singletrack in the Tien Shan

Boundless miles of rugged mountains and a focal point of the ancient Silk Road, remote adventure is synonymous with Kyrgyzstan. Along with professional riders Tom Oehler and Rene Wildhaber, this year adventure photographer Dan Milner took to the ice and dust of the Kyrgyz wilderness for a ten day expedition. With 9 hour hike-a-bikes, a number of 4000m passes over 4000m and washing in ice cold mountain streams, this is exactly the kind of MTB expedition to pique our fancy.

Keen to take on your own multi-day MTB expedition, how about a crossing of Ethiopia’s Simien Mountains?
