Hello all ,
Last summer i cycled from Kocaeli to Georgia-Batumi (1700 km) by Black Sea n this summer in July i want to cycle from İstanbul to Germany-Berlin.
Has anyone here who cycled this route before n want to share his/her experiences? If yes,can u please tell me about which route is better,which places should i be careful,n also if there r some warmshowers host on that route can they help me on the way?Also u can tell me about the campings!
Thank you very much from now for your helps... :)
I arrive in Istanbul on June 1st and plan on cycling home to the UK. Well that is the current plan...
It ll be a great if we can pedal together but u r going too early fo me coz i ll start my travel 1st July.But if u ll pass from my city Izmit,u can be my guest n rest.Also we can overhaul your bike if u want ;)
Take care n c ya then.
Staying with someone who knows the city would be great. Will be in touch.
Sure whenever u want dont hesitate to ask about staying. My e-mail is [email protected] We can keep in touch here.
Take care n safe travel.
in June 2011 we took a train from Freiburg/Germany to Istanbul. The plan was, to cycle as far as we can into the direction home within the remaining time of about 3 weeks. So we cycled from Turkey to Croatia and passed Greece, Macedonia, Kosovo (by train and bus, because cycling was to dangerous, the car-drivers are not used to bikers), Montenegro (wonderful landscape, bad roads ;-) and Croatia. The coastal highway in Croatia is to small for cars and bikes, so we didn't cycle much there.
How good is your German? (Because we wrote a closed blog about our tour.)
Hopefully we will be in Turkey for our cycling holiday in June this year.
Lot's of greatings,
If you do not hurry, you have to go through the Rhodopes, South Bulgaria, then join the Danube. Through the park Semenic Romania and so on ...
Ellen and Patrick thank u very much for your informative explanations.I hope my friend n I ll be on the way in July for this great tour.
By the way Ellen if u r here in June i can host u in my flat.
Take care n good luck friends..
