Sporades cycling and trails


Sporades cycling has started to write down the trails they are cycling around the island and they are also starting with the islands Alonissos and Skiathos. Below is their last recording of the area and their comment:
Pouda & Mavragani: Lovely quiet trails at the very north of Skopelos. Very up and down with some steeper ramps (only walked once!). Nice lunch/drinks stop at the almost never visited small church of Agios Georgios, tucked away in the woods but with lovely views of the coastline and beach at Perivolou.

apolafsi new chairsFurther evidence that Skopelos is returning to something like it was prior to the 22 September extreme weather event last year: Apolafsi, one of the worst-hit enterprises that evening, is readying to re-open in May and recently took receipt of new chairs and tables to replace those ruined in the floods.

We also hear that Nastas taverna, probably the worst-hit of all, is planning to move to temporary premises next door to Swell bar on the road above Ammos, the town beach. More on that as plans unfold.

Mention of Swell reminds us that a small contained riot will probably convene on the limani, port, tomorrow to welcome owners Evvi and Maria as they return to start work to re-open for the new season.

Squint and it could almost be summer already!

We sit corrected: A chance encounter with Christos in the street today elicits the update that Apolafsi will in fact re-open on April 8. See you there.
