The Kythira Mountain Bike (MTB) Challenge will be held on 1st April 2023 with starting point and finishing line in the village of Potamos.
Organized by the Kytherian Foundation for Culture & Development in collaboration with the Hellenic Cycling Federation and made possible with the support of volunteers, the Kythira Mountain Bike Challenge includes the 74km Kythera Challenge for elite and master riders and two shorter courses: the 33km Kythera X-Pert and 19km Kythera Fun.
All races start at 11am on the main square of Potamos village and finish there also. Event organizers said the event will give cyclists a chance to discover the island by bike as well as Kythera’s 182 kilometers of mountain cycling routes, which are being developed by the Kytherian Foundation for Culture & Development as part of efforts to promote the island as an adventure tourism destination.
Among others, the aim is to create an integrated network of individual, inter-connected and circular mountain bike courses for all levels. The routes are also meant to complement to the network of Kythera trails, canyoning and climbing options.
