Hey Bikers! My name is Murat, and I am a chef and cyclist here in the city. I lived in the U.S. for more than 10 years, and I dreamed up this business after having such a blast touring my American friends around Istanbul. As a chef I work indoors at nights, so I try to be active and enjoy the great outdoors and sun as much as I can. I cycle about 150k-200k a week and I'd love to share my gastornomical and cycling experiences with new people. I have created several routes to paddle away from the chaos of the city in past decade and I know the best city trademarks, farmer markets and food stops on those routes. I think people who share the love of bicyles share the same values and enjoy each others company.
