Following the route of İzmir, Kuşadası and Milas, he reached Muğla and Fethiye as his final stop. He was welcomed by local cyclists who pedalled alongside as far the Fethiye Evi where Tom was greeted by the Council’s Band. FIG, FETAV and UK Honorary Consul Mustafa Şıkman were also present at welcoming ceremony. In his speech, Tom Kelly thanked everyone who has shown their support along the way and he was very happy to finish the journey in his second home Fethiye. “When I set out from England on April 10, I did not expect this much attention. But today, I saw here that I’m doing the right thing.”
