Walking In The Woods – Turkey Edition

By Darren Alff on - Download my FREE bike tour starter guide!

After leaving the apartment I rented in Istanbul, Turkey, I spent the next four nights camping in the wilds of northern Turkey. To hide myself from farmers, children and animals, I usually had to go quite a ways back into the shrubbery before finding a place to set up camp. This usually meant pushing or carrying my bicycle through all sorts of grass, trees, bushes and vines. The result of all this work was an amazing campsite every single time, but it also scratched up my shins and filled my socks with stickers and thorns.

My goal as the Bicycle Touring Pro is to give you the confidence and inspiration you need to travel by bicycle anywhere in the world. I do all of the work on this website by myself. Since 2007, all of the articles, books, emails, interviews, photos, podcasts and videos have been created by me in my spare time. Thanks to the generous donations I receive from readers like you, I'm able to focus on creating regular, high-quality content; invest further in developing the website; and cover the costs related to my bicycle touring activities.
