Imagine a route within the unique “alleys” of Molyvos, beneath the majestic Wisteria, surrounded by colorful gardens and mansions… next to stone fountains and monuments of cultural significance… through the historic market place with its shops, taverns with hanging balconies overlooking the Aegean…from the traditional port up to the Byzantine castle. Now let’s make this a reality… by bike!
All this is included in the 2nd Molivos Urban MTB Race, an event organized by the Municipality of Lesvos, in collaboration with The Molyvos Tourism Association and with the support of Lesvos Ride. On May 24, 2015 everything will be ready for cyclists and spectators to enjoy the major cycling event of the year.
The start commencement of the long-route race will take place at the main street of Molyvos, “Michael Goutou” at 11.00 am.
1) Junior from 15 to 18 years of age
2) Men from 18 to 40 years of age
3) Veterans from 40 years old and up
4) Women for women of all ages
Following the completion of the long-route race and until the announcement of the final results, the category for children from 12 to 15 years of age will race upon a shorter route and finally the category MINI for children up to 11 years of age will take place on an even shorter and safer route.
