Kalamata & Mountain Taygetus – 28th of July

Climbing on mountain Taygetus (Kalamata) – Road Cycling

Simply a wonderful climb

The number of cyclists who have climbed mountain Taygetus has fallen in love with this route. It is a climb that has everything, from steep parts in the beginning and false flat segments on its plateu, to quiet roads under the shade and running waters. The views of the switchbacks we leave behind and the one from Kalamata bay, as we descend, will make our day marvelous!
