Kartepe (Keltepe) climb

Yesterday, we climbed to Kartepe (means “snow mountain”), or formerly known as “Keltepe” (means “bald mountain”). With 1699 meters height, Kartepe is the third highest mountain of the Marmara region of Turkey. There’s a ski resort atop it. With 16.6 km length and 7.4% average gradient, the climb is categorized as HC by strava, and some sections are over 16%. We rode 188.8 km and climbed 3,468 m total.
