Cycling routes and bike maps in and around

Turkey

In Turkey, you can find the best cycling routes thanks to the bike route planner and cycle past ancient relicts or the turquoise-coloured sea and experience true biking adventures. Especially Cappadocia is a popular hotspot for bikers. The landscape was formed by volcanic eruptions and watercourses and has brought forth the weirdest constructions. Jagged rocks and mushroom-like towers emerge from the ground and hem the curvy bike trails.

Highlights

  • The famous Aegeas and its numerous ancient sites offer many destinations for a bike tour. You can visit the legendary ruins of Milet next to Troy and the oracle of Didyma. The big theatre is especially impressive.

  • Following the small donkey paths, the grand erosion landscape of Cappadocia with its numerous gorges, historic hilltop settlements and interesting rock formations can be wonderfully explored by bike.

  • You’ve already seen all of Istanbul’s sights? Relax in the Belgrade Forest - the recreational area is situated in Istanbul’s North and offers a variety of cycling routes.

     

Tips

  • Good tyres pay off! The Turkish streets mostly consist of rough tar which often melts in the summer so that pieces of tar stick to the tyres.

  • Cycling in Turkey can be very exhausting as sometimes up to 1000 m of differences in altitude need to be overcome in very mountainous areas. You should thoroughly inform yourself about the routes before pedalling away.

  • In Turkey, many gas stations also function as hostels for bikers. Here, you can sleep safely and maybe even shower.
