A FEW WORDS

We, at whynot, organize thematical cycling tour mainly in the province of Argolis.   Our main objective is to see and do different things on a daily bases while training.  We visit archeological monuments, winery fields, monasteries, mountains and so on.  In general, tours are aimed at cyclists who like a challenge but they are not too long and generally not very steep which should allow them time for relaxation in the afternoon.  It should be noted however that few rides are long, tough and the tour is only suitable for riders who are used to it. In that case, the group can split in two following and easier way back.
There are four different tour packages (1-day,3-days,  5-days and 7-days) and they are organized by day (Monday, Tuesday, etc).  Someone can book 1, 3, 5 or 7 days tour by only choosing the starting date.  The rest are automatically defined by the following days and the number of days someone wishes.  For example if someone would like to have a three days tour starting on a Tuesday, the three days package will include the tours of Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Cyclists are provided with detailed route notes and for those with Garmins we also have GPX files of the route (or you can hire a device from us with the route loaded on). Usually a tour guide cycles at the back of the group and there is a support vehicle on hand should you require assistance.
