OUR BIKES & GEAR

OUR BIKES

Our fleet of bicycles for adult sizes consist of road bikes 49” to 60”, hybrid bikes 49” to 58” and electric bikes 50” to 58”.    The road and hybrid bikes are Specialized brand and the e-bikes are Sinus.  Road bikes have thicker treads to prevent flats.  The seats are fairly wide and padded or choose racer style.  If your bike size is not listed, don’t fret, we have access to comparable bicycles.   We do not rent our bicycles; they are part and parcel of the tour package.  Bicycles are included in the cost of every tour, with the exception of electric bikes which are an upgrade for 300 euros for an eight day tour.

For multi-day tours, all riders receive a helmet, water bottles, odometer, large handlebar pouch, road maps, cue sheets and a beautiful CycleGreece jersey with short sleeves and rear pockets.  In addition, self-guided bikers also receive a GPS device Oregon 450 with programmed routes, mobile phone with programmed numbers, hand pump, patch kit and multi-tool.   Rear racks are available on request.  The bikes have regular pedals with toe clips available on request.  Clients may bring clipless pedals and their own pedals and shoes.

ELECTRIC BIKE

 

The Sinus Tria 9 e-bike is a trekking bike designed long distance tours.  It is sturdy, reliable, easily maneuverable and comfortable.  It is a pedelec  which means the motor will not take effect unless it is turned on and you pedal.   The bike weighs 13 kg, 28 lbs but, like all e-bikes, the excess weight is trumped by the power boost.

The five drive modes — Off, Eco, Tour, Sport, Turbo — are easily accessed via the control unit mounted on the handlebars.  The 500 watt li-ion battery permits distances up to 250km, 155 miles at an average speed of 20 km/h on Eco mode.   On a single charge the e-bike covers 90 km, 56 miles.   The Bosch compact charger weighs only 600g, 1.3 lbs and charges in six hours.   See Tria 9 Specs
