Cycling mainly on unsurfaced farm tracks and quiet backroads, we discover the magical region of Cappadocia, where soft lava and ash rock has eroded over millennia to form a fairytale landscape unlike any other on earth. Bizarrely shaped rock forms and exotically contoured cliffs feast the eye while underground a fascinating network of tunnels, rock-cut churches, caves and even whole cities are waiting to be explored. Our route takes us through the best of Cappadocia’s landscapes but also to areas seldom visited by tourists which seem to belong in a different age.
