Pioneers Leg 9 – Çandir to Giresun 2021 - Cycling Tours - Ride25

Pioneers Leg 9 – Çandir to Giresun 2021

Turkey

 

This 5 day trip sees us pedal from the lay-by(!) in Çandir to the seafront in Giresun taking in coastline, lakes, wilderness, wildlife and open countryside – read more about the trip here.

With a total of 458 miles and 28,040 feet in climbing– this is another epic Ride25 challenge with the ultimate aim of raising even more vital funds for 1morechild.

The single supplement is £250 extra per person per trip.

As in all previous Pioneer trips this is a not-for-profit trip – i.e. the cost is a sum of the direct costs of running the trip only and is reliant on the help of our wonderful volunteers.

Originally planned for June 2020.  This event has been postponed to June 2021.

Itinerary


DAY 1 – CANDIR TO BOĞAZKALE
DAY 1 – CANDIR TO BOĞAZKALE
After a 60 minute bus ride from the hotel in Ankara we build our bikes in the same lay-by as the Leg 8 finish. The cycling is fantastic, quiet roads with amazing far reaching rural scenery all day. Rolling hills rather than any major climbs.
DAY 2 – BOĞAZKALE TO AMASYA
DAY 2 – BOĞAZKALE TO AMASYA
We leave the Hittite ruins and are spoilt with a day which is largely a continuation of the great cycling from day 1 – deserted roads, open far reaching countryside and a rural way of life. Road surfaces good for almost all of the day. Lunch is at a picnic spot with great views. We finish in Amasya a historic city based around the Yesilirmak River. The river comes to life at night when it is light up orange across town.
DAY 3 – AMASYA TO TOKAT
DAY 3 – AMASYA TO TOKAT
Another day of quiet rural roads, we begin with two bigger climbs in the morning followed by a downhill or flat elevations from mile 25 for the remainder of the day as we follow a river. Lunch at a restaurant in Turhal overlooking the river. PM coffee stop is at the historical landmark called Mahperi Hatun Kervansaray. We finish at a new 4* hotel with pools in the modern turkish town of Tokat.
DAY 4 – TOKAT TO UNYE
DAY 4 – TOKAT TO UNYE
A quiet start to the day after we leave Tokat as we follow country lanes followed by a busier section as we descend into the valley. We then start a long steady climb over the Pontic mountains towards the Black Sea. The climate, vegetation and views are different from the first three days. The afternoon involves a gradual descent to the coast – from a peak of 4,500 ft – lots of ups and downs until we see the sea.
DAY 5 –UNYE TO GIRESUN
DAY 5 –UNYE TO GIRESUN
The day begins with a busy stretch along a dual carriageway (with hard shoulder) before we take an old coast road for 30 miles that hugs the coast line – very quiet, great tarmac and sea views. There are two climbs on quiet country lanes across the day and two short sections of dual carriageway in the afternoon. After cycling through Giresun we finish at a hotel overlooking the sea. The evening party is dinner around the pool.
