Cycling the Silk Road

Between July and November 2016 I was cycling the Silk Road between Europe and China. The original plan to stop in Iran quickly fell apart.

I hurried up to get over Tajikistan’s Pamir highway before winter, but didn’t get a visa, and instead cycled 1,200km in 85 hours back through the desert in Uzbekistan. Then I did a big detour to Lake Issyk-Kul, and finally crossed the snow-covered mountains of Kyrgyzstan to get to China in late October.
