Giannis & Manos have been pursuing competitive cycling since the age of 12; unquestionably, there is not a single spot in Crete that they haven’t explored with their bikes. Cretan Peaks is the accumulation of many years of hard work. After thorough planning, configuring and testing, they compiled a number of journeys that bear different characteristics, making sure that every participating cyclist can explore a full-range training.
