Bike with us!

Biking in Turkey on the Sufi Trail

The Sufi Trail is suitable for bikes. Bikepackers can cycle with mountain bikes on the hiking Trail or with trekking and city bikes on the asphalt roads. We have put a lot of effort into creating a low traffic route with historical sites and natural scenery.

The Sufi bike Trail divers in some sections from the Sufi Hiking Trail.

The distance is approximately 800 km and for an average cyclist, it will take two weeks to complete the Sufi Bike Trail from Istanbul to Konya. In most city’s there are bike repair shops a list will be available soon. Bikepackers with their tent can always ask the Muhtar (village head) for permission to place their tent in little villages. The cities in Turkey aren’t particularly orientated on camping sites.

For accommodation, we have a complete list ready for members. You can join the Sufi Trail with the Sufi Trail starters pack in our webshop. Sufi Trail members are eligible for individual WhatsApp support.

Experiences on the Sufi Bike Trail

Already one group of Slovenian bikers cycled from Konya towards Istanbul. They used the services of Cem Balsun Founder of Istanbul on bike and Tour Guide who speaks: English, Italian and Spanish. We are in the early days of planning our first Istanbul Konya and Konya back to Istanbul tour on bike.

The future of the Sufi Bike Trail

In 2019 we welcome people who like to cycle with us with their own bikes or if needed we can provide information on good cycling tracks away from the busy roads.

The hiking Trail is always close to the cycling route and we will develop the trail as such that sand and dirt roads will be good enough for trekking bikes.

We hope to meet you on our next adventure on a bike! The Sufi Trail bike dates for 2019 are:

7 – 21 June 2019    |  Istanbul Konya &
20 June – 4 Juli 2019  |  Konya Istanbul
