Cycling in Greece During the Recession

"To Podilato" (which is greek for "the bicycle") is the most racing-oriented company in Greece. Having been deeply involved with racing teams and professional cycling for the last 25 years, this company has obtained the required knowledge to support the market, the dealers and above all the riders. "The riders always come first. No matter what, we have to overcome all difficulties and be able to support them". The best tuning in town for the best bicycles in the world: 7,000 riding days, more than half a million kilometers, 1,000+ races and still counting. This company has a passion for riding and supporting all riders in road, track, triathlon and MTB events.
 
As far as the cycling legend "Uncle Milou" is concerned, being a cyclist means pain. Born on a bicycle and  racing since late 80s, he surely knows everything there is to know about pain. According to the local myth, he even enjoys pain. That's why there is always a smile on his face. Several versions of this myth have managed to survive from ancient sources. As commonly told, his secret is a real smile - not a fake marketing-strategy-one. That smile is always there to offer support and good advice.
 
"Unemployment levels are beyond belief, and to make matters worse, keep rising rapidly. This defines the crisis. As a result, the popular notion is that it is a painful time to buy an expensive carbon bicycle. But on the other hand, people need to find ways to release pain". For the past three years, people throughout the country have felt pain - not only cyclists. Consequently, "To Podilato" is supporting riders so as to encourage them to go out and ride. They do their utmost to keep prices at low levels, notwithstanding the increased VAT and taxes, to offer flexible financing options, racing support, training advice, nutrition supplements, handling skills, bike fitting, race strategy, bicycle rentals and low-cost repairs, to support young riders and athletes.
 
Riding a Cervélo is the best ride and during this crisis, will be the best medicine for everyone.
 
So nevermind the crisis - keep riding.

    I can't agree more to the above story!! "Uncle Milou" + "To Podilato" is all what you describe but moreover is a private company which acts as been a personal coach/seller to everyone of us-its clients. This is the reason why "To Podilato" doesn't have simply clients but a funclub of clients!!!
