometers. The total distance we will ride is 15 or 20 km with 570 m of height difference. We will follow smooth downhill rural roads. This program is suitable for everyone who rides a bike and wish to discover the beauty of the famous ancient olive grove.
