Cycling Anatolia: Three Weeks on the Sufi Trail,


An evening of storytelling from 1,500km pilgrimage as a cycling dervish on the cross-Anatolian Sufi Trail (Istanbul to Hatay). Following the old pilgrims’ route to Mecca, an intrepid cyclist pedals from my doorstep in Istanbul to the southernmost tip of Turkey. Traveling in the spirit of pilgrimage, he finds himself in a diverse geography dotted with shrines, mosques, churches and the ruins of ancient civilizations. Some of the stories come from the pages of the cyclist’s forthcoming ebook on the Sufi Trail.
