The bicycle academy

We are doing well for cycling themed accommodation in Turkey. Our next stop was the Lüleburgaz Bicycle Academy. The Academy was developed in 2017 with the aim to promote cycling in the region. They offer free maintenance workshops, training sessions, and bike hire. Whilst we were there a group of children were packing up a mini bus to then be driven 11 hours through the night to attend a competition. The Academy also provides two dorms for cycle tourists to use for free as they pass through the city.

For the third time on our trip we came across Timo on his way to China, and who is from Basel (such a small world!). It seemed about time to cycle a little bit of the way together, but not without a spin around the Academy bicycle track first.
