Molyvos Urban MTB Race 2018

For the fifth year, Molyvos will host Urban Mountain Bike (MTB) races. The 2018 programme is going to be different. The Molyvos Tourism Association has announced

The 5th Molyvos Urban MTB will include 2 races which are included in the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) calendar. Top athletes, members of National Teams from all over the world participate in UCI races in order to gather points for their participation in 2020 Olympic Games, so these 2 races will be a strong incentive for them to come to Lesvos.

The races will take place in Molyvos on 2 and 3 June 2018 and will be the greatest MTB race event at the North Aegean. The races aim to promote not only Lesvos, as a destination of cultural and environmental interest, but also the Cross Country MTB, a special Olympic sport. At the same time, the MOLYVOS URBAN MTB and KIDS races will take place!

Want to get some idea of what it’s all about?

Or perhaps an on board lap will make you want to join in!

About Robin

We started visiting Lesvos such a long time ago we can't remember when. We simply fell in love with the island in general and Molyvos in particular. In 2005 we bought some land and tried to manage the building of our house from the UK. Holidays became site visits and our house was [mostly] completed in 2007. In 2009 we sold up in the UK and moved to Molyvos. This is now our home and we count ourselves amongst the luckiest of the lucky. I am a member of the Molyvos Tourist Association, providing photographs for their brochures and general publicity. Most of my time is spent on activities to encourage tourism or taking photographs of one of the most beautiful places on earth. I also produce calendars and sell them on-line through Lesvos Calendars. Please visit and have a look. You can also see more of my photographs on my  Robin Sanders Photography website.
