Honestly, this was the best bike trip I’ve done so far. This region offers the best sea to summit rides, but also flatter options. Add these really fine roads, with nearly any traffic. So, no stress while enjoying pure summer vibes.”

our Trips

For the current season we are offering two types of trips with a distinctive difference. Both of our trips are tailor made to suit an intermediate to advance road/gravel cyclist averaging 90klm per day and can be more custom made to suit the needs of your group.

Mani200 is mostly based in Kalamata – a vibrant city with many choices for apres-ride activities – that changes accommodation only once to venture into the Mani coastline. Mani200 is more suitable for cyclists that visit the area first time and are looking for a more holiday vibe.

PG Flagship tour is our extended trip that covers a bigger area of the Peloponnese climaxing in Taygetos mountain and features epic climbs, technical elevations and more elaborate days paired with 4 star hotels and curated culinary dinners.

About us

My name is Agi Kolyvas, I come from a relatively small village outside of Sparta and I spent all of my youth camping, hiking, fishing and living by the sea out of my dad’s T2 Volkswagen van. He was an amateur bee keeper and we moved a lot in the summer to find places where the honey would be good. Peloponnese at that time was incredible, a kind of balkan version of early California vibe without the hustle. Then I lived abroad and did other city things and the place kind of hibernate within me.

I started riding bikes in Peloponnese 18 years ago as a short break with friends. I was instantly inspired and amazed by the riding possibilities that this land is offering. By the next time I was there so many memories came back to me of my childhood spent outdoors and realised that in its essence the place hasn’t changed much, the vibe was still the same. Its still a place full of history and blessed with so many mountains and peaks but also a coastline that is truly a cycling playground. It has remained authentic and picturesque and unlike other places in Europe is not full of six storey costal hotels and other ugly touristy stuff.

Few years back I met Doros in a wedding at Kardamyli and we became friends and started riding together. Pedal Greece was born and and now we are a full service company with the passion of the early days.

“I can’t believe how unprepared I was for the feast of mountainous terrain Greece has to offer. The grandeur of the Taygetos ridge is far beyond my expectations and life itself feels rich here, rich with history, rich with culture, and rich with the smells of tasty cuisine.”
