Mongolia is a land locked country bordered by China and Russia and is one of the least densely populated countries in the entire world. A third of its population live and dwell within its capital Ulan Bator while the rest follow its traditional nomadic culture of herding livestock in its never ending landscape. Not a bad place to go for a bike ride ey?
As Tyler was busy in India becoming a yoga instructor (more on that later), I decided to take a trip of a life time and head off with my friend Josh to the pasturelands of Mongolia. Four weeks in total were spent in the lands of Genghis Khan, three of which were spent on a saddle. 695km of trails and tarmac were conquered by leg power and a lot of rice had been eaten. Bums were sore and muscles ached, we got sunburnt, chased by dogs and battered by hail storms, but looking back, it was one hell of a trip.
