Some of the distance...

Heiko, Belle,

I'm planning to leave the UK on Sunday/Monday 5/6 June, riding to Brugge, Frankfurt and then onwards through Czech, Hungary and Romania down to Istanbul. We could probably ride a section together?

I plan that bit to take about 3 weeks, riding every other day so that I have a day to explore each city. Let me know what you think!

Hi,

Right now I'm in Romania and I will heading to Turkey in a few days.
I'm not sure if I ride over Istanbul again, or just avoid the stress in the big city. But if, I'll come to the Club.

I did not do any route-planig jet, but I think I'll enter Turkey first of June and will be at the Iranian border by the 20. of June. If there is time left before I would like to visit Georgia for a short time. So if there is anybody on the same way, let me know.

Greetings Heiko

I'm currently in Kosovo heading for Istanbul. I will ride in Turkey through June and I will continue on to Russia and central Asia during July, back to Europe in August.

Hope to see some of you on the road,

Jake

Hi Jake,

Witch Countries you are planing to visit on the way to central Asia and back?
And what are your plans for Turkey?

Right now I'm in Troy at the Westcoast of Türkey, and I'll do some Sightseeing on the westcoast, before I'm going east.
After that my Route will be Iran, Turkmenistan, Usbekistan, Tadschikistan, Kirgisen, Kasachstan...

Just give me a update where you are, so we can maybe meet on the way.

Güllegülle

Heiko
