Turkey – Cappadocia Singletrack Full Itinerary
The Mountain Biking - Introduction
Cappadocia is Turkey’s mountain bike paradise. Its dramatic volcanic landscape offers challenging and rewarding slick rock trails, lush green singletrack and a world of caves, canyons and secret paths to explore. The Cappadocia region has what many believe is Turkey’s most stunning and varied landscapes – one look at our photo gallery will give you a taste of this, but the reality is a whole lot more breath-taking.
Our expert-led tour is managed on the ground by two highly experienced guides – Their aim is to give you the best mountain biking experience on these seldom-visited trails while keeping things flowing smoothly and safely throughout the trip.
Guides & Vehicle Support
This holiday is a two-guide tour for a group size larger than 8 riders, with a third member of the tour team acting as the support vehicle driver. Choosing a singletrack tour with two guides has a huge range of benefits, including:
- Greater knowledge, thanks to the blend of experiences and skills that two guides can bring to the trip
- Greater freedom, if you want to try something that’s different from the main itinerary. Like balloon ride early in the morning.
- Smoother service, as everything flows more easily, from loading bikes to moving bags to everyday tour management
Support vehicle: A vehicle will transport luggage and meet the group periodically each day for water replenishment. The nature of the trails means that (as any mountain biker would hope!) vehicles cannot follow.
Usual daily distances: 45km to 60km
Days of cycling: 6
Terrain: The whole tour is made up of fast flowing singletrack on the mountains and in the cannons of the Cappadocia region, which sits right in the centre of Turkey. These trails have a wonderful flow, sometimes smooth and fast, sometimes peppered with rocks for some technical challenges, or slimming down to a pencil line, slicing deep into the slopes of a canyon. The nature of the landscape means steep climbs and descents are common on this trip, so good fitness and ability level are required.
