Has anyone any plans to ride the sibirsky extreme trail ? I had hoped to do a big trip in 2014 but it looks like I might not be ready in time so I have been thinking of doing this trail in 2015 . I have done plenty of solo offroad miles ( Siberia , Andes mountains, SE asia ,Amazon ) but for this trip I though some company would be good. So if the is anyone with plans to ride this or even just some of it please let me know
I would be riding a DR350... I think that machine is just about right for me. Not too heavy, and I think I know enough about the mechanics to do basic maintenance and repair.
I am 54, I've been riding a bike (mostly on road) for some 20 years.
I might be accompanied by my 25 yr old son on a similar DR350 (not certain yet).
My intention is follow the track and end up in mongolia after 4 weeks.
I would then leave the bike in mongolia, to cross the border to china. Stay in china for one month. Then return to mongolia and use the bike to drive through siberia all the way back to Europe (another month).
Planning is that this should happen in 2015 june to sep time-frame.
Experience: I have some off-road experience (not a lot) on the dr350 and on a GS1200...
Anyone that wants to tag along on (part of) the road with me is welcome, taking into account this is no race against the clock...By which I mean that the only limitation for me is that after 3 months I need to be back in Belgium, all the rest is optional. If I don't make it to mongolia in 4 weeks, then I will adjust plans accordingly.
This is the trail that was ploted and riden by Walter colebatch and friends Sibirsky Extreme 2012 - The Toughest Ride of Them All - ADVrider
Please read this thread/ ride report to see if you think this is the kind of trip you would like to make as its a very hard ride and not for everyone . 3 months offroad will be hard on the mind ,body and bike
I will be doing most of my training on a mountain bike and green laning on my XR as well as working in construction this keeps me in good shape. I might even do some mountain bike , road and time trial racing as this helps with concentration when the body is starting to get tired
