A one-day bike getaway full of action
A pleasant 34-kilometres bike ride on paved and dirt roads, around Mount Samitos and through the wide rural area of Assomathianos Campos valley in north Amari.
The scenic route begins in Meronas and drops southeastward through picturesque villages (Gerakari, Kardaki, Vrysses, Ano Meros and Petrochori), before straightening out in Assomathianos Campos and heading due northwest through Panagia Kera and Gena.
Among the most beautiful moments of the tour is the picnic pause at noon, with a delicious meal made of local products and served in the shadow of multi-centenary olive trees.
