It’s March now and March is the month of misty, chilly mornings in Istanbul. It was a beautiful Sunday morning, the roads were empty. A perfect day for a bike ride in Istanbul!
The roads would be crowded soon, so I hurried to ride my bike for an hour or two.
It was really chilly and misty this morning. I first did a fast downhill to the Bosphorus, then headed south to Ortaköy.
After returning back from Ortakoy, I decided to go to Rumeli Kavağı to take some photos.
The sun was shining beautifully, so I decided to climb up to Havantepe to take some more photos.

Havantepe road is very steep (up to 20%) uphill with a few hairpins.
The view from atop Havantepe is beautiful. I took a selfie there.
