The 10th anniversary of the Athens Bike Festival 2024, powered by ΔΕΗ (the Public Power Corp.), is set to be celebrated with a three-day extravaganza at the old trolley bus depot (Pireos & Ermou streets) from April 12 to 14, generously supported by PPC. As cycling becomes more integrated into our daily routines as a form of exercise, entertainments and means of transport, this year’s event returns bigger, more empowered and engaging.
