Hi from Turkey

Hello everybody
First of all, sorry for my poor English
I live in Cerkezkoy, a little town near Istanbul.
I am interested in bike tours.

If you enter Turkey by cycling from Edirne (from Greece or Bulgaria), you will pass very near to my town. In that case, I will be glad to wellcome all of you.
In fact I am a beginner in bike tours, but I can get in contat with many experienced people in Turkey. And I will do my best to help you on any subject. Where to go, what to buy, where to stay, camping areas, where to eat... etc. whatever it is. Also, in Thrace (Eurpoean side of Turkey inculding the cities: Edirne, Kırklareli, Tekirdag) we can arrange free housing for little groups.

Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions about Turkey or Turkish people. I will be honest
note my e-mail acc: gattilla@gmail.com

hope to see you soon

Hello, and welcome!
I have always wanted to visit Turkey. I hope to get the chance to go, and
cycling there would be even better.

Hi again

I prepared a blog:
http://cyclinginturkey.wordpress.com/

And I have submitted a thread for this blog:
http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...61#post9680361

At the beginning, -sorry but- you will not be able to find so much details.
It's constructed just to publish the lists of:

* Organizations in Turkey: You can reach to e-mail/facebook groups, etc... You may request for help directly from these organisations. Or you can join to the e-mail groups or facebook groups and then request for help from the whole group. You can be sure that there will be many hospitable bikers.

* Stores


In the future, I plan to add many other details such as: Routes, Event calendar, Guide...
