Cycling in Central Asia

One of the best ways to spend your time is by cycle touring. The environment is not suitable for cycle touring, though, so if one is planning to cycle tour, they must be aware of the possible pitfalls. There are many kilometres to cover, and the population is very sparse. The temperatures usually fluctuate from scorching heat to bitter cold, the roads in this region range from shit-style to Swiss-style.

Where to cycle

Kazakhstan: Little is offered regarding visual stimulation by the widespread deserts and the steppe lands of Kazakhstan and should only be tried by the well experienced and mentally stable cyclist. In the south and southeastern parts of the country, there are numerous cycling opportunities. It also has the most excellent roads in Kazakhstan.

Uzbekistan: Most essential areas are within simple riding distance in the eastern parts of the country, leave alone the desert in the west of the country that holds some beautiful sights. It is the best place to meet people in their mountain bikes and get to know the atmosphere of the ancient Silk Road.

Kyrgyzstan: the country has a superb infrastructure, and because the country is beautiful, therefore more cyclists are attracted to the country than any other country in Central Asia. A lot of preparation is required if you desire to take your mountain bike to explore the mountain steepness.

Tajikistan: It is difficult to cycle touring the roof. It is a special feeling to cycle your mountain bike in the area. It is recommended to take this journey that is lonely to the most remote mountain passes in the world.

Turkmenistan: It is highly recommended that you hurry through with the mountain bike since the visa only lasts for only five days.
