Silk Road Mountain Race – A bikepacking expedition

The Silk Road Mountain Race came to life in 2018. A bikepacking route and event that travels through the wild and beautiful countryside of Kyrgyzstan.

With its terrain roads, nearly 4,000-meter high peaks and ruggedness, it is one of the most difficult cycling challenges in the world. In this report, we show with the photos of Lajos Köves what adventures the event of 2021 had in store for him.

Wrapping, traveling – wrapping, traveling. Also for these extreme adventure tours, the Silk Road Mountain Race , all entrants come with their own equipment. This requires a lot of preparation, follow-up, and logistics, which can be considered part of the training plan.
