Rides bikes, paddles sea kayaks, takes pictures. Life on the road & my home in Cornwall.
If a backpacker says that a place is not worth visiting because there ‘is nothing to do there’ it can generally be assumed that the opposite is true. Such is the case with Eğirdir (pronounced ‘E-irdir’)… I have really enjoyed my couple of days here. Yesterday was my first proper rest day in some 900km, since Troy in fact, and was much needed. I did very little…almost bugger all in fact.. Then today I took my bike exploring in the mountains south of town and discovered a terrific network of high, remote dirt trails to play on, with some nice steep, rocky technical sections in particular to enjoy… thus illustrating why, in my entirely prejudiced opinion, one should always travel on a dirt-capable bike. It is just better.
What is more the wind has dropped, the temperature has risen to a rather wonderful 22 degs C and there is not a cloud in the sky. Forecast says it is going to stay like this for a bit so I am looking forward to the ride north… in the meantime however some photos.. for a change…
