Buyukgekmecie (Tur) to Istanbul (Tur)
I cycled into the city on the hair-raising main road and searched for a bike shop to make some vital repairs.
Unfortunately the only bike shop that serves touring cyclists that I can find is closed today (on Sunday). So I decided to find a cheap hotel and come back tomorrow. One way or another I have to get my bike sorted out as there is absolutely no chance of it making it home in its current state.
It was nice to ramble around the Old Town in the cool of the evening. One thing is for certain, I’m coming back here again to explore this amazing city thoroughly
The Blue Mosque
The Hagia Sophia
