b_100_100_16777215_00_images_stories_gatselos.jpg"The beautiful village of Laista welcomes this  May a unique sporting event «Bike Odyssey». Our village will embrace the organization, will host athletes and friends of mountain biking, and support the effort of organizers and volunteers.
We are honored that the first stage will take place in our village. In turn we will give our best in order to support this special event! "


Chris Gatselos
President Laista Community

A valuable asset to the organization of the race is the support of the locals.

The local communities of the villages that will host stages of Bike Odyssey will support the efforts of the organizers.
“Bike Odyssey” is much more than a great sporting event and a great race ∙ it is an event that will promote the country and the beautiful lands of Pindos within and across borders.

A unique event that aims to contribute in the tourist development of the area. Local communities receive the organization through the greetings of their Presidents, as you can see at the respective stages – stations.

"Megali Kapsi" is the new village-station!

This village  enters the path of Bike Odyssey! "Megali Kapsi" replaces the village of "Grammeni Oksia" at the new route that was announced a few days ago.
So the fourth stage will start from "Agrafa" and  will terminate at Megali Kapsi (Fthiotida area). It is a beautiful village at the foot of Tymfristos, more information for which can be found here: http://bikeodyssey.gr/el/stadia/stadio4.html

"The idea of ​​«Bike Odyssey belongs to two people with unique experience in mountain biking. Makrygiannis Christos and Spagkouros Alcibiades are the people who envisioned «Bike Odyssey» race. Apart from the design, the implementation and preparation of the race organizers will both find themselves at the starting line and taking part in the race. This effort is reinforced by members of B & N Cycling & SY.F.A.GE. who will work to make the race an amazing event. "
