"You'll push yourself harder than you thought possible, ride through extreme weather- rain, wind and sand storms, tough technical terrain- mud, sand, dirt, loose large rocks- and see landscapes and areas that are truly remote and untouched. The biggest gift from a challenging tour like this is the recognition of how much you're truly capable of."

“One of the most intense adventure I ever did. Extraordinary sceneries, cheerful staff, awesome group. This is a mental, emotional and physical journey that you will never forget”

“All that suffering allows for a level of immersion that other trips can’t offer. When it’s really tough, you go beyond what you believed you could do…Pedal 7,600 miles across Asia, spending over four and a half months on the ancient silk-trade route”
