77 : Halkida - Proskopi (Evia)

Mainland Greece > Greece > Europe
September 20, 2005 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.3

This road is on the island of Evia. From Halkida, which is the principle town, you head north on the road numder 77 towards the town of Psahna. From here you stay on the 77 and the fun starts. It is a very technical road with bends every 100/200m for about 22 miles. The road winds its way through mountains and forests. Generally the road surface is very good, although there are a couple of places where it is a bit dodgy. The road can get a bit busy in the summer but is a favourite with bikers. About two miles after you pass through Proskopi there is a cafe where many bikers stop.

Dasoktima Tatoiou : Marvelous forest route (skipping E75)

Mainland Greece > Greece > Europe
July 19, 2014 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.5

North of Athens. A curved mountain road passing through an amazing forest scenery.

Road leading uphill and downhill. Not the longest, or hardest climb, but it's enjoyable with some nice hairpins.

Hazards: Narrow two-directions road. In some points it is difficult for two cars to pass going opposite directions without one pulling to the edge and stopping. Motorcycles and bicycles have not the same problem as cars, but their riders must be on high alert for this reason. Also be aware of passing animals (deers, goats, cows, turtles etc.).

Suggested stop-off point: Mpeletsi Lake
