The challenging bridge at Andros

It’s been challenging seeking out bridges in Greece worthy of the challenge.  We’ve been in the islands, and there just haven’t been many bridges around.  I’ve been quite stressed about this, as I’m sure you can imagine.

We finally found a second bridge yesterday though, and it was definitely a challenge.  Challenging enough that we didn’t even cross it on foot, much less with a bike.  Great little bridge though: built in 1207 by the Venetians to access the tiny fortress on the tiny island off the edge of the city, it’s just a skeleton of its former self now.

Up to the judges whether this qualifies, since there’s no bike in the photo.  In the meantime, while we await a decision, we’ll keep looking.

You can read more about the bridge, the fort, Andros and the tour here.


This is just a placeholder for now. I’ll add a real description when I get more time.

    Sorry, Scott. No bike in photo with bridge. This is an epic fail on your part! 😉

    However, we will offer double points if you can get a pic of your bike with the Rion-Antirion Bridge across the Gulf of Corinth. There’s a challenge for you!

    I was afraid of that. I agree, I’d love to see the bridge across the Gulf of Corinth myself. We nearly went that way on this tour, but decided we had to go north to Meteora instead. It would take about a two week detour to get to Rion. Shame to pass up those bonus points too.
