Bei den Emiraten und Oman kommen einen gleich Bilder von Sindbad und 1.001 Nacht in den Sinn, aber auch schier endlose heiße Wüsten. Kurzum eine perfekte Region, um sich Fahrrad und Zelt zu packen und auf den Weg zu machen.

Bikerafting in Siberia: With bike and inflatable boat through Sayan and Altai
by Richard Löwenherz, tour started August 2014, submitted 11 April 2015
Asia: Russia
language: de

A couple of years I wondered how to cross the Sayan and Altai mountains with a start from lake Baikal in one ride from east to west, because this area in Russia is only reachable by a couple of dead-end roads from the east, north and west. Between this roads no usual connections exists - pure wilderness dominates over hundreds of kilometers, so it seemed to be necessary to combine the destinations with big detours... But with the time I found out, that there are drivable tracks in the Altai which connect the dead-end roads. Only a crossing of Sayan seemed really impossible by bike... until I read about 'packrafts' - lightweight inflatable boats for combined land-water trips. That was the answer to my dream trip! I decided to cross the trackless section of Sayan with such a packraft and my bike on it - until the next road appeared to continue with the bike...

Hanoi to Dali
by Igor Kovse, tour started October 2013, submitted 21 November 2013
Asia: Vietnam, China

If you followed reports from the ultralight cycle-touring page, than you know a certain Mr. Iik - a man with two distinctive features: he rides bicycles and he doesn't live in the town he was born. After touring for two consecutive years in a civilized manner in France, this year Mr. Iik opted for a more exotic ground: Vietnam and China. What was the motivation for such a tour, he now cannot fully recall, but the highly probable guess is that it was not to lose touch with "true" cycle touring - means adventure, cultural shock, cheap accommodation and food, stealth camping, self-sufficiency, suffering and that sort of thing.

Kyrgyzstan mit Freundin, Zelt und Bike

"Oh, oh, Lütte, das sieht gar nicht gut aus!", hatte ich meiner Freundin zugerufen, als sie vor mir fahrend versuchte, einen Bergpass von 3200 Meter Höhe mit einer Geschwindigkeit von 0,3 km/h zu erklimmen.

Dass ein solches Tempo in einem Land mit 7 Tausender und einer gigantischen Bergkette, einem den Pass nicht wirklich näher bringt, kann man sich vorstellen...

Kyrgyzstan-Auf dem Weg zum Song Koel
On horse tracks through the Tian Shan and a finale in the Pamirs
by Richard Löwenherz, tour started September 2012, submitted 16 April 2013
language: de

Central Asia attracted with its gigantic mountains and secluded paths that I wanted to experience as much as possible. With my "Yak", which I bought six years ago at a bazaar in Mongolia, I spent six weeks in the Tian Shan in the Pamirs of Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. Rather unplanned I chosed a few times connecting paths that turned out to be animal and equestrian trails. But finally these sections were the most impressive of the entire trip... A continuation of the journey through the Pamirs was not possible because previous fights in Khorog resulted in the temporary closure of the Gorno-Badakhshan region. Merely a detour towards Kalaikhum I was able to try.

We are 2 Indians who have decided to hit the road on our cycles and rediscover our country slowly but surely. This is our first ever touring trip together and we ride into this quite unprepared, but we are learning with every hour that passes and we are loving it even more with every minute on the road. We have just about started and it has already been an overwhelming ride. With 5 months more to go, we can't wait to expect everything that road is going to spring upon us.

Overland touring
by Jacques & Mandy, tour started June 2012, submitted 8 June 2012

It's hard to describe the feeling when you're just about to start an extended overland trip - it's even harder to describe the feeling when that trip is about to end, but the end of one trip however means that you are that little bit closer to the beginning of the next adventure.

We completed our 1st overland trip after 545 days on the road, traveling just over 70,000km and crossing 35 countries.

Our 2nd trip was always going to happen, it was just a matter of deciding how, when and where and after a lot of deliberation we finally decided on the next adventure. Some people think it's a bit extreme when comparing it to our trip from Oz to Cape Town, but what would life really be like without a bit of adventure and challenges. After all, we are all here to live life...!

A bicycle! Yes, that's right, a bicycle!!

We are hoping to cover about 20,000 km over a planned 12 month period starting in Indonesia, heading north from there through SE Asia into southern China before making a u-turn to go south once again through Vietnam before hopping onto a plane to continue in India to finally reach Nepal.

Por ahora hemos recorrido la costa norte del Mare Nostrum y continuamos nuestro viaje en sentido horario. Un viaje donde lo principal no son los paisajes sino las personas.

Two oldies going on a long bicycle ride
by Lynne Roberts, tour started July 2008, submitted 21 October 2011
language: English

Twenty years ago we cycled half way round the world, so we thought we'd better have another go before we get too old to do ANYTHING, let alone cycle!

So after 4 months in Europe (the training ground) we hit South India, then a quick hop over the ocean to South East Asia. When we were Asia'd out we decided to go to South America, via the UK (planning is NOT our forte). From Venezuela we headed south to Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia from which we headed back up to Central America (remember what I said about planning?) to meet up with friends and family. This took approx 2 wonderful years. I wonder where we'll go next time?

Cycling Japan was my first journey on a bicycle. Outside the big cities, Japan is indeed a great country to cycle on low budget with heaps of free camping opportunities, great and affordable food and no absolutely tourist scam. The helpful and kind Japanese contributed so much to my experience. A few word of Japanese do make a difference.

Mit dem Anspruch, den Weg weitgehend mit dem Fahrrad zurueckzulegen, ist es ein Erfahren fremder Laender und Kulturen, auch bzw. besonders jenseits klassischer Touristenziele.

Two New Zealanders heading East across the landmasses of Europe and Asia
by Emma and Justin, tour started March 2010, submitted 5 September 2010

We're Emma and Justin, two New Zealanders who have 'gone cycling' after six years working and living in London.

We talked about the possibility of a big trip quietly at first. We were on a train in England somewhere and we sketched a rudimentary map which plotted our way towards Russia. Our cycling trips became more ambitious, and we tested our enthusiasm for the idea by cycling the length of the UK (Lands End to John O'Groats) over three weeks in 2009. After 6 years living away from New Zealand we decided it was time to pack up London lives, quit jobs and go.

We have been on the road since March 2010 and intend to reach the edge of Asia by March 2012. Our website documents some of the places we've discovered on our travels.

I had such a good time I continued on spending 9 months cycling New Zealand and Australia. In 2009 I cycled through Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Thailand.
