Nine cyclists on Saturday began a protect bike ride from the city of Tripolis in the Peloponnese to Athens, a distance of about 193 kilometres, aiming to arrive for the protest being organised in Syntagma Square by the indefatigable Greek 'Indignados' (Indignant Citizens Movement) on Sunday night.
The aim of the organisers, who hope to be joined by cyclists throughout the Peloponnese, was to demonstrate for the citizens' right to peacefully protest and to express their indignation and concern over the brutal police response to protestors on June 28-29.
