Color 'runs' with bicycles in Greece

Cycling is one of our favorite hobbies and sports and covers all ages. Children, youngsters and adults meet throughout Greece, cycling at amazing sights and many of them participate in sporting events that tend to increase lately.

In Vitex, we have a great understanding of the Eco culture as we produce ecological products and having lived with an ecological consciousness for many decades, we fully comprehend the benefits of ecological transport through our cooperation and active support of the Alfa cycling team. We consider the bicycle as an ideal means of developing our environmental consciousness. It contributes to ecology and promotes a cleaner, healthier and more qualitative environment, like our products.

ALPHA cycling team was founded as an idea at the end of 2013 and took its final form in mid-2014 with the establishment of a Sports Club entitled "Alpha Peristeri Athletic Club".  It consists of two bodies: cycling and table tennis (ping-pong). Organizing and implementing the cycling team schedule started for the 2015 season.

The group already consists of more than 40 athletes in the categories of Men, Women, People with Disabilities, Master. In most of them, many podiums at major competitions nationwide have already been achieved.

Specifically, each year the team participates in the following events:

• PEPA Cup (Veteran Athletes Cycling Union)

Road bicycles, Mountain Bikes, Personal time time trial, etc.

Our next Vitex & Alpha Cycling Team common goal is to strengthen all group categories as to continue to show our strong presence.
