2017 Türkiye Cycle Tour Supporting BTF4Kids
Two Week Cross-Country Charity Sport Event
The upcoming 1,300 km trip will start in Canakkale on October 22, 2017 and continue south toward Izmir. Ultimately our voyage will finish in Antalya on November 4, 2017. We plan to cycle between 80-110 km per day along the Aegean coast line. In addition to our past participants from North Carolina there will be local cyclists joining us from Turkey. We have identified several corporate sponsors to cover our transportation and lodging expenses. We plan to have a minivan provide escort service as we cycle. This will enhance our on-road security and assist us transporting our luggage.
ALL of our fundraising for this event will benefit local school age children in Turkey. Through October 1st, Triangle Community Foundation will match each individual donation 1:1. If you are interested in joining our cause as a rider please contact us via email. For those who can’t make the trip, we welcome your donations.
