Sometimes, there is nothing better than getting off the well-worn track and exploring freely on two wheels. Two experienced motorcyclists, Thanassis Mourikis and Polytimi Bouzno share three of their favorite routes in Agrafa, Lesvos and Cape Tainaro, plus tips on preparing for your trip.
Experience the stunning nature of the Evrytania mountains on the way to Agrafa, hidden villages and churches, the contrast of the sea and the mountains in Lesvos while the scent of pine trees fills the air and the surprising sight of a shipwreck in the sea off Gythio, visible from the mountain en route to Cape Tainaro. Zip over the Corinth canal, or reach places that lie so far off the beaten track they’re completely cut off in the winter.
Bikers will tell you that their choice of travel represents freedom and an escape from the restraints of asphalt and routine. Only a motorbike can take you to certain places, both literally and figuratively. A glimpse into their world and you might well start to feel the same way.
