Silk Route Bike Challenge: the adventure of your life

2014-01-24

Orbea proudly invites you to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience in August this year, a race unfolding through a beautiful, challenging, exotic and inhospitable environment, in Kyrgyzstan.

Your adventure will take you to places explored by Marco Polo, invaded by Genghis Khan and visited by travellers of the well-known Great Silk Route. We’re opening the door to spots most human beings will never go to, because we know your thirst for adventure is more intense than that of most human beings. And we promise the Silk Route Bike Challenge will quench it.

Between 2 and 10 August, you’ll ride past huge lakes, deep valleys and mountains over 6,000m high. Besides pedalling, you’ll be able to live as the nomads do in the ‘country of the yellow sun’ and sleep in Mongolian yurts, tent-like dwellings like that the Great Khan used to sleep in.

As many as 600km and five stages make up this challenge, where you’ll only have to worry about rolling on your bike and enjoying the beauty of the landscape. Everything else, we’ll take care of: transport for companions, mechanical service, medical assistance, infrastructure, etc.

Registration has already started and will remain open until 15 July. Advance booking by mid-May for discount prices.

Don’t think it twice. Come enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime adventure!
