Bicyle Tour

OVERVIEW

Istanbul is huge and there are plenty of things to do. Traffic can sometimes be a huge obstacle to move around the city. We have a better offer: how about pedaling through the most picturesque local neighbourhoods of Istanbul?

The best pedal routes are located on the Asian side. And needless to say how beautiful the view of the old city is from here. Let’s start this unique outdoor discovery trip from Kadıköy.

Before we start pedaling:

  • We meet at Kadıköy Pier (Seaside/Harbour)
  • Pick the best bicycle for each person on the tour from our bicycle shop
  • Get safety equipments (Helmet, safety vest)
  • Don’t forget to put sunscreen on!
  • Take this 20 minute safety training and summary of our trip

Ready to go! We start our Istanbul pedal journey from Kadıköy and ride towards Moda, one of the most hip and chill neighborhoods of Istanbul. Maybe have a cup of Turkish coffee in a boutique coffee shop or take a sip of Turkish tea at the historical Moda Pier.

Let’s keep going, we have more wonderful places to see and discover! Our next stops are Kalamış Marina and Fenerbahçe Park. Both places are perfect fit for photography. We will have short breaks at each place to make great captures.

After our photography break, we keep riding to Caddebostan along the seaside. This is where the longest bicycle lane of Istanbul starts. Special bicycle lane goes all along on the seaside for 20 kilometers. Don’t worry we are not going to hit the pedal that far away. However we will enjoy the most beautiful pedal roads of Istanbul. Asian (Anatolian) part of Istanbul has the great seaside walks, this is the best place where you can enjoy the enchanting views of Prince’s Islands.

If you feel like getting hungry, Caddebostan is a great spot to grab some sandwiches filled with meze (Traditional Turkish appetizers) and maybe a glass of wine or beer.

There are lot of local people gathering and chilling at the parks by the sea side after a busy day. We will also have the chance to watch and enjoy sunset as well.

Caddebostan shore will be our longest stop for chatting, relaxing and having snacks.

How hard is the cycling route ?

Our route is almost 20 Kilometres long. There are  only 2 steeps where we ride our bicycles up the hill. Don't worry it is not too steep. We'll mostly be riding by the seaside on an easy and picturesque route. We can have short breaks whenever you feel like having one. Don't forget that this is not a race, we ride to discover and have fun. We will stop every 2-3 kilometers to take some photos or have snacks.
