Why?

This site is to memorialize the Silk Road Bicycle trip.  I will bicycle from Beijing China to Istanbul Turkey on October 3, 2018.  LeAnne will meet me in Istanbul.  The end of the trip is TBD but we plan to see LeAnne's ancestral homeland of Croatia and travel for about 2 weeks before returning to Ut

A poor ride is better than a good long walk.

Sporadic Updates

The tour will be about 140 days long.  The tour operator was deceptive on the number of camping days.  All one can count on is a hotel the day before the rest day and the rest day.
