DALAMAN MOUNTAINS

After a storm lasting 3 days the mountains around Dalaman were snow covered and glistening in the winter sun.

The tarmac roads soon gave way to gravel tracks as I climbed higher and deeper into the surrounding hills.

The first 1000 meters up was quite an easy pleasent ride, just pottering along at 2000 rpm in second and third gear gliding over the gravel.

From here on up the wind became stronger and the temperature dropped rapidly, my fingers starting to freeze inside my gloves.

The wind was getting stronger all the time now and the gusts were making me swerve around on the gravel, my fingers were now painfull so I decided to err on the side of coution and terminate my asent for today and return down, I will try again another day when the wind is not so strong.
