Bicycle Touring in Corinthia
Bicycle touring is a leisurely form of cycling, with the exclusive aim of pleasure and adventure, rather than sport, commuting, or exercise.
Corinthia, with its long coastline and high mountains offers endless opportunities for both pleasure and adventure, as well as for inspiring combinations of both. The seaside roads border the beach, so that cyclists can get off their bike at any time and refresh themselves in the clear blue waters of the Gulf of Corinth. The mountain roads are perfect for amazing downhill rides, which pass through picturesque villages and alongside forests where cyclists can stop to relax under the shade of the trees. Mountain planes, which produce tasty and nutritious PDO legumes, can be crisscrossed aimlessly, just for the pleasure of their aesthetic beauty.
Endless days of sunshine and fair weather are among the advantages of Corinthia as a bicycle touring destination. The mild Mediterranean weather of the seaside allows for bicycle tours practically all year round, while the mountains can be enjoyed at least 10 months per year, if not more.
In addition to varied landscape and different levels of difficulty, touring cyclists will also find in Corinthia those elements of culture that make Greece stand out when it comes to traveling: hospitable local hosts and a succulent cuisine. Especially when it comes to gastronomy, touring cyclists will be in for many treats, as Corinthia produces a centuries-old variety of wine-making grape, Agiorghitiko in numerous winehouses which can be easily visited on a bike; it also produces the famous “Corinthian raisin”, a superfood for active people such as cyclists. Feta cheese made from the same sheep that cyclists will meet while cycling on the mountain roads of Corinthia, aromatic herbs such as the ones they will smell along their route, olives and olive oil from the olive groves that dot the hillsides, fresh fish from the Gulf of Corinth and local meat, mostly charcoal-grilled, will make the meals they will enjoy as they tour the area. Last but not least, local hosts, untouched by mass tourism since Corinthia is an authentic off-the-beaten track destination, offer real heartfelt Greek hospitality. The mindfull spirit of ancient philosophers blends with the practical mind and open heart of contemporary farmers, fishermen and shepherds to create wonderful local communities, where the love for life reigns supreme and begs to be transmitted to all visitors.
