The cycling culture in Greece is not that developed but there are so many great places to ride all the year, close to the big cities, at the islands near the sea, or high at the mountains.

Nice and easy with my 34-32 set up. 32 rear pizza plate cog obviously gave a slower ascent than my 27 and 29 set ups from previous occasions - but ohh so nice!

Did the Mortirolo a few years back. Did it with a compact and 12/29. Cant possibly say the words “nice and easy” were anywhere near all the 4 letter words I was screaming while trying to cry and breathe at the same timeImageImageImageImageImage
