Off the Beaten Cycle Path: Country Life

Old friend of The Slow Cyclist – and former Travel Editor of House & Garden – Pammy Goodman cycled through the Taurus Mountains with us earlier this year. In her latest piece for Country Life, she describes the journey as ‘a magical week’. Here is an excerpt from the article, published in November 2023.

“What draws me back, you might ask, to which I could offer a number of responses. For starters, Slow Cyclist locations are always unusual and interesting, sidestepping well-trodden tourist tracks in favour of the obscure and remote. Next, I might cite the healthy combination of cycling and walking each trip affords— although panic not, I’m talking easy-to-ride electric bikes and comfy trainers, not sweat, Lycra and technical hiking boots. Perhaps, however, the greatest pull of a Slow Cyclist trip is the attention to detail, the intricate planning of each moment of every day.”
