    Big city ride

    October 25, 2020 in Turkey ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    Before we left Osmaniye, Savaş brought us pide for breakfast. Thus, we had enough energy for the ride to Adana. The route was flat and not particularly interesting, but we could stay on small roads for most of the time. As it was Sunday, the villages we passed were quiet. We also passed lots of orange and lemon tree orchards and hope to catch at least the beginning of the season in November!
    We arrived in Adana early. The city is huge and cycling in the traffic is not too much fun. We did a little tour through the centre visiting, among others, the Central Mosque, Big Mosque and Old Mosque, the markets, a church and an old bridge. Afterwards, we headed to the North of the city where the guys of the local bicycle club welcomed us. Asiye took us out for Adana kebab and local desserts. She even organised a taxi, so that we could see the huge lake park North of the city. It was lit in colourful lights and it obviously THE place to be at night for the locals here.
