Stage 1 of The Odyssey

From the soaring Byzantine dome of the Aya Sofya in Istanbul, and across the glittering island studded Mediterranean. 'The Odyssey' is true to its origins (besides its 10 year duration!) and the modern day definition of the word. Stage 1 starts in continent spanning Istanbul. From this city of cities we depart via the Bosphurus south towards Troy, the historic and legendary starting point for Odysseus' famed journey home. Turkey is heralded for its beautiful coastlines and rugged interior, the cycling tour of Turkey (the riders favourite UCI World event) is known for the same spectacular scenery. Taking in Gallipoli and Ephesus our historical journey spans the ages, then head towards Bodrum down the Lycian Way into the Turkish Riviera, also popularly known as the Turquoise Coast. We finish our Turkish adventure on the stunning Teke Peninsula which shows this country off at its most staggeringly beautiful - sweeping sandy beaches hugging a coastline gently caressed by jade waters, backed by forest-blanketed slopes dotted with ancient settlements. Scenery doesn't get much better!
