Bike around Athens – Sunday October 12, 2008

It’s time again to clear the streets of downtown Athens of cars and turn over the roads to bicyles! If you’ve ever imagined yourself zooming past Syntagma Square on two wheels, don’t miss this year’s Bike Around Athens – It’s Good for Your Heart, Sunday October 12, 2008.

The ride starts at Kalimarmaro Stadium, the Old Olympic Stadium, at 10 AM and the route ends at Zappeion, but not before you’ve traversed the city via Vas. Sophias and Leof. Alexandras, (passing around Lykavittos, not over it!), heading past Omonia Square and perhaps Plateia Kotzia, back through Syntagma ending at the Zappeion Gardens, just down the street from where you began.

Don’t have your own set of wheels? No problem! Acropolis Bikes, located right downtown, rents bikes by the hour, the half day and the full day. If by chance you miss this event, they also offer organized bike tours of the historical center. Visit them online at
