Cycling Tour

MTBtourZin om te fietsen.?

Met deze rondreis op de fiets maak je kennis met de mensen onderweg , op bijzondere plekken die je aandoet en op je overnachtingsplek. Je fietst zelfstandig met de tolk en de auto met chauffeur in de beurt. Je ziet elkaar in ieder geval op de aan het einde van de dag. Het is een uitdagende fietsroute, waarbij je ook “off the road” gaat. Je komt langs mooie bergrivieren, canyons, maar je geniet ook van de weidse uitzichten langs het Yssyk Kul. Afwisseling genoeg!

Bijzonderheden van de reis:

Je kunt kiezen om je eigen fiets mee te nemen, maar ook een fiets huren is een optie. De fiets is een mountainbike, een off road fiets of een trekking fiets met brede banden. Je fietst zonder bagage, deze gaat mee in de auto die naar de overnachtingsplek gaat.
Er zijn mogelijkheden om de route aan te passen zodat deze zwaarder/lichter/langer wordt.
Deze route is prima te combineren met een verdere rondreis naar bijvoorbeeld At Bashy of een trekking van een paar dagen.
