Self-Guided Cycling in Turkey
Embark on a self-guided bike tour of Turkey's rugged southwest coast, making use of occasional transfers to give you the best rides available over 8 days. Showcasing the natural beauty, cultural values and stunning archaeological sites of the area, you will have all day to ride the route at your own pace, stopping wherever you fancy to taste the fresh fruit for sale, drink a tea in one of the local cafes or simply soak up the views. Ride on very quiet but well-surfaced roads. The roads are a good mix of flat and hilly, with some steep ascents in places, where the low gears of the bikes are welcome.
