DO YOU WANT TO HAVE THE EXPERIENCE OF YOUR LIFE?
WE ARE INTRODUCING SILK ROUTE BIKE CHALLENGE: A 600KM ADVENTURE ACROSS ONE OF THE MOST INHOSPITABLE, WILDEST PLACES ON EARTH. FIVE EXCITING STAGES WHERE SOLIDARITY, COEXISTENCE AND ENDURANCE WILL STEAL THE SHOW. AND A SINGLE GOAL: TO GET ALIVE TO THE END OF THE TRIP.
After five years planning tours in Kyrgyzstan, we’ve come up with a new adventure. An adventure to discover amazing landscapes and a rich cultural heritage, associated with fabulous names like Genghis Khan, Marco Polo or the Silk Road.
In five days, we’ll come across huge lakes, deep valleys and giant mountains, going over 6,000m in height. But the wild landscapes aren’t the only attraction in this adventure. We’ll also get familiar with the nomadic lifestyles of the people living around Song Köl Lake in the summer. We’ll sleep in cozy yurts, the dwelling structures made popular by Genghis Khan in his invasion campaigns.
Silk Route Bike Challenge is an experience you’ll never forget.
There’ll be stage prizes for the day’s winners in both the men’s and the women’s categories.
In addition, there’ll be a jersey for the overall leader.
- 1st place: An Orbea Alma bicycle for the overall winners in both the men’s and the women’s GC.
- 2nd place: An Orbea outfit for the overall runners-up in both the men’s and the women’s GC.
- 3rd place: A Mavic set of wheels for the man and woman who come in the third place.
