We said an emotional goodbye to our bikes yesterday as we handed over the keys to the charity, apparently there has been a lot of interest in them here with people phoning daily to see if they have arrived so we're hoping they will raise lots of money. read more »
Ulaanbaatar-Mongolia. We got up early this morning and hit the road which was luckly tarmac but it was freezing. Then 60 miles out of UB the road turned to mud in the rain but we slipped and slide though and finely hit the city at about 3.
Buutsagann, mongolia. Ride yesterday bit easier but tiredness setting in. Beginning 2 wonder if bikes wil make it, rear shock worse. Electrical prob with craigs bike. Spent all morning trying 2 get round river-deep sand dunes. Still smiling.
Camped by a river last night so got a chance was some clothes. Camped at the Mongolian border now waiting for it to open tomorrow. Changed our tires tonight. There is snow on the ground and apparently a foot over the border. Might have no comms from now on.
