Bikepacking In Turkey: 800 Miles – Istanbul To Antalya

Brompton Traveler – Bikepacking with Gianni Filippini from Istanbul to Antalya in Turkey:

Istanbul is a major city in Turkey that straddles Europe and Asia across the Bosphorus Strait. Its Old City reflects cultural influences of the many empires that once ruled here. In the Sultanahmet district, the open-air, Roman-era Hippodrome was for centuries the site of chariot races, and Egyptian obelisks also remain. The iconic Byzantine Hagia Sophia features a soaring 6th-century dome and rare Christian mosaics.

Antalya is a Turkish resort city with a yacht-filled Old Harbor and beaches flanked by large hotels. It’s a gateway to Turkey’s southern Mediterranean region, known as the Turquoise Coast for its blue waters. Remnants remain from Antalya’s time as a major Roman port. These include Hadrian’s Gate, built to honor the Roman emperor’s visit in 130 A.D and 2nd-century Hidirlik Tower, with harbor views. 

Filmed and edited by Gianni Filippini in October 2022.

Bike Tours: Hamburg In Northern Germany (4K)

Two wheels, one goal: exploring Hamburg from a cycling perspective. Rather than exploring Hamburg through a city walk, Amélie’s mission on a sunny day in Hamburg is to bike through the urban jungle as well as through the green parts of the city. Amélie starts at the Fischmarkt in the Rad Race Shop and crosses the Elbtunnel, which connects the centre of Hamburg with the docks and shipyards on the south side of the Elbe.

Video timeline: 00:00 Fischmarkt | Rad Race Shop 03:44 Elbtunnel 08:33 Landungsbrücken 11:34 Elbphilharmonie 12:37 Hafencity 18:22 Speicherstadt 25:41 Hamburger Rathaus 28:16 Jungfernstieg 40:14 Planten un Blomen 49:06 Reeperbahn

Out of the lift of the Elbtunnel, the route continues via the Landungsbrücken to the Elbphilharmonie. From there, via the Speicherstadt to Hamburg City Hall. After the Jungfernstieg, the tour continues along the green side of Hamburg through the Old Botanical Garden and Planten un Blomen.

Via the Reeperbahn, we return to the Rad Race Shop for Amélie to enjoy a cup of coffee.

Extreme Sports: Wildest Red Bull POV Videos (2021)

We’re barely scratching the surface with these POV (point of view) videos from 2021 at Red Bull, we’ve had an epic year and some incredible projects, on skis, kayaks, bikes and in the air with some world firsts like flying a plane through a tunnel and flying through a volcano. We couldn’t include them all. Which one of these action clips is your favourite? Which should we have included? What should we do next year?

Views: The McKenzie Pass Scenic Bikeway, Oregon

In this episode of the Peak Northwest video series, host Jim Ryan cycles the spectacular McKenzie Pass Scenic Bikeway in central Oregon. The ride is framed by the Cascades and beautiful forests, and it’s punctuated by a historic, if not eerie, observatory — constructed from the same lava rock that surrounds it for miles. To some, the area is an unsettling moonscape. To others, it’s begging to be explored on two wheels.

Bike Tours: Janiculum Hill In Rome, Italy (4K Video)

The Janiculum, occasionally the Janiculan Hill, is a hill in western Rome, Italy. Although it is the second-tallest hill in the contemporary city of Rome, the Janiculum does not figure among the proverbial Seven Hills of Rome, being west of the Tiber and outside the boundaries of the ancient city. 

Bike Tours: Trastevere In Rome, Italy (4K Video)

Colorful Trastevere is a funky, bohemian area that clings to its centuries-old, working-class roots. It’s known for traditional and innovative trattorias, craft beer pubs and artisan shops, as well as simple B&Bs and budget hotels. From the pre-dinner passeggiata (promenade) until late, a young crowd buzzes around Piazza di San Calisto and Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere, the site of a gilded, mosaic-filled church.
