invites you to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience this August in an adventure race unfolding through a beautiful, challenging, exotic and inhospitable environment of Kyrgyzstan
The Silk Route Bike Challenge
adventure will take you to places explored by Marco Polo, invaded by Genghis Khan and visited by travelers of the well-known Great Silk Route. Orbea promises the Silk Route Bike Challenge will open the door to spots most riders will never go to.
Between August 2 and 10, 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 372 miles 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, Orbea will take care of: transport for companions, mechanical service, medical assistance, infrastructure, etc.
has already started and will remain open until July 15. Advance booking by mid-May for discount prices.
