Even I’m interested in cycling I didn’t hear before that my city is the part of European Cycling Challenge 2017 this year. Ironic.

I live in İzmir which is one of the most beautiful and (wants to) bike lover city in Turkey. City government tries to do something nice about cycling day by day. Like bike ways (even they’re short, but important anyway), rental points and being in the events about cycling etc. Accordingly, city has taken the part in the European Cycling Challenge.

Finally I’ve finished the 5 miles a day challenge. It went beyond 5 miles a day and it made me happy in general. I thought that I should finish the challenge at the end of the 4th week cause I was afraid to be bored cycling. Being in a challenge could be hard and If I didn’t want to give up cycling for the next days. So, I’ve decided to finish at the right time for me.

So the last week has started over 8 miles and continued again over 8 miles in the day after. The 3rd day was Total distancesawesome cause I could do over 10 miles. In the two days before the last day my performance was very poor. I thought that it could be the hot weather and the exhaustion of last days. I was in a nice town last 4 days of the challenge, I enjoyed but these poor performance was unlikable.
