Hundreds of cyclists of all ages gathered on Sunday in downtown Athens to mark World Environment Day with a cycling tour and also to send a message of ecology, "healthy living", and quick and safe transport.
The cycling tour started from Eleftherias Park, with the final destination being the coastal city of Faliro seven hours later.

The Greek national cycling team took part in the event.

The cycling tour was organised under the auspices of the Transport and Environment Ministries.
