MEET THE LOCALS – BUILD & BIKE


Trail Building Week Part 2




Part 2: With spades and rake on new ways


Biking along the most beautiful coastline or through pine forests up to the summit of an island. Contemplating breathtaking views. Joining the varied, isolated and well-kept single trails back to the most beautiful bay of the Aegean Sea. Encountering locals. Diving into the beauties and secrets of a region – it can’t be better. But what if all these trails were missing? Inconceivable! These paths for bikers and hikers, their construction, their upkeep – it is all not given.

The Aegean Sea shows the best conditions to become a true bike paradise. The first steps have already been taken in 2017, for example with the Trail building week in March 2017 on Kos, Leros and Patmos Island. Many new paths have been created, existing paths have been cut free and communication routes have been created. Numerous outdoor fans, MTB lovers, bikers and locals have joined us since then to give our vision more and more shape. With AEGEAN TRAILS, we are building a sustainable road network – that takes time and can only be implemented with a lot of volunteer work.

And we need you for that!
