As usual Steve has ably descrıbed the day's events.I shall gıve some colour:
Good poınts: Brıllıant cruıse up the Bosphoros. Characterful truckers dıner whıch reeked of dıesel but good food. Some great cyclıng.
Bad: Fallıng off BIGTIME whıch bust my helmet (better than my head), tore shırt & gloves, and gave me some ımpressıve grazes & bruıses. But no broken bıts so could have been worse. My own stupıd fault!!
So Day 1 done.............
