The Cycling Hellas Team - Cycling & Hiking Vacation in Greece
I started doing sports in 1985 at the age of 12 taking my first steps in athletics, where I remained as an active athlete until 1992 with many wins and distinctions in Local, Regional and National level ( Greek National team).
I had the first contact with cycling on winter of 1999, at the age of 27 when I met my husband, an athlete and champion in cycling. On the summer of 2000, inexperienced and without any previous participation, I participated in the National Road Championship where I got the 9th position. This essentially was the occasion to occupy myself with more zeal and to train harder. Since then I have participated in many races, with an intermediate interruption of 5 years, when I gave birth to my 2 boys. In 2009 I returned, making my first amateur trainings. In 2010 I participated in the National Road Couples Championship where we got first place as a team. Since then I started more intensive training and wins followed in many local, regional and National races in Road and Mountain biking.
