Thorny Snails

The wild landscape of Greece is a little prickly. You must always watch where you step unless you want to end up with socks full of burrs or calves full of nasty scratches and microscopic thorns. The environment is particulary unfriendly to lycra bike shorts. I tried to imagine the ancient Greeks flitting through the mountains in their strappy leather sandals and their little skirts (yum, think of King Leonidas in the movie 300). I guess the ancient Greeks and these snails had something in common.

i hope that you had sunscreen on when you were riding topless down that descent that you showed in the pictures. Or was it that creepy looking dude?!? Well, regardless, My favorite is BonanaSport 50 SPF
