Dave Briggs – Cycle Touring Greece Day 4 – Loutra Ipatis to Lake Plastira


This was one of the toughest but also most enjoyable days of the bike tour in Greece. Covering over 120 kms, with almost 1700 metres of total elevation gain, there were two main passes of the day. The first, was over the hills near Loutra Ipatis. The second, much bigger climb, was cycling to Lake Plastira.
This lake is situated at an elevation of 850 metres, and is incredibly beautiful. I arrived late in the day to enjoy it, but finished by wild camping in Lake Plastira so I could wake up by the shoreline the following morning!
