Bike Odyssey, a cycling adventure like no other!

The epic mtb race returns on 15.06.2019 for the 7th consecutive year and promises to be more exciting than ever.

Nine days Рnine Stages , 620km and 19.800m of elevation gain in the breathtaking mountains of Pindus await the friends of cycling and sports in general  for a once in a lifetime cycling experience. From the village of Smixi (Grevena) to the beautiful city of Nafpaktos, this race will be a real life cycling odyssey.

Bike Odyssey is the most demanding mtb race in Greece, and one of the most harsh mtb events worldwide. At the same time, it is the longest race in the world, as there is no other 9-days Mountain Bike event, aside for Bike Odyssey.

This year, Bike Odyssey proceeds to the next step, as there will not only be participants for the Open categories, but also UCI registered professional athletes, as, for the first time, Bike Odyssey became officially part of the calendar of the International Cycling Federation!

Having left its mark in the cycling community both inside and outside the borders, the most harsh and demanding mtb race returns at June of 2019, promising a once in a lifetime must live experience.
