AEGEAN TRAILS BLOG
In April 2019, a team of international MTB enthusiasts got amongst the local MTB scene in Greece to build trails for a week in the beautiful Aegean. Thessaloniki was the destination of choice by the Aegean Trails team: it is the second biggest city in Greece and hosts a very proactive and supportive MTB community and the outskirts of the city offer a great foundation of trails which can be expanded into an attractive trail network.
Why are trails so essential for a new bike region? The answer is simple: no dig – no ride! Without trail construction and care, no MTB destination can arise, because bikers only go there, where trail fun at its best is guaranteed.
Greece – A place for exciting bike vacations? The Aegean is really a “blessed place”. Wonderful, mainly unspoilt nature, really hospitable inhabitants and mediterranean flair, everything is here! But are there any trails, that make it worth to come along for a bike vacation?
