This September, we voted for cycling!

The weekend 18-20 September 2015, will be remembered by the citizens of Athens more for the 6th Athens Bike Festival and less for the general elections. The people filled all spaces in Technopolis for the sixth consecutive year and proved that cycling has many, many friends...

The big celebration of cycling included this year many surprises for the visitors of Technopolis. This year the most important was to get people on a bike – to test a model, to discover new technologies, to try their abilities, to collect money for charity, to explore the new metropolitan cycling path of Athens, to attempt a climb on Hymettus mountain, to remember in the end how happy one can be on bicycle!

The highlights of this year’s festival? The dynamic and charming presence of ladies on bikes who came for the Skirt Ride, the incredible jumps of the German Dirt Riders, the competition in the MTB Fun Park among the fans of mountain bikes, the smiling faces at the Hellenic Post stand who became stamps, the kids who painted countless times the special track with their bikes, the specialists who kept their balance for endless time at Lucozade’s stand, the people who appeared for the triathlon workshop, the charm of the past at the vintage bicycles exhibition, the awe for Shimano’s new technologies – the bikes! So many bikes from the largest cycling companies in Greece...

We would like to thank everyone who came to the 6th Athens Bike Festival and made it unforgettable!

See you next year at the 7th Athens Bike Festival, 16-18 September 2016!
