Bike Odyssey: The Vision


"The conception of ​​"Bike Odyssey" begun with two people, Makrigiannis Christos and Spagouros Alkiviadis, who have a long course with mountain biking. For this vision to come to life, Bike Expert, supervised by Makrigiannis Christos, contributes with the organization of Bike Odyssey and set Spagouros Alkiviadis as a consultant for the completion of the race in the best way possible. Every year, both of them are in front of the starting line of "Bike Odyssey" to welcome and prepare all athletes for this challenging race."
