Day 1 of the Hercules Bike Tour around the Peloponnese of Greece. Today, I was cycling from Athens to Corinth, a distance of about 100km. This was the first of many bike touring vlogs about cycling in Greece during this bicycle tour.
The aim of this bike tour is to visit places in Greece connected with the myth of Hercules and the 12 Labours. Today, I visited Elefsina, an archaeological site that was at one point in time an important religious centre.
It was said that Hercules visited Elefsina in order to be inducted into the Elefsinian Mysteries before descending to the Underworld to capture Cerberus the fearsome three headed dog.
I then cycled on to finish the day in the town of Corinth.
I’ll be making a bike touring vlog a day during the Hercules Bike Tour. Please subscribe to the channel and check out the playlist for more videos!
