Cycle into nature alongside the dry bedded river of Chalandras, spin through the arable fields with volcanic domes and mini mountains either side. This 15K guided cycle ride will lead to the beautiful ravine in the foothills above Eressos. Here we will climb up to the stunning Moni Pithariou Monastery dating back to medieval times situated in a small ravine outside of Eressos overlooking a new formed lake due to a dam crossing the ravine. This Byzantine Monastery hosts an extensive range of icons, hagiographies and ecclesiastical objects. Moni Pithiarou - or Pithiarou Monastery is dedicated to the Archangels. It's not known exactly when it was founded, but historical records suggest sometime around the early to mid 1500s. The grounds and buildings have undergone something of a renaissance in recent years, and it's become a fascinating corner of the island, with a large lake, productive olive groves and its fine collection of religious relics. It's a peaceful, contemplative spot and a "must see". We will then take a casual ride back down the river. This morning's ride is to exercise our lungs and explore beyond the village of Skala.
