Our routes are totally safe as we do not cycle on busy streets. We ride only on bike paths, car free zones and low traffic streets. Nevertheless, it is important that all participants know how to ride a bike on public streets and to follow the traffic rules.
Do not worry about your fitness level or your cycling skills. Our route is designed for the average cyclist. We cycle at a leisurely pace, we avoid difficult up-hills and we make plenty of short stops along the way.
Our bike rides are pretty easy, so there is no need to get dressed like a pro. Since the weather in Athens is usually mild and warm, you may put on something light and comfy. In case of rain, we provide rain ponchos for free.
Athens by bike, as a dedicated environmentally friendly company, encourages the use of reusable plastic water bottles. If you have one, you can refill it with tap water in our shop. If not, you can buy table water bottles at our shop.
Yes, we do. Using our high quality e-bikes is a convenient and fun way to explore the city.
Our bike shop is equipped with all the essential facilities for your convenience (tap water, storage room, restroom, free wifi). You can also store your luggage safely at our shop during your tour.
Our scheduled daily tours are in English. However, we do offer private tours in other languages, upon request and according to availability.
The bike tour participant should arrive at the designated starting point at least fifteen (15) minutes before the scheduled starting time for the “check in” procedure. The bike tour will start on time with the participants who are present.
We will pass by and make short stops at the most important sights of Athens city centre, but we will NOT enter any archaeological sites, as this is not feasible in a 3.5 hour tour.
All scheduled bike tours participants are accompanied by a tour leader who supervises the itinerary, ensuring the program is carried out as described on our website and/or agreed in our specific offer. The tour leaders are NOT licensed tour guides explaining the meaning, destination and history of ancient Greece. Of course, our travel agency can provide, upon request, private bike tours with a licenced tour guide.
