Road of Bones /Mongolia by bicycle??

Good Day All

Live in South Texas - doing theTDF thing and do u the cost and fact it is a bit complex to get a motorbike over there/etc... was thinking of doing the area by bicycle.. cheaper (takes longer) maybe a good thing in the way of "being there" in the adventure - but then can be other issues using a bicycle!

any comments from people in the Know!

thanks

The toughest mozzie repellant I found up to now was from OZ. Worked on mozzies AND bush flies ;-)

Make sure to use top tech bicycle equipment that takes alot of battering. No aluminum pannier racks - only chrome moly or stainless steel. Waterproof pannier bags, like Karrimore, Carradice or Ortlieb.

Enjoy!

You don't say where your complete journey will be to but if planning cycling for a long trip you could get caught out by time limits.

There are now time limits on how long you can stay in Russia on a single visit. 90 days in any 180 days now a condition of Multi Entry Business Visas.

Sorry for my long delay, Hans, but I'm changing home. Uff, what an hard work...
I'm not back from Africa, I still have to go: the travel is planned for august, every day I feel more excited... In the meanwhile, if you travel to Italy, you can find me in Reggio Emilia (Emilia Romagna). The is waiting...

But maybe it's better if we follow in another place, we are spamming the Sandman's thread...
