Where you'll be

In this route you will have possibility of seeing Asian side as a local people do. If you like cycling near to the water it is the best route for you. We will start historical neighbourhood of Kadıköy. Until we reach bike way you will have the chance to see old apartments and local shops. First ten minutes of the route will be in the road. As I'm using this way since 10 years, so I know the least busy and the most interesting streets to take.

Basak was just great, I consider her a friend now and invited her to my country of origin. Great bike ride experience: She adjusted the pace, stopped whenever I wanted, took to great local locations with fantastic views and was tremendously friendly. Would have given 10 stars out of 5 if it was possible. Thanks so much, Basak!

This is a great experience for people looking forward to have some amazing views of the Asian side of Istanbul, enjoy good conversations with Basak, and do some exercise, all at the same time. I really enjoyed it!

I definitely recommend taking a bike ride with Başak. It was a positive and inspiring experience. I got to see so much more of the Asian side and compare the different districts and architectural styles. The nature was amazing as we passed three different parks along the way. Başak is a friendly and warm person. It was really nice to spend time with her. I hope we meet again.

What an amazing bike ride! I never would have imagined that the Asian side of Istanbul would have such great bike path along the water! Başak has the perfect path mapped to really enjoy the experience. She perfectly tailored the distance and speed of the ride to our group, so that we all had an amazing time. In our case, that was about a 20 mile ride. We had a few breaks for water, and perfect photo opportunity at sunset. Whether you're an experienced cyclist (like me) or a casual rider, you will love every minute of this. I recommend it!
