AEGEAN TRAILS – ways into the future
Cycling in the Aegean? Wonderful, mainly unspoilt nature, really hospitable inhabitants and mediterranean flair, everything is already here! Only the trails were missing! Because mountain bikers come wherever a trail is. This can significantly help to extend the season period of an entire region and create many jobs in the hotel and catering industries as well as in the bike sector.
The bike icon Ernesto Hutmacher from Bikehotel Massa Vecchia has detected the great potential of the Aegean and together with Islandhopping has launched 2017 Aegean Trails Project.
Aegean Trails is a supportive, inter-island initiative, which stands for a concept of path construction and maintenance, a uniform system of path signposting and a touristic usability of it.
What started as a vision quickly became a reality: Year after year, enthusiastic mountain bikers from around the world meet up for a week in Greece and together with the locals they revive and maintain a century old network of trails for the ultimate riding experience. Every year we bare witness that trails do not just connect places, but also people! The international team spirit gives the event its unique character and is valued as a highlight each year!
