Second leg advice please

Greetings,

I'm planning Around the World Tour (AWT) in 2007 and am busy planning the first leg - Halifax, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, Labrador, TransCanada, Rockies, USA, Mexico etc,etc to Argentina. Then come up the other side by shipping the bike to New Zealand, then Australia, and that's where I run out of steam. I've read on the HUBB that China is no go unless you have big bucks, which I don't, but would like to ride through Mongolia, Russia, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Germany etc and back in time for tea!!(about a year later<img>)

So any suggestions as to a route between Australia and Mongolia please.

Oh and if I'm riding part of what you are doing at the time, then the company would be nice.

In the same boat...

Hi Stag, I'm in Argentina now and will be flying to Australia in two weeks or so. From Melbourne or Sydney I plan to ride to Darwin. From there the bike and I will fly to Singapore. After riding to Bangkok I plan on flying from there to Mongolia, skipping China. As I get closer I'll work out the details and let you know what I find. If I make it from Bangkok to Mongolia I'll post a detailed account on the shipping page and message you when I do. Good luck! Dave.

Think your cheapest option is fly/ship to Japan and ship to Russia and ride from there?

Smile China maybe do-able

Sorry folks been off line for a couple of weeks.

Back now.

Someone at the Belgium meeting suggested that I buy a ticket for the 2008 Olympics (even synchonised swimming ) and use that to see if I can prise my way in. They will have to be more open then surely.

Waddya think?
