Italian traveler Alex Sidney, who went on a world tour with his special bicycle, stopped in Beyşehir district of Konya.
Sydney, who lives in England and started his world tour from the Netherlands last March, attracts the attention of those who see the bicycle he personally made on his trip.
Sidney, who continues his journey with the stray dog named "Nova" that he met on the road and took with him, describes the Turks he met in the Turkey leg of his trip as "hospitable and very warm-blooded".
The bicycle traveler, who was hosted by the Beyşehir Bicycle Society in the district, explained the reason for going on a world tour as "getting to know new cultures, new people and passion for nature".
Mustafa Büyükkafalı, President of Beyşehir Culture and Tourism Association, stated that they were very happy to host Alex Sidney at Beyşehir Bicycle Community Bicycle House and to get to know him closely, and said, "We also gave him a jersey and sent him off towards Antalya, so that his path is clear."
