Stage 35 Monday 2nd July 2012

Sean Barker


Istanbul (Tur) to Silviri (Tur)

My luck was in. I managed to get a new front rack fitted and replace all the other worn out components. I was now confident of having a fighting chance of making it back.

By the time my bike was ready it was 11:30 but I remembered a hotel I had passed on the cycle ride in and it was only 77km away so I decided to make my way for that.

It seemed strange cycling into the setting sun rather than watching my shadow grow as evening fell.

However the strong headwind that I had to force my way through on the run in to Istanbul was just as strong only now it blew me westward as I enjoyed the refreshing and cooling sea breezes.


Getting the bike fixed up for the long voyage home.
