    I have a friend from Greece, Crete actually. HE lives in a small town near Sitia...I beleive its called Mochlos. Anyways, he isnt there now as hes going to school in North Carolina but Im sure hell be visiting his dad there this summer. I would like to see more Greek cyclist. It seems like such a fantastic place to train.

    dear cyclinsam,
    the peloton have to descover this beautiful mountainous country full of sunshine either for racing (see the tour of Rhodes 2,3 UCI category)or for Winter training. The tour Operators are fall asleep they don't know about cycling.But if you shearch on the web you'll find places and friends with same interests.

    Hi Mataliog - I will be spending some time in Greece in June. Mainly around Lamia and Kamena Vourla in the centre. Are there any good roads there for either road or off road training do you know ?

    Thanks !
