    KKH Equipment

    Roubaix Bikes: perfect for this type of thing. I would say the Roubaix is the perfect touring bike due to its compliance, all-day comfort and speed. Luggage: For this tour I ran 4 bags. Restrap saddle harness bag, frame and top tube bag and Specialized front bar bag. Durable and not too heavy. Basically had…

  • KKH Alternative Routes

    KKH Alternative Routes

    More places to explore! I think we touched the surface in places to ride in the area and will try and go back to the China side this year and maybe PK next. CN Kashgar: There seem to be various route options around Kashgar. Don’t forget your border permits and check what is open or…

  • KKH4 Small hills

    KKH4 Small hills

    Day 10: To Murree Hills A very nice day with a shortish but hilly climb up to the Murree Hill station. Nice and cool and chilled ontop. Recommended as an escape and place to relax a bit. Found a very nice, rather posh, old colonial hotel and setup camp there. Day 11: Murree Loop We…

  • KKH3 Bandit Lands

    KKH3 Bandit Lands

    Day 7: Normal to Chillas. We left the security of Hunza and cycled south getting our first security detail. For the next few days, we basically had armed police following or leading us. Very hospitable of them but not really needed (I guess until too late!). Good riding and good to be dropping in altitude.…

  • KKH2 Hunza Valley

    KKH2 Hunza Valley

    The place to explore! Amazing scenery and people. I hope to be back. Day 5: back up the border – Khunjerab Pass. A massive day of cycling and one of my top 10 rides.. 80km up to 4700m! The climb is not so hard but the air is not so thick, so the last hour…

  • KKH1 Kashgar & China Side

    KKH1 Kashgar & China Side

    I decided to turn up a little early and check out Kashgar. Stayed in the old town. A touch OTT on the disneyfication but that could be said about most old tourist towns anywhere. Cool to check out the old mosque and the sense of scale and markets of the ancient trading center are still…

  • Lots of planning

    Lots of planning

    Been busy planning for this trip! A bit worried about cold weather at the end of April at 4000+ meters! Also the recent security situation. Both seem manageable and within our risk acceptance parameters! Anyway better to be a bit over prepared and geared for this type of thing. Self-sufficient, take all our own gear,…

  • 斯里兰卡骑行之旅 Sri Lanker

    斯里兰卡骑行之旅 Sri Lanker

    2024 02: 主路有点疯狂,没有骑行乐趣。 小路提供了良好的骑行体验,因此请尝试仅通过乡村小路、砾石运河路和清静、起伏的小路来规划路线。 强烈建议使用砾石自行车,并配备大量变速来应对陡峭的路面,而一些半光滑的胖胎(例如 Sworks 42 )非常适合恶劣的道路和干燥的越野路线。 找一辆后援车很方便,而且不是很贵。 一年中的这个时候天气很好,但请记住防晒霜! 美味的食物、非常好的服务、很多值得一看的东西和有趣的住宿,完美的假期(或骑行)……。 Cycling in Sri Lanker 2024 02: The main roads are kind of crazy and no fun for cycling. The back roads offer a good cycling experience so try and plot your routes only via the village lanes, gravel canal roads , and quiet, undulating…

  • SFR Day 12 & 13

    SFR Day 12 & 13

    Day 12 was 136km Cao Bang to Pingxiang Not much to report on this day. First half was visually more interesting than 2nd. Crossing the border was uneventful. Pingxiang could have been a nice city in the pinnacle hills but in need of a spring clean. Day 12 was 195km to Nanning Airport A horrible wet…

  • SFR D11

    SFR D11

    225km 3500m Dong Van to Cao Bang Was expecting a long day but not this long but nothing to complain about! Morning started off with tired legs from the day before but stunning views of the rocky landscape and pinnacle hills made me forget that. The highlight of the scenery of the trip!. A very…
