We love bikes. The truth is that our city is not suitable for cycling, no matter how hard the Athensians try. Steep roads, asphalt potholes, careless and rude car and bus drivers, non existent bike lanes and the traffic frenzines, makes cycling in Athens a risky business.
However, bikers are increasing, bike clubs are having more and more members and although we are not a flat city we do cycle! And it is fun! I see cyclists every single day conquering the streets of Athens and this makes me really happy and optimistic for a car-free future :)
Bike Festival is an annual celebration introducing us to the bike culture that takes place every September in Technopolis. During the 3-day celebration there are many happenings, events, contests and kiosks with sponsors and sellers of various bike stuff.
