Cycling around Vlasti
Last year I went for its music festival. This year I went for its natural beauty.
Vlasti is located on the northern side of Mt. Askio (Siniatsiko)
In the heart of Vlasti there is a meadow
that's grazed by horses and sheep.
Cycling around Vlasti offers the rider, apart from the exercise, some magnificent views.

Neighboring village Sisani
Cycling in altitudes of 1200m. The crisp air offers a unique sense of wellness, which is absent in urban environments.
Cycling around pines
Listening to the sound of the woods
and uncovering the hiding places of turtles.
Back to the village for some rest
and off again in the following morning
with the grace of some arty-looking Jesus & pals.
St Cosmas and St Chrysostomos
past a WWII mine field(!)
and if you choose wise
you join the orgy of nature!
