Winter Escape Southturkey
Have you had enough of riding the few legal trails left in the UK this winter?
Fed up with endless ruts and opening and closing farm gates?
Or are you a road-rider that needs his next fix before spring?
Maybe you’re an off-road competitor in need of some winter training?
Well you could go to the Spanish Pyrenees or France or even Portugal’s Algarve, but its time to have a go at the real thing, endless virgin off-road tracks, sand, rocks, mountains, riverbeds, forest and mud.
You’re just a 4 hour flight away from off-road motorcycle heaven in Turkey!
Here at Yoshimoto Off Road Tours we offer you the winter holiday of a lifetime. Who else is offering 6 days riding, a KTM 450 EXC, riding gear, unlimited off road trails (with no gates), suitability to every standard of rider, stunning scenery of the Taurus mountains, a taste of Turkish food and hospitality, visits to historical sites, and snow (yes we do get snow in Turkey!). Oh yes, plus you get to stay in a five star hotel every night.
The programme is different to the Adventure Tour in that we return to the same five star hotel every night, meaning you could bring your wife along (or not!)
The routine is very relaxed. After a good hearty breakfast, the riding starts from the tourist resort of Alanya. After some local trails we head into the mountains, each day exploring a different area and different tracks. Lunch is at a mountain restaurant where we sample lovely local food and hospitality. In the afternoon we head back to the hotel, taking in the amazing views of the Mediterranean and the Taurus mountains.
The terrain in Turkey has to be seen to be believed, ranging from flat gravel tracks to extreme goat paths that will prove great training for the very best enduro competitor. We travel up to 200km a day (depending on the group) and adjust the difficulty of the route to suit the group’s ability.
The weather at this time of year just about perfect for off-road motorcycling. Most days you’ll be riding in a shirt. We do get occasional rain, but it lasts three hours, not three weeks!
