Through the valleys of Cappadocia, Turkey
Turnip and beet root juice
Anywhere hearing the waves of the sea and seeing the Milky Way
Can was born and raised in a Kurdish family, high in the plateau that is Eastern Anatolia. After moving to Antalya along the Mediterranean, Can began his athletic career in orienteering. He has competed on behalf of the Turkish National Team, winning the gold medal in team relay in the Southeast European Orienteering Championship and traveling internationally to compete. Though cycling has long been a part of Can’s training regime, he studied tourism and hotel management so he could narrow his focus on guiding bike tours. He graduated as a tour guide in 2017 and began his dream job: leading outdoor tours. Can loves exploring ancient sites, reading history, trail running, and—of course—cycling.
