The coast line from Beşiktaş to Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge is a very nice and easy path. It wil take about 2 hours by biking slowly and enjoying the view (Beşiktaş to Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge and then return to Beşiktaş).
You see Ortakoy, Rumeli Hisarı (castle) and two bridges on the way. You feel the breeze of the Bosphorous (İstanbul boğazı) 🙂
– Use a helmet (the store should supply it when you rent the bike) and a suitable shoe (not a slipper)
– Prefer weekdays (weekends will be crowded)
– You can rent a bike from the stores in Besiktas or anywhere (if you rent in Kadıkoy, you can use the Sehir Hatlari Boat to Besiktas)
– Path to Ortakoy, you should use the main road,
-After Ortakoy, mostly you can use the pedestrian lane (sorry no bike road)
Be careful of the fisherman’s fishing line, just drive slowly and enjoy the view.
You can have a light breakfast with a simit and you can even find tea on your way.
You can visit and enjoy Yıldız Koru Park (in Beşiktaş). You can feed the squirrels there.
Enjoy 😉 See you on the road …
