    • Hi Juan, Nice to hear from you! We do have availability for July 10th. I will send you an email with more details. Looking forward to seeing you! Best regards, Jon

  1. Hi could you please send me ore information on the mtb tours. I’m very much interested in the singletracks and don’t mind doing them alone but would need to rent a bike. I will be in turkey from 1 may. I’m interested in daily tours and bike hire. Please can you let me know about prices too. The Rand is very weak right now.

    • Hi Abdul, thanks for getting in touch. I’ll send you an email with details about our daily tours. The singletracks around Goreme are awesome… if you are planning to come to Cappadocia then you must ride!!! All best, Jon

  2. Morning! My husband and I will be spending 4 days in Goreme at the end of April and are very interested renting road bikes while we’re there. Can you please send me more information about costs, the types of road bikes available and suggestions for areas to explore. Many thanks!!!

  3. My wife and I will be in Cappadocia from late April 12th (should be arriving by bus) to the morning of April 16th (leaving Kayseri for Istanbul). We are interested in mountain biking some or all of our visit. What are your daily rental rates?
    We would probably go self guided. We are 63 and 64 (opps), but experienced mountain bikers (single track and some downhill) in pretty good shape (ah, except for my ski injured titanium knee). Your photos along with everything we have heard of your area look wonderful. We might enjoy some single track play as well as perhaps traveling between villages for accommodations and even avoiding or beating the tour bus crowds. I suppose that would involve luggage transfer or do you rent panniers, as well? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

  4. I will be staying in Goreme for 3 nights arriving on like to go mountain biking for a day. Are there any companies that offer half day mountain biking tours with bike equipent and a guide? Thanks. Angela

    • Hi Angela, Yes, we can offer you a wide range of half day mountain bike tours! Our day tours include all equipment and guide, and we have some world class mountain biking on our doorstep here in Goreme! When are you planning to come and how many are there in your party please? Many thanks, Jon

      • hi jon, I’ll be in capadocia for 03 nights from 16 to 18 June. I want to do the bike ride on the 16th. I can do a full day’s ride.
        I’ll be alone, my friends do not ride bikes. Can you advise what the cost of the tour? you can catch me at the hotel? Thank you Angela – my e-mail Is asouza@youinc.com.br

  5. We are a group very young to early 60’s, we are looking for a villa to accomodate a group of 10 family style holiday, but in an area where up to 4 could have mountain bike experience as part of the holiday. So it would need to be centre based. Could you offer any suggestions

    • Hi John, Thanks for getting in touch. My advice would be to centre yourselves in the Cappadocia region, where we are based. Great road or MTB cycling is close by, and there are plenty of accommodation options. I’ll email you with some more details. All the best, Jon

  6. Hi
    I’m in Turkey for only a short trip from April 8-14 and was hoping to hit up Istanbul and Cappadocia. I’m a novice MTB but have a fairly high level of fitness and thought a day or even 1/2 day of MTB with you guys in Cappadocia would be stellar. Is it warm enough around that time of year? Would you have trails for keen novices?

    I look forward to hearing from you with suggestions and comments.

    Thanks,
    Joanna

    • Hi Joanna,
      Thanks for getting in touch!
      Early April should be fine for biking in Cappadocia- a bit chilly still in the evenings but generally sunny!
      It would be a pleasure to show you around!
      We normally only offer day tours for groups of two or more but if you are a solo traveller we may be able to accommodate you.
      What date were you thinking about coming to Cappadocia?

  7. Hi, We are heading to Cappadocia this October and want to do some mountain biking. We are fairly fit and do lots of single track and downhill at home in BC. Do you rent all the gear? (pads/helmets/bikes?) Are there trail maps for that region??
    Thanks so much..
    Genevieve

    • Hi Genevieve. Great to hear you are coming to Cappadocia. I’ll be there until the 22nd October and would be glad to show you around some of the best trails. We do rent bikes (Specialized Rockhopper Comps in v. good condition), and rental includes helmet and gloves, but we don’t have pads. To be honest, the majority of the terrain, although really steep and challenging, is actually quite smooth and sandy- so neither full suspension or pads is probably really necessary here. It is absolutely great trail biking though, as you’ll see! There aren’t any decent trail maps, but you can get some .GPX files from us of course 🙂 Are you interested in a full week long tour, daily excursions, or just bike hire? Cheers, Jon

  8. Hello, we’re thinking of coming to Turkey in November and would like to do some road cycling, perhaps Cappadocia but we’re not sure about the weather- can you please advise? thank you.

    • Hi Barbara. To be quite honest November in Cappadocia can be really bad weather and I wouldn’t advise a cycling holiday there any later than, say, October 20th. A more sensible area to go would be the Aegean Coast, which often is very pleasant right through the winter. However, if serious rains do come, they sometimes come in November- so there would be the chance of bad weather there too. Sorry to not be more helpful but October would be better!

  9. Hi, I am going to Bodrum in a couple of weeks and would like to go mountainbiking. I was wandering if there are any downhill trails near which are of interest? I would like to hire everything, bike pads, helmet and would like like to know if there are any companies near who could help.
    Thanks..

    • Hi Allan. I’m afraid that around Bodrum there isn’t really any proper MTB infrastructure at all, let alone a trail centre with lifts, gear etc… We will be putting together a MTB tour of the Aegean region soon, but to be honest Turkey’s first single centre downhill specific MTB holiday is most likely to be on Erciyes volcano, in Cappadocia, in central Turkey. Sorry not to be of more help and have a great holiday!

      • Thats a shame, thanks for the info anyway. I will just have to enjoy the sun by the pool. I will try and book one of your tours at a later date. Thanks again.

  10. I will be staying in Goreme for 3 nights arriving on 21/05/12, May 21, and would like to go mountain biking for a half day. Are there any companies that offer half day mountain biking tours with bike equipent and a guide? Thanks. Diane

    • Hi Diane. Yes, Middle Earth Travel, based in the centre of Goreme, will be able to help you with a great half day guided tour in the local area. You can email them at info@middleearthtravel.com. It’s also possible that I may be there myself too and could guide you personally. Do you have MTB experience and what level of fitness would you say you were at? All the best, Jon.

  11. I am interested in a half day biking experience for 2 adults and 2 children aged 11 and 9.5. Could you let me know what the possibilities might be? We are going to be in Cappadocia April 20-21.

    Many thanks,

    Amanda

    • Hi Amanda, thanks for your enquiry. Half day rides based at office in Goreme, Cappadocia, offer some of the most incredible cycling anywhere in the country. There are plenty of traffic free dirt roads with fantastic scenary. I would suggest a simple transfer in the morning to get you to a high place at the start of a great route back to Goreme. Something like 20km would probably be plenty and could take in several of the areas best sites too! Would you like me to put you an itinerary together? All the best, Jon
