I don’t know what it is about adventure bikes and touring, but they seem to constantly captivate me. It might be the dream of adventuring to far off destinations, or simply a passion for how unique some of these bikes are that show such dynamic capabilities. Either way, it’s trips like this one that bring such a value to the sport of cycling.
An epic journey through the Pamir mountains of Central Asia on the 2016 Silk Route tour. Reaching the highest point of 4600 meters on the road from Beijing to Istanbul.
