Hello fellow cycling enthusiasts!

A week ago I followed the route below and simply loved it!

Here's GoogleMaps link: http://goo.gl/maps/3KKt

It starts at bike road in Maltepe and goes to:

Kadıköy Pier - Check Point 1 & take the ferry to Beşiktaş
Beşiktaş Pier - Check Point 2
Ortaköy Mosque - Check Point 3
Bosphorus University South Campus - Check Point 4
Galata Bridge - Check Point 5
Sultanahmet Square - Check Point 6

So the point it to take dull and full-of-kids on the bike path experience and turn it into a delightful touristic route with lots of food, photographs and stories on the way. Estimated distance would be around 65 km and time around 3 to 7 seven depending on the pace and the additional activities.

Let's agree on a time and date to make it happen!

That's Vol.1 and hoping to create many different routes focusing on certain themes.

To the admins of the group: This post will be merged with my other post titled 'Looking for cycling buddies' in approximately 10 days.
