Where do you cycle when there are no roads? Vast and wild, the landscapes of Mongolia are the perfect setting for a rugged, off-road biking adventure. Dirt, grass and gravel roads abound. Where there are none, simply pedal your way across open steppe – the rolling undulating terrain that makes up the majority of the country.
We have developed great cycling routes in collaboration with the local communities that we work with. Mongolia’s awe-
All trips can be booked as a private or small group experience. They can be adjusted to suit you. All departures are guaranteed with a minimum of two. The group size is a maximum of six as this allows for more flexibility. Maybe you want to bike but your travel partner doesn’t? No problem. Both come along. Your travel partner will receive a ‘no biking’ discount – details on each PDF.
Come and enjoy the freedom of the open road, rejuvenate your spirit of adventure and escape the pressures of the western world. We combine cycle sections with travelling by 4×4, day hikes on foot and with the option of horse treks. With the focus being on local living. There will be wild camping in some of the more remote areas – it’s entirely appropriate in a country of nomads. There are also ger homestays alongside local families as well as rustic ger camps – we don’t use the typical generic tourist ger camps. There’ll be opportunities for hot showers along the way and for any solo travellers, you’ll each get your own tent at no extra cost.
Route and Distance
The route and distances are fluid to allow for who you may meet, the weather and the road conditions. You don’t have to be a professional cyclist. However, you’ll enjoy it more if you’re reasonably fit and have some off-road cycling experience. You can expect approximately 50km per day with flat and slightly undulating sections combined with a few more challenging climbs. Variable surface conditions will add an extra element of challenge in places but you’ll always be accompanied by the tour vehicle so if you at times prefer four wheels to two, just hop on board.
We work closely with the Trek Bike Shop in Ulaanbaatar. Marlin 5 mountain bikes are provided but with the option to upgrade such as to a fat bike or bring your own bike (with a discount offered).
