Cycling in Turkey – facts and figures

Between the 20 December 2017 and the 13 of February 2018 (56 days) I cycled 2,102 Km (1,306 miles)  in Turkey covering an average of 57 Km a day. The longest distance I cycled on a single day was 106 Km and the shortest 10 Km.

During that time I spent 943 euros. The average daily cost in Turkey was 16.83 euros.

Eating out includes not only meals but any ready made refreshments like cakes whilst groceries includes the cost of ingredients to cook my own meals.

Communication covers the cost of SIM cards and postage to letters and parcels home and Transport are mainly ferries to and from Istanbul. The accommodation heading includes the costs of any thank you gifts I took to those that open the door of their home to me.

Nearly half of my money went on accommodation so I decided to look at that heading in a bit more detail.
