Köyceğiz Gets Ready for Motorcycle Festival
Motorcycle Festival, organized by Köyceğiz Municipality and Ege Yolcu Magazine, takes place in Köyceğiz Günlüklük Camping Area between August 20, 21, 22 and 23, 2015 this year. Several races and concerts of Marathon, Örümcek and Gece Yolcuları bands will be held in this year’s motorcycle festival.
Mayor Kamil Ceylan states; “We have completed our festival arrangements with Ege Yolcu Motorcycle Group this year. We are happy to welcome nearly 1500 motorcyclists in our town. This festival is not only named with our town; it is also promoted everywhere from Yatağan to Fethiye because our motorcyclist friends coming to Köyceğiz travel all around this region. When they share their photos and information about our region, they bring significant contribution to the promotion of our region. For this reason, I would like to thank them personally. We are pleased to welcome our motorcyclist guests bringing great touristic and economical contribution to Köyceğiz.”
Mayor Ceylan also gave information about the camping area where the festival is to take place: “This year, we have started landscaping in Günlüklü Camping Area this year. This place is flooded by rains in winter and causes restorations which used to become great burden for our council. In order to prevent this, we have decided to do landscaping increasing the ground level of the area. Unfortunately, this arrangement has been extended due to technical inconveniences but we have turned this place into an area where our motorcyclist guests could accommodate. I hope all my motocross friends will enjoy this trip. I would like to send them my love and respect in advance.”
Ege Yolcu Magazine Motorcycle Group Manager and Festival Coordinator Nadir Şahin said, “As we had informed our festival date to Turkey Motorcycle Platform in advance, it does not cross with other festival dates in other cities. It means that more motocross riders will come to Köyceğiz this year. Our friends attended the other motorcycle festivals, announced our festival and invited others with banners. Marathon Band will perform on August 20 on the first day of the festival; Örümcek Band and Gece Yolcuları will be on stage on August 23, Saturday as well. We are going to introduce our region and show them around in the events during the day. All our people are invited to our festival that will bring great contribution to our region.”
