    Afternoon ride with brother Thanasis to one of the most beautiful villages of the prefecture of Trikala Polythea. Travel from Trikala-Kalambaka-Diava-Kastania-Amarantos-Aspropotamos-Polithea.

    Many options for coffee and food while it is advisable to be equipped with gasoline. From there you can continue to Desi-Pirra-Neraidochori-Pertouli-Elati-Pili and there are many intermediate destinations and routes.
