The event will be held in the afternoon of Thursday, August 31st and we hope to attract as many of our colleagues at EUSIPCO for a unique fun event. You will be able to join the small tour by registering onsite at the registration desk prior to the event.

EUSIPCO Bicycle Marathon is sponsored by KOS Municipality, and Pattakos Bicycles which will offer us hundreds of bicycles for the event. The marathon will start at Kipriotis Village Resort and end at Hippocrates Plane Tree by Kos city harbour covering a distance of 3 kilometres.
We don’t need to be cycling champions to participate, have fun and share with EUSIPCO colleagues this entertaining stroll by the sea. Police will ensure our safety all along the way and at the end of the "race" we will be welcomed by the Deputy Mayor of Kos, Mr. Elias Sifakis. Water and lemonade will be offered and we will encapture the whole tour and arrival at the end with lots of photos and video.

Promoting bicycling for a healthier life style
Exploring the island on a bicycle has become the new active way for many visitors to enjoy their time in Kos.
Nowhere is bicycling more popular than the island of Kos as much of it is fairly flat, especially in the island’s northern coastal plain. Special cycle lanes have been created in Kos Town and between the area of Psalidi where our conference venue lies and along the north coast to the holiday centres of Tingaki and Marmari.

Time: Afternoon
Location: Along the coast, to Kos city centre (distance: 3 km)

This is an event organised by Kos Municipality. Tickets availabe at the registration desk (price to be advised)
