The Road Safety Institute Panos Mylonas, following the great success of the the 1st Bike Athlos «Athens to Thessalonica» in June 2012, announces the organisation of the 2nd Bike Athlos.
The event will take place during May 2013 in the geographical region of Peloponnese.
The 2nd Bike Athlos is a charity ride event aiming to raise funds for the support and promotion of RSI’s goals. These include the advancement of road safety and traffic education as well as the prevention and reduction of traffic accidents.
The cyclists will kick off in the city Megara on the 23rd of May 2013, ride through Patra, Ancient Olympia, Sparta and will finish in the city of Nafplio on the 26th of May 2013.
The event also aims to promote the cultural heritage of Greece thus it is open to international registrations. Greece, a country with such a great contribution to the world’s culture and civilization, lacks nowdays a civilized road behaviour. It is estimated that more than 5 people lose their life daily.
The combination of a Bike Athlos that promotes a sound road culture together with the promotion of our national cultural heritage constitutes a very important project for increasing the information and consciousness of people and organisations both nationally and internationally.
