Another Sunday bike ride in Istanbul: I started as early as 6:00 in the morning, first headed to South (Ortaköy), then climbed up to Maden (Sarıyer) and went to Rumeli Lighthouse village.

At the end of the ride, I covered 83 km and climbed 921 meters in 2:54:38 (avg. 28.50 kph)
Then I returned back to home through Kocataş. Here are the photos below, enjoy.
