I, like others in the group were puzzled by the route selection. For example, why stop with something 3-4km to go on roads where the only other traffic appear to be donkey and carts by Lake Bafa when we had been cycling down an (albeit very scenic) stretch of dual carriageway most of the afternoon? Ditto on Day 5. If the aim is to limit length to c60km a day, why not start a bit later on the busy road so as to have the enjoyment and sense of acheivement of actually cycling to the destination? I got the impression that there was a safety concern re the narrowness of some of the roads; but when the only oncoming traffic is a donkey cart and the odd car or tractor, it's really not as dangerous as being overtaken by enormous trucks on a multilane highway with a gravelly hard shoulder and there are plenty of English country lanes which are narrower but fine to cycle down.
All the hotels (bar maybe the second one, which was not geared at foreign tourists and garishly decorated but the food was excellent) were good, particularly the last one in Dalyan (though I'm not a massive fan of Dalyan itself - very touristy). I'm giving it 4 stars as I had a great time both cycling (most of the time) and in the evenings though that might be a little generious as the routes on Day 4 and 5 need serious revisions, and more warning needed to be given of the climb on day 1.
I was very grateful to Yasser for his mechanical skills and Mustafa for his driving - they made a great team and it was fun hanging out with them and Semih in the evenings.
