Turkey: Cycling - Mountain Biking
Bridging the East and West
Cycling in Turkey is an interesting way to explore the scenic surrounding that the country has to offer. To experience real countryside beauty head to the Turkish Kackar Mountains which is an ‘off the beaten path’ route. The easier off road rides follow tracks lined with citrus groves to quaint old villages. Venturing further inland, cycling in Turkey opens up challenging climbs into pine forests which lead to traditional Turkish villages and tremendous views over the Greek islands of the Aegean. Excellent off road descents lead back to Ortakent. Cycling in Turkey takes travelers to Teos and Ortakent, especially popular with novice cyclists. Cappadocia is another popular destination for cycling in Turkey.
