Photo Diary- Turkey

July 31, 2016



 Turkey's number 1 ski resort apparently


 Fun little town with a weird guesthouse. The caravanserai in Tercan.

 Cycling south-west in the morning

 The 6th summit of over 2000m

 And then the 7th

 Dull. No turn for 50km.

 Random act of kindness- tea and pizza for free


 What a guy!

 West towards Cappadocia- 159km that day

 Melting roads = havoc for tyres and guards









 Absolutely nothing apart from me and my bike for 100km

 Nothing- but I like it. It felt and smelled like a sauna.


 Whirling dervishes


 A long one- 40km of steady up


 Made it to the sea just before dark




 Off to Antalya


 Ancient city of Olympus



 A waste of time hiking to the Eternal Flames of Chimeara

 This, yes this, is supposed to be where the idea of the olympic torch came from



 A long, hot climb- charity logo shot

 A lovely ride along the coast

Big sea turtles

 Tombs- now in the sea
