Road Biking Holidays

Our road cycling touring holidays are aimed at road cyclists looking for both a physical challenge and a scenic voyage into Turkey’s more unknown corners. Where we ride is important- we only go to the most beautiful, diverse and most rewarding places. But in planning we also consider elements such as road surface, traffic, quality of restaurants and availability of first class accommodation. Biking in Turkey road bike tours take to the asphalt for an average of 5-6 hours a day but this can be adjusted to suit your group’s particular requirements- and there is always plenty of time to explore sites, stop to admire the view, or take a dip in the sea. A Turkish road biking holiday isn’t necessarily the preserve of bona fide road cyclists or cycle touring experts, but we do feel that a lightweight road or touring bike ridden with proper cycling shoes and clothing will make your journey that bit more comfortable.

Here’s where we’re riding. Click on the links below to find out more.

Aegean Coast- for more info click here We are the first Turkish company to offer dedicated road biking holidays, and the Aegean Coast has lived up to every expectation. With rocky peninsulas, green rolling hillsides and endless pine forests the countryside is a stunning backdrop to traffic free, winding roads.

This tour links Cappadocia’s heart with the alpine Crimson Mountains and is an unforgettable biking experience.

Our Ethos:

Reaching remote, beautiful, undiscovered places doesn’t come without a bit of physical effort and mental determination, but it is our job to make your journey as pleasant as it is exciting. You are free to use the support vehicle as much or as little as you like, so don’t worry if you can’t manage the full itineraries. Where possible we only stay in the best boutique hotels and all our trips are fully supported, and guided by experienced, qualified guides. Check out the testimonials page to find out what recent customers think of us- we try to do things better than other bike tour operators!

Who runs our tours?

Unlike most bigger cycling tour operators we run all of our own tours ourselves. All the biking holidays presented on this site are organised and ran by us- not a partner operator- so you can be assured of the very best service throughout your trip. We know Turkey like the backs of our hands- from hidden mountain passes to undiscovered Mediterranean coves, to forgotten ancient remains and rare wildlife, Turkey’s wild and endless wilderness has always been our passion.

How to Book?

All tours can be reserved with a 150 Euro per person refundable deposit.

    Thank you

    • Hi Boddu, Thanks for getting in touch with us! We will be happy to organise a very nice trip for you this summer. I’ll send you an email with some further details- let me know if you haven’t received it. Kind regards, Jon

    • Hi Paul! Yes, they are great! We hope so too, about the US visa’s. It really is a crazy set of affairs. In Turkish we say “geçmiş olsun”…. I will drop you a line when things change. Thanks for your support! Jon

  2. We are a group of cyclists from South Africa, looking to do a road tour through the Aegean coast. We intend coming across around end Aug. could you indicate what the max no of riders that you could manage, the number of days and average distance per day. Lastly an indication of approximate cost will be helpful as well

    • Hi Naeem, Thanks for getting in touch. I wholeheartedly recommend the Aegean Road Biking tour:
      This is a relatively more challenging tour than the modest distances suggest. If you can handle the HEAT of the end of August then this will be perfect. If you prefer a cooler temperature then Cappadocia is a better option at this time of year. I will send you an email so we can talk through the details and price etc.
      Kind regards, Jon

    • Hi Yoram, Thanks for getting in touch. We can supply a top quality road bike and a guide to show you the area around Fethiye. However, as both would need to be dispatched from our base in Goreme, Cappadocia (8 hours drive away) there would be some attached cost. How many days were you thinking of? Hotel / single centre based or a point to point tour? I don’t have any suggestions for more local road biking options, unfortunately…

  3. I’m currently in Cyprus but thinking about cycling in Turkey and trying to work out how much time I might need to cycle from the coast at Tasucu / Mersin to Ankara. Can you help me work out if its something I have time for and you can help with?

    • Hi Dylan, Nice to hear from you. It’s possible of course to cycle from Mersin to Ankara in anything between 1 and 2 weeks if you’re fit- longer if you like to take your time. The best idea would be to go via Cappadocia, which is a lovely area for cycling. Whichever route you choose, you need to climb up and over the Taurus mountains, and will also have a long, flat stretch across to plains to reach Ankara. The trick will be to choose roads that are not used by trucks and buses, which also means you’ll need more time than you thought. We can assist with booking you hotels if you’d like a fixed schedule, and if you like we can even arrange a support car to carry your bags and offer technical support. What do you think? All my best, Jon

    • Thanks for getting in touch with us. The Aegean Road trip is possible and recommended in late March. The weather is often perfectly sunny, and warm without being overly hot. The landscapes are green and there are lots of wild flowers on the hills! I would suggest keeping the mileage as per the itinerary. The roads are fairly challenging, and many people have said that these 70km rides are much like 100 – 120km rides back home. You can always extend days by cutting down on transfers when you are there! I hope that hopes and will look forward to hearing back from you!

  4. My 1/2 IM is 23rd September. Can you send a list of holidays available in September or October. MTB or Road bike.

  5. Hi,
    I was looking to rent a proper road bike for my stay in |Dalyan between the 4th August to the 18th August.
    I am not interested in a tour as such. Is this possible and if so how much would it cost. I would need it delivering to Kings Villas Dalyan.

    • Hi Keith, unfortunately we only hire our road bikes as part of a tour package- whether guided or self-guided… Sorry about that- have a great holiday anyway, and I recommend a circuit of Koycegiz Lake. If you keep going past Candir to the end of the road you can get a free boat transfer across the river from The Other Side restaurant 🙂 Did it myself about an hour ago!
