Photo on the bike: Cows in the field

Riding on your bicycle provides you to explore new places and new colours. You can say that you’re already explore new places by walking. Yes, but when you’re on the bike you’ll probably explore more places in less time. Because you’re fast! 🙂

I saw these cute cows while cycling inside Urla which is a calm and small town near Ä°zmir in Turkey. Normally here is a coastal area but inside the town there are many farms like this and there are many people live with farming.

How can I ride on a bike again?

Excuse me! Can I ask how can I ride on my bike again cause I’m afraid that I forgot to do it.

Yeap! It’s almost about a year. I can say that I couldn’t even ride on my bike so much because of something 🙂 I missed it but I had so many things to do. I know that seems  a pretext but I had nothing to do. Anyway, I’m going to pedal again (I hope) and write here some blog posts. I hope I can update this blog often.

Hope hope hope,

See you.

I missed riding my bike very much

missed riding my bike

I can’t write often to my lovely bike blog, but it doesn’t mean that I don’t like it anymore. I hope it didn’t get angry at me.

I’m very busy nowadays. I still love cycling, I’m cycling rarely these days due to some works.

I couldn’t ride my bike for some weeks. Last two days I’m riding it again, I mean I’m still busy but I could make time to ride on it. I can’t tell how I missed it.

I’m gonna try to make more time to cycle again. It makes me feel good.

Long and hot summer days are coming in many regions and for cycling ethusiasts a hot day could make them feel awful. Particularly in long distance rides, you should be more careful and take some precautions for summer cycling.

1. Take precaution for dehydration

Luka Pibernik thought that he won the race but he was wrong

Giro D'Italia 2017

An iteresting incident happened in Giro D’Italia. Young cyclists Luka Pibernik (23) celebrated his victory believing he’s finished the race but he didn’t.

It was the 2nd time of Luka Pibernik in the this Grand Tour Race and I guess he was excited more than enough. When he thought that he has finished the lap, there was one more lap more. The other cyclists passed him naturally and go on the race for 6 kilometers more. When he realized that the race hasn’t finished yet, it was too late.

How I felt when I took a break from cycling?

break for cycling

After 4 week challenge I thought that it could be nice to take some break. I was wondering whether I’m gonna miss cycling or not.

I wasn’t cycling regularly 2 months before today. I was just cycling some days and riding it for commuting sometimes. But it wasn’t easy to cycle for commuting every time. Than I quit my job interestingly and I decided to cycle while I was looking for a new job.

Photo on the bike: Fishing Boats

Boats on the lake

Fishermen left their boats on the lake until the next fishing. They’re lonely boats now. They look like tired. Tired from fishing for many years.

There’s a nice green house upper left. It’s maybe a fisherman’s house. He wants to keep his fishing boat in front of his house. Because it’s necessary for living.
