I set off reasonably early and headed straight for the trails but within 2 minutes I was stopped at a Police checkpoint. A quick check of my documents, two officers wanted to sit on the bike before lots of pats on the back and advice to ride carefully before I was on my way.
The ride to Antalya was easy but Antalya itself is a hugely busy town. The traffic was manic, it was hot and I wasn’t happy sat gently roasting in traffic
I’d had two days in Antalya and barely scraped the surface of this diverse city. However it was very touristy and I was ready to move on.
